“At first an ordeal and then an accomplishment, the daily run becomes a staple, like bread, or wine, a fine marriage, or air. It is also a free pass to friendship.”

Baby Ninja

My computer keeps taking a nose dive from functioning properly.  I have restored the original factory settings and am currently going through the fun process of 20 million windows updates before I can actually USE it.

So, since my husband is out of town (with the ipad), I have stolen his computer to get my much needed internet fix.

Anywhoodle - up until this week - feeling the baby move as been a rather sporadic occurrence.  She really enjoyed kicking during my massages in California....but since the half marathon attempt - I really hadn't felt her in a few days...and I have to admit that freaked me out a teeny bit.

Then yesterday dawns....and she's decided to start training for the MIT summer session!  Suddenly, whenever I am sitting down and calm, she taps out a little beat on my insides.  Maybe it's the sudden switch to Summer in Ohio and all the heat?

Today - while at my workout at the gym - she started kicking during my push ups - maybe she was saying "lower Mommy, lower!".

I wish there was a way to accurately describe the feeling.  It's almost like when you lightly drum your fingers on the desk - but it's occurring INSIDE me, just below my navel.  I have to admit - the movie Aliens did come to mind.  LOL.

Still.  It's pretty darn awesome at the moment.  That's all.


  1. That is so cool! I'm glad she is going to be a little fitness fanatic! Apparently she already enjoys the gym. ;) You are going to be a great Mommy, too!!!!

  2. Feeling my kids move was the best part of pregnancy for me!!!!! So special!!!

  3. Aww, yay! I'm glad she's moving around again, although your mention of Aliens made me think of when the baby tears it's way out in Twilight. Ugh, I can't believe I read all 4 of those books. Please still be my friend.

  4. LOL @ Twilight reference. I was conned into reading them as well....so I guess we'll both pretend neither one of us did. ;)

  5. Jennifer said that it felt like Makayla was dancing...she called the episodes "Doodle Dancing."


Comments pretty much make my day - so thank you for yours!
