Little Merlin is moving around on a pretty regular schedule lately. He’s almost always awake and active between 7:00 and 9:00 pm. Last night we were cuddled up on the couch around that time. I had my hand on Andrea’s belly waiting for the light flutters under my palm. I took my eyes off the tv for a second and actually focused on her belly when I saw what looked like a golf ball trying to come out of Andrea’s stomach. I laughed and yelled at Andrea to look at her belly. Just a few seconds later we saw the same bump rise up again. I wanted to see more, but he got quiet. Was that his knee? His foot? His elbow? I like to think he was waving at us.
This was the first time we have actually seen him moving around. It really brought home the fact that a little human is actually in Andrea and ready to come out in a few months.
Totally fascinating. Also a little bizarre.
