The Best Feeling ... Except!

It is not the first time that I have mentioned that I am a worry-er. The first time that I felt Darwin, (this is what I call my future baby ... until we pick a final name. Joe usually changes his name everytime. It ranges from Charles to Carl and Edwin or something random,) move I was overjoyed! If he is squirming around inside ... I know that all is well. I don't have to be paranoid any longer. This is the best feeling ever -- except ...

When it is 3:30 a.m. and you are trying to sleep. I woke up today quite early. Dozed a bit until 4 and then I was really awake. I tried to go back to sleep ... and every time I got close I got a nice swift kick in the stomach. Around 5:00 I decided to get up and I have been up ever since.

I am officially tired and ornery. SO SO SO ready for bed!! (This is NOT my belly by the way ... but look at the little foot!!!)

I've seen that picture before and it is just amazing! Sounds like your baby's going to be a soccer player! Ha. Hope you got some sleep later on.

"He's gonna be a socca' playa'...he iiis!" Seriously, just the beginning of the joys of motherhood. Whatever you do, don't read my friend Misty's blog... though it's exceptionally cute most of the time, occasionally she will have a bad day that might make you wanna say, "Get this demon spawn oughta me!" Good thing babies start out so cute, or they'd never have a chance. Just remember though Jen, he will have plenty of aunties to spoil him. And speaking of aunties, have you talked to Becky about your child care dilemma? She just love-a the babies! And she doesn't work. Just chat it over, if you haven't already.

That is an amazing photo... kinda gets you past the cracked ribs (my first) abused bladder (my 3rd and 4th) and all the morning sickness (all of them)

My third child, a boy, seriously was doing flips the last 2 months. I don't know how many times he turned upside down... Now, he is a natural in gymnastics... go figure!
