First kick

Today is the start of the 24th week, so we're almost in the third trimester. My wife is beautiful as ever and it's been fun to see her stomach getting bigger knowing that there is a little baby inside of her.

I felt my first kick on Monday night (May 2). It was so cool. Apparently Amy has been able to feel the baby moving around for a few weeks, but because the placenta is in the front there haven't been audible kicks to feel. I've had my hand on her stomach nonstop for a few weeks now, it seems, waiting to get one. Finally on Monday night while we were getting ready to go to sleep, I felt a little push against my hand. It wasn't very strong, but it was noticeable. And really cool.

Everything looked good at the 20-week ultrasound too. Got a 3D picture and it was pretty amazing.

Amy was laughing hard because she said I look like that when I sleep. I thought she was kidding, but then that night she took a picture of me sleeping. It's really weird: facial expression, hands near my head when I sleep .... this kid is a chip off the old block.
