the cutest thing!

as i was getting the boys to bed tonight, peanut was bouncing off the walls of my uterus. i got pooks settled down in the pack n play; and bubba situated in my bed. i laid down with him and we started watching the olympics. well we had been laying there for a bit when peanut started kicking over and over again in the same spot on my left side. so i took bubba's little hand, placed it on my belly, and told him to listen. (when you tell him to listen he sits freakishly still).

within seconds peanut kicked his hand. bubba's eyes got SO big. he just looked at me. then peanut kicked him again. he grinned and his big brown eyes were just so expressive. he said ''" and pointed to the palm of his hand. i asked him "did the baby kick your hand?" and he just grinned and said ''uh huh!" and placed his little hand right back on my belly. he felt peanut 2 more times before the baby shifted and we could no longer feel him. both times his eyes would get so big and he'd go ''huh?". i wish i could have got a picture of his expression. it was priceless! he was so excited, his little eyes were so expressive and its like he finally ''got it''. he knows there is a baby there, no doubt about it now!

after a few minutes he rolled over and faced the other way. just as i thought he was settling down, he throws his little arm over his side and just his four fingers rested on the edge of my belly. he didn't roll over, he didn't say anything---just his little fingers waiting.

it was adorable. i was seriously tearing up.

the little tiny moments that you can't plan, are truly the best!
