I think I've mentioned earlier that I feel the baby move the most when we go to bed at night. If I didn't, well, now you know. Last night I was laying in bed with my hands on my stomach, and that little guy or girl was really kicking around! I told Blake to give me his hand, and I put it on my stomach. After a few seconds the baby kicked really hard (well, hard for a baby 23 weeks along). I looked over at Blake and asked him all excitedly if he had felt it. I was expecting a big response like, "Oh, wow! Yeah, that was awesome!" What I got was more like, "Oh, yeah." He never took his eyes off the TV. Apparently it was not as awesome as I thought it was. He almost seemed disappointed. I asked him what he expected, the baby to kick his had off my stomach? He kind of looked at me and said yeah, kinda. It made me laugh, I'm not really sure how big and strong he expects the baby to be at this point. I imagine maybe he just thinks a child with his genes couldn't be anything but big and strong :)
Also, I have to give a shout out to my Aunt Cindy. She and Uncle Jer gave us this awesome dresser for the baby. They refinished it and everything for us. I picked it up this past weekend when I went home for my cousin Brad's fiancee's bridal shower. It's so awesome! It goes great with the rocking chair. It's also going to work perfectly as a changing table. My mom was nice enough to buy us a changing pad, and it fits perfectly on the dresser. So a big thanks to Cindy, Uncle Jer, and Mom :)
Speaking of thanks going out to my mom, like I could ever give her (and Dad) enough, the crib that they bought for us as a baby gift has arrived! It's not put together yet, and my parents found out when they went to pick it up that it doesn't fit in their van. They had to pick it up with the truck. That will probably make getting it to our house a lot of fun. It'll also be a fun activity for my dad and Blake to do together :) Anyway, the crib's pretty awesome, too. Here's a picture of what it will look like.
I guess that's about all for now! My entries should be a little more fun now that I've figured out pictures :)
