Is he gonna be a Ninja?

Last night I felt Jr. kick for the first time. There have been little movements up until now but it's been hard to distinguish between Lulu's heartbeat and twitches, and the acts of the little monster inside. But last night, we got into bed and baby came alive. I placed my hand on Lulu's belly and got a good swift attack. Every one of these little firsts, hearing the heart beat for the first time, seeing the baby on the ultrasounds for the first time and feeling Jr.'s kick for the first time just amaze me. It's hard to fully realize that we are going to have a child in a few short months, but these little things help mentally prepare me. Thanks baby for reminding me you're coming.
