I Got Kicked!

This morning at 5:07 a.m., Celeste let out a short cry. Nothing unusual: it might be a bad dream, it might be a sudden waking, it's probably nothing. Our usual MO is to listen and see if it reoccurs or progresses or if she just goes back to sleep. This morning, it was just a one-off cry followed by more sleep.

But Evelin said she could feel the baby swimming laps. I put my hand on her belly, expecting to feel nothing — as with Celeste, this one seems to get real quiet whenever I try to feel any movement — and did. Evelin said to push a little more firmly, pressing her hand down over mine. Suddenly *wham* — there's a punch or kick from the inside that I could feel! That's so cool.
