It was an amazing experience watching our little baby move around inside me. As I held Preston's hand and cranked my head for almost an hour to watch the ultrasound screen, most of the time trying desperately to make out what part of the baby I was seeing, I felt the butterflies in my stomach - though not yet from the baby's movement - from the excitement and awe of seeing our very own child for the first time! Wow!
So, it turns out our predictions and inklings were true all along - 2011 truly is the year of COURAGE...Courage Ruah Hall! He is one active little boy, that's for sure. Though I cannot feel him move around yet, we saw him spinning around and moving his limbs for almost an hour. He was playing hide-and-seek most of the time as he buried his face low in the bottom of my womb. Once he was in a good position for a potentially good shot of his face, he covered it with both his arms. Haha. I hope to go in sometime when he's bigger to see if we can get a better photo. But I am overjoyed and pleased with today's experience!
I didn't realize how much my belly has actually grown. But seeing today's picture compared to the one from a couple months ago, I can definitely see the difference!
