24 Weeks and Kicking Up a Storm!!!

Another VERY special milestone happened at 5:00 am this morning. Wes was able to feel Tucker kick!!!! Believe me, this is something he has been looking forward to for the pass 24 weeks now! I've been feeling Tucker move since 16 weeks, but it hasn't been strong enough where Wes could put his hand on my belly and feel his SON move around inside. That is, until NOW!!!

This morning, Tucker woke me up at 5:00 am. He was wide awake and boy was he kicking! I put my hand on my stomach and almost immediately I felt him kick. I woke Wes up right way and instructed him to put his hand on my stomach. Like I said, this is a moment Daddy has been waiting for, so he complied, right out of a dead sleep, no questions asked. Almost right away Tucker kicked again. Wes felt it and was so excited! We laid in bed for the next 20 to 30 minutes, feeling Tucker kick together. It was so perfect, just the 3 of us! I couldn't help but just feel we were the only ones in the world awake (yes, I know, there are people that are awake at 5:00 am every morning, but let me have my moment, okay?), and it was just the three of us, a FAMILY of 3! (Of course, we could hear the girls heavy breathing as they slept which reminded us that it's actually the 5 of us!) I swear I could feel God smiling down on us as our hearts thanked him over and over for the gift of Tucker!

That is so lovely that you can share your babies experience with everyone while he is growing in your tummy. It shows you that GOD blesses all of us all the time. YOu and Wes enjoy these precious moments!! So excited for you.
