But my doctor wasn't completely reassured. She wants me to be checking for five movements every hour. Seriously?
So, today I decided to be more attentive to this little one growing inside me. And that is where today's Joyful Moment came. It was actually several Joyful Moments. Little tiny moments. I don't know if he was way more active today, or if it was simply that I was trying to paying more attention. But I felt him a lot. And there's something about it that's just cute. I don't know how else to describe it. Just these little tiny bumps and taps from little tiny feet and fists.
And then another Joyful Moment came when I got to share that fun with Sweet P and Little M at dinner. He started really rolling around in there so they could see the movement just by looking at my tummy. That was pretty amazing to both of them. And then, of course, they wanted to feel him moving too. He almost always stops moving around as soon as they put their hands on my belly, but tonight he kept up the acrobatics. And they LOVED it.
Wishing you all tiny, yet profound Joyful Moments!
