30 Weeks!

Getting bigger...

It is hard to believe that we are at the 30-week point! Ok, I say that, and just a few weeks ago, I would have been amazed to have only 10 weeks left, but as my belly is rapidly growing larger (and I am growing correspondingly more uncomfortable), 10 weeks is beginning to sound like a very long time. :) Snuggie celebrated his 30-week bday with lots of acrobatics, kicks, and punches. Several times today, I looked down and noticed my belly moving around wildly. I think our little man is becoming quite the little dancer. :)

I think my favorite part of the past week or two has been the bond that Clint and I have been developing with our little guy. Clint has gotten in the habit of talking to Snuggie at night, and the Snugs loves it! Even when he hasn't been moving at all, he wakes up as soon as Clint starts talking to him and starts doing all kinds of kicks and other movements. I will feel him move toward Clint's voice and then he kicks vigorously in response to Clint's questions (Clint's favorite thing to do is tell him about things that are going on with us and get his opinion--telling him "kick once for yes and twice for no." Not surprisingly, Snuggie always has an opinion :). When Clint is finished talking to him, I always feel a barrage of angry little kicks, as if Snuggie is telling us that he's not finished with the conversation. I knew Snugs would be a daddy's boy once he arrived, but I had no idea it would begin so early...
