Kick-Start

On Saturday I was sitting at my computer. My cat, who is not typically a cuddler, jumped up on my lap and plopped down on my belly. (All 20 lbs. of him.) I'm not sure if this surprised The Bean, or if he thought it was funny, but I received six quick kicks to the center of my stomach! This made me laugh pretty hard and for that I got three more kicks. Up till then, I had felt tiny movements that I thought might possibly be the baby, but I was waiting for something more definitive. Thanks Noodle and I hope this isn't the beginnings of sibling rivalry.

How funny!

The kicking is my favorite part! Enjoy it!

The baby used to punch Mike when he'd put his face on my belly. Baby martial arts = awesome.

Have you experienced your first round of baby hiccups yet? The first few times are adorable. After that, particularly when it happens in the middle of the night, it's a wee bit annoying.

The Bean moved?!? That makes me extremely happy. I've been waiting for that ever since the week 15 posting (I think) said that you were entering the time when you would start to feel the baby move. I can't wait until we're in the same place and I can box the little guy.
