Unforgettable moments on a casual Saturday

A super casual and normal Saturday,
turned out to be the day I felt the happiest I’ve ever felt in my entire life…..

Kyle and I woke up early Saturday morning and drove across town to pick up a couch that my amazing parents decided to give us! We’ve had Kyle’s old leather “college couch” our entire marriage,
and Lord have mercy, it was TIME for a new(ish) couch.

We picked the couch up {as well as some breakfast tacos}, spent some time with my parents and then headed back home! I’m currently in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and everyone always talks about this “insane amount of energy” the 2nd trimester brings, and unfortunately, I haven’t witnessed that yet. Yes, I do feel GREAT, and have way more energy than I did the 1st trimester…
But if I stand too long or do too much my body is NOT happy.
Needless to say, I needed to relax once we got home because I knew we had plans with Kyle’s family that afternoon!
Baby boy has been kicking up a storm lately and I always feel him most when i’m resting.
I’ve tried to get Kyle to feel him countless times but he is never able too.
I can feel him kick on the outside sometimes but Kyle never can, so I figured maybe I can only feel him on the outside because I feel him on the inside also…if that make sense?

Anyways, Kyle and I headed to his grandparents around 2pm to be with the family and celebrate his Papas 80th birthday!
After dinner baby boy was going NUTS in my tummy. I was sitting on the couch and Kyle’s little sister Michelle was right next to me, so of course she put her hand on my tummy just to see if she could feel anything….
I’m so used to him kicking and Kyle not reacting because he can’t feel it, so when he kicked and Michelle turned to me with her mouth wide open, I just about lost it!!
It took about everything in me not to cry.
Of course we grabbed Kyle and had him put his hand on my tummy so he could feel,
but still…nothing.
Which was so frustrating, I just wanted him to feel our baby.

Fast forward a few hours and we finally made it home.
It was about 10pm and I laid on my back on the couch,
and said “alright babe, let’s try this again, he’s kicking!”
Kyle put his hand on my tummy and we waited a few seconds,
then all of the sudden baby kicked super hard…
Kyle’s eyes widened, he had a huge smile on his face,
“I FELT THAT!” he said.
I immediately started giggling uncontrollably from happiness,
and then baby boy kept kicking super hard over and over and over,
and Kyle kept saying, “I felt that!! I felt that too!!!”
I honestly can’t even describe the feeling of emotions that came over me in that moment.
I was giggling like a kid and crying, and smiling SO big it hurt.
I’ve never experienced such pure joy in my entire life.
It was the best moment, the sweetest moment, a moment that i’ll carry with me
for the rest of my life.
I’m so glad it happened when it was just us, I think the moment would’ve been a lot different if he had felt the baby when the entire family was around and there was just so much going on.
It was perfect.
Can’t wait for our appointment Thursday to see how much he’s grown!

    This is so sweet! Congratulations to you and Happy Birthday to your Papa! It’s amazing how sometimes waiting for the things you want can make the moment it happens all the more perfect. I’m so happy that it worked out the way it did! On a lighter note, where did you get breakfast tacos at? Those sound amazing!

    Aww this brought tears to my eyes! I still remember my husband feeling our first child kick for the first time. It is the most amazing experience! It is still just as special with the second child, but there is just something so magical when you experience for this first time ever. I am so excited for you!

    What a sweet moment! I can only imagine how much joy you both must feel knowing you can feel your child together like that. 🙂

    I remember when I was pregnant with my now 4 year old and I had been trying to get her dad to feel her kick. We were at the movie theater when it happened. Everything around us stopped and the look on his face was so priceless. Even though we have gone our separate ways I will never forget and cherish that moment! Definitely such an amazing experience!
