Week Eighteen

Week eighteen is the first official week that Matt got to feel Le Petit Bébé move. I have been feeling the baby move quite a bit in the last few weeks and the movements seemed to keep getting stronger. So, I wanted to do a little test, because it seemed like I could feel the movement with my hand, but I didn't know if it was a mind body connection or something. One night while we were watching TV I could feel the movements pretty constantly, so I put Matt's hand on my belly and didn't say anything when I felt movement, then all of a sudden he said, "was that it?" It was indeed the little one busting some moves. He felt it a few more times in a row and his grin just kept getting bigger the more he could feel it. We are both very excited to have this new connected with our little bell pepper.
