It happened!! It finally happened!!!

Ok, ok, I know that I'm impatient -- BUT, it finally happened and it was well worth the wait! What am I talking about you might ask?? James finally felt our baby boy kick last night! I was soooo excited! AND, not only that, but before he felt him, I saw him kick for the first time! It totally caught me off guard! He had just started kicking and I decided I would put my jello down and tell James to come see if he could feel, when I turned to put my empty jello cup on the end table he kicked and I saw it! James was on the couch next to me and I said "Oh my gosh! I just actually saw him kick!" He said "Really?" After that though he stopped kicking, imagine that! LOL! So, I decided to move into the bedroom and lay in there because normally when I get comfy in bed he starts doing somersaults, LOL! Indeed he did, too. I waited for awhile to see if he would keep it up. When he did, I called out to James to come here, but he didn't come, I think he figured it would just be another time that he couldn't feel him or that he would stop. So, I let it be. But, then I started to see our baby kick all over the place for a couple of minutes! I hurried and called out to James, and he came that time! He laid his hand on my tummy, but he didn't feel the next kick, so he took his hand away from my belly, and then all of a sudden, he saw it too! That made him want to stick around a while longer, LOL, so he put his hand back on my belly and what do you know...........Braden kicked daddy's hand! Yaaaayyyy!!!!!!!!!!!! James was amazed he took his hand off again, and we just sat there staring at my tummy for another couple of minutes at the little kicks we continued to see! That moment was everything I had ever hoped for! It made both of our days! And, I just couldn't stop thanking our sweet and precious Lord for giving us this awesome gift and experience!

That is so much fun! You should both be able to feel him non-stop from here on out.
