Defending Momma

At night, Nickel and I like to kid around and act like we're fighting and tease about who kicks the most and snores the loudest. Well, tonight he was talkin some smack so I grabbed his hand and put it on my belly and told Mr Man (I'm trying out nicknames so bare with me until I come up with just the right one) to kick his daddy. Like a good boy he did just as he was told! Nickel said he just barely felt it, but my whole stomach moved so I'm starting to wonder about his sense of touch.

Peanut never kicked her daddy. Never, ever. Well, at least not while I was pregnant. All those long months I got kicked in the bladder and ribs and he never felt her move, he might have seen her move once or twice towards the end, but everytime he entered the room she'd calm down, he'd put his hand on my belly at night, she'd go to sleep. I even tried putting my belly up to his back at night and she wouldn't kick him! Such a daddy's girl. But my boy, now he loves his momma and ain't no one, not even daddy gonna get away with talkin smack about his momma!

Peanut on turning 8

So Saturday morning I'm standing in my mother's bathroom drying Peanut's hair. She looks at my belly and says without missing a beat:

"Daniel, this is your sister, Peanut. I'm eight years old. And I'm prettier then you!"

I have finally reached the halfway mark! Here's just a little update on our progress

Morning sickness- gone

Tiredness- still here, but I am finally able to stay awake until 9 pm again!

Belly- Getting bigger, but not too fast
Baby- Kickin around and giving the nurses a hard time

Peanut- Happy and mostly waiting patiently

Daddy- Still alive!


My job is good. There's things I don't like that are beyond my control so I try not to dwell on them. Instead I focus on the positives. Last week they came to me and told me that on March 17th I will be part-time instead of full time. The package they gave me was very generous and I jumped on it. I will only be working 5 hours a day, have time to watch my soaps and pick Peanut up from school. Life is good.

Hope yours is too!
