whew- this kid has taken up gymnastics lately. just a few more years and we might be able to register it for the Chinese Olympic Gymnastic Team (okay, i kid, i kid…)
and, big news – AJ was finally able to feel the kicks last night!!!
for the past few weeks i have been known to grab his hand and yank his arm into an oddly unnatural position to try and capture the tiny movements.
he was always so sweet to linger there for an uncomfortable moment while i would say, “Did you feel that? how about that? Did you feel that one?”
and he would just look at me, puzzled, and say, “no.”
last night, after another failed attempt, i started poking and prodding on The Tum… and then some big kicks erupted, so i grabbed AJ’s hand once more… about eight seconds later – KICK.
The look on AJ’s face was priceless. the pure definition of Shock & Awe… followed by a look resembling the thought, “what is going on inside there?”
Dear, this has been going on for awhile… and it’s getting more pronounced… so glad you could join the party! 🙂
at this exact moment, This Child has a heel wedged into my bottom-right rib. whooweeeee….
keep on dancing baby b!
