Justin Beiber made me cry
Friday afternoon David and I were tackling a rather larger pile of dishes and I decided I needed a little music to help get the job done. What did I pick?... Justin Beiber, "Baby." Feel free to laugh -- but just remember that I have a pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-teen inside of me and she is the one that picked the song. Well before I knew it, dishes were not being done, but instead a ridiculous mom & belly dance incurred. Please take a minute here to picture me in my kitchen, hands on my belly, swaying side to side, shaking my booty, and doing all sorts of crazy awesome dance moves. I actually worked up a pretty good aerobic heart rate! Well sometime between my jazz moves and my disco moves, my eyes began to well up a bit as I imagined dancing with Magnolia in a couple years -- instead of holding my belly, holding both her little hands and just jumping and swinging around together to the newest teeny-bopper song (or by that time, maybe a retro-beiber song).
When we first got pregnant, this was one of the first visions/daydreams I had about our little baby -- and why I really think deep down I knew what I would be having. I'm so excited to meet our little one face to face, to hold her hands in mine, to dance and be silly together, kiss her little nose... 4 months seems so far away (and yet not long enough).
My belly is definitely a noticeable pregnancy bump now. People are no longer shy about it (as in, "Is it a baby or have you just gained weight?") they just come right out and ask when I'm due. Or, even better -- I got my first free cup of yogurt goodness at Sweet CiCi's on Saturday... I didn't even have to say, "hey i'm with child," they just gave it to me! (p.s. if you didn't know -- buy one get one free at Sweet CeCe's if you are preggers!) Also this weekend, Magnolia has really begun to kick. All day yesterday she was just dancing around in there. Hubby got to feel her a lot plus my high school bible study girls all got to feel her too. Loving it!
