with the baby's room near completion (comparison photos to follow), i am feeling more and more anxious to have his room stocked and decorated for his arrival.
lately this little munchkin has taken to shoving hard against my stomach with his wee little hands and feet. watching him shift and shove and kick makes me smile the smile of a proud mother. he's practicing all of those key survival tactics he'll need for when he's no longer residing inside of my body and, though it is a little overwhelming, i am proud to have a front row seat in this process. his hiccups shake my whole stomach and i can feel the outlines of his hands and feet when i gently press back against his insistent pushes. i cannot wait to meet this strong little boy and see what kind of child he will be on the outside.
