Pregnancy Files: {The Bump Week 21}

Best moment this week: This week I have felt Aiden move more than any other week and it is one of the coolest things I've ever experienced. The best moment by far this week was on Father's day. I had been trying for a few days to get Drew to feel Aiden kicking with no luck, but Sunday night we were sitting on the couch and he started kicking and Drew actually felt it. I love that Aiden gave us that gift especially for Drew on Father's day. The next 15 minutes we simply stared at my stomach in amazement. There is a human being inside of me...I just can't get over that.

Food cravings: Watermelon...mmmmmm.

Movement: I am starting to see movements on the outside of my belly. So surreal.

Symptoms: I have had the strangest and most realistic dreams this week.

Nursery: The furniture is stripped and stained thanks to my amazing husband who has persevered through learning the in's and out's of stripping old furniture. It has been quite the task, but we are so excited about how it turned out! Next up...painting the nursery!

Prayer for Baby:
Dear Aiden,
I love being able to call you by your name. It has been so amazing and a little weird feeling you slosh around inside me. You tend to be most active in the evening...are you going to be a night owl? This week was Father's day and I got your Dad an outfit for you that says me+daddy=love. I am already looking forward to seeing the bond you two will share.
Love,
Your Mama

Dear Lord,
Thank you for Aiden. Thank you for his continued health. Thank you for the gift of Fathers. Thank you for the one you gave to me, and the one you have given to Aiden. I have loved watching Drew work so hard this week on things for the nursery and I thank you in advance for allowing him to be Aiden's Dad and my husband. Amen.

Starting on the nursery is such a fun time! I'll never forget those baby kicks, they're the strangest and best feeling ever! Our favorite thing to do when I was 30+ weeks pregnant was to lay in bed at night and watch my stomach move. It was so crazy to see those movements!
