Baby Boy gave my husband and me a wonderful anniversary gift on Saturday.
I was exhausted after the graduation and a bad night's sleep in Bed Bug Manor, so we were laying down together, my husband watching t.v. and me trying to sleep. Just as I was drifting off, I got the hardest kick to date - my whole stomach jumped.
I grabbed my husband's hand and said, "If you are patient for awhile, I'll bet you can feel him kick."
If you will recall, my husband hasn't been that enthusiastic about the bump. I have taken the advice of many of your comments as well as some IRL friends and not forced the issue. As of late, however, he has been eager to feel the baby move. When his grandma tried to feel it the night before, he said that he wanted to feel it first, so I told him he is going to have to try.
He had his hand on my stomach for about five minutes when it happened again - a great big thump! He looked at me in amazement and asked if that was it. I laughed because well, what else could it be? He jokingly accused me of making my stomach jump, but as I don't see how that would even be physically possible, we both know that it was Baby Boy giving his Daddy a love tap.
Of course, I cried. It was a wonderful moment and truly made our anniversary even more special.
