I think Shem is slowing beginning to feel that this baby is real. After our ultrasound he was quiet and I assumed that he was processing the whole experience and realizing for one of the first times that we really are having a baby. It made me happy when on our way home he made a joke about me carrying a baby boy and today while we cuddled before getting out of bed he felt the baby move when his hand was on my belly. I hope that he begins to feel more connected as the baby grows. He's going to be a great father and I'm sure once our little one is here it will be one of his happiest moments.
I really want to remember this special moments with baby before he is born! Sometimes I feel like he moves more when we talk about something specific or, like this morning, when Shem was waiting to feel him move. After our ultrasound he was moving like crazy and I think he was excited to know that we knew that he was a boy. But that's just my assumption. :) He and I are already making a great team since from the beginning I had a feeling that he was a boy. Last Sunday during church that feeling was even stronger. Is it possible for there to be a special motherly connection between baby and mama? I'm thinking yes because of what I've felt so far...I love it!
Okay, this post has been much longer than anticipated, but what do you think we should name him? I'd like his middle name to be Jeffery after his Grandpa Thompson since he's already passed away, so it has to sound nice with Jeffery.
