The PERFECT birthday present

We celebrated my 26th birthday with family and friends (really our fantasy football league) on Sunday September 11th....which was the season opener for our Indianapolis Colts. Ummm....I don't think I need to remind anyone of the results. However, it was still a great day because our little boy already gave us the best birthday present a mom could ask for...

Earlier that day, we were sitting in church. Up to this point, I was the only one who had been able to feel the baby move. However, sitting there in church I think he was moved by the Holy Spirit or something because all of a sudden he started kicking really hard- not just a flutter. So I quickly grabbed Ryan's hand and placed it on my belly where I was feeling the kicks. And there on my birthday, Daddy was able to feel his son move for the first time!

Really I didn't feel another kick like that for another two weeks- so I know that was his birthday present for me. Now creeping up on 23 weeks, he is never shy. I get kicked all the the point where sometimes I jump. He is so active. There is no question that he is going to be an athlete!

Here are some belly pics from 22 weeks. He's measuring great and well I'm growing too...

These past few weeks have been my best yet during this entire pregnancy. I feel better, I feel like I look better (partially due to the miracle of self-tanner) and I truly have been feeling so joyous about the baby, life and my career. Things really are looking up in the Robinson household. I really could not have done any of this though without Ryan. His love and support through this entire journey have exceeded my greatest expectations. I have no doubt that our son is going to grow up to be such a wonderful man because of the influence of his Daddy.
