It's Kicking Time!

I've been feeling this baby move for about 8 weeks now, but Will finally felt "him" this past Sunday when I turned 20 weeks. What joy! It really is The.Most.Amazing.Thing to feel life moving around inside of you, but it's even better when it can be shared! I'm not sure Ella has felt Icee. She always moves her hand when I try to put it in the right spot, insisting, "No, Mommy, Icee's over here." Plus, she has a tiny hand, which makes it harder. :-)

It's interesting that Will didn't feel Ella move until 24 weeks, but of course, I didn't feel Ella until about week 20. I guess the more babies you have, the earlier you feel movement b/c you know what it feels like.

But as I write that exciting news, I can't forget the heartbreaking news I heard yesterday. I'm sure you all have heard by now of Steven Curtis Chapman's 5-year-old daughter Maria who was killed Wed. night in a tragic accident. Let's lift his family up in prayer.

((((((((HUGS)))))))) So very excited for you! It is wonderful to feel the kicks and jumps the little one makes.

Such a sad time for the Chapman family. My heart just aches for them.

Every time I skip over here and notice your ticker I am amazed at how fast this pregnancy is going! :)

hey, did you just add new music? I have noticed lately the music takes long to load and play so maybe it has been here for awhile. Anyway, is that Nicole and Todd singing in Selah? I have never heard them but now reading both of their stories makes their music more special!

Wow. I loved this, too... those little kicks! :)

Yes, Letisha, it is. And it does add much more meaning to the words, doesn't it? Hope you're doing well!

That is so sad about the Chapman's daughter. I told Jeff and we prayed for them.

So exciting you can feel Icee kick!! Sorry I haven't been able to read much lately; we moved the computer and now it's harder to get to it and also watch Benjamin :D Love you and can't wait to see your adorable tummy in person!
