Baby Mine

Funny how you get to know your baby before they come. I've been told about "the connection" and "the bond." But, other than how he looks- I feel like I really know him. I know that from 10:45AM to 12:15Noon he does his aerobics. Jumping jacks, somersaults, chin ups, the whole deal. I know he rests after his workout until 5:30PM when he gets up and lounges around the womb and plays imaginary paddle ball I am guessing. Lots of punches. Then from 10:30 to Midnight he is at it again. Going, going, going. Throughout the rest of the day it's a little kick here, a punch in the gut there, and a step on my bladder just to tell me he loves me.
I also think he can hear and understand our voices. (probably not true.) But he'll be moving like a maniac and as soon as he hears someone say "Can I feel him?" He goes stiff as a board. What a knuckle butt.
We've been talking baby names and love the name Kole. It means. "Victory for the People." That makes me love the name even more. This baby is my victory. The summation of my life, trails, and blessings are in this baby. It's a victory for me. He ought to be named Kole.

I love that name Kole for your baby. It fits your family so well.

My babies were the same way-they'd be moving like crazy, but as soon as someone put their hand on my belly, it was like I had a statue in there.

LOVE the name Kole.

I love the name Kole, and I love that it embodies what a victory this pregnancy is for you - that you were able to get pregnant with him, despite all odds. Very cool. That is so hilarious - babies always pick the worst times to dance on your bladder. I wish they slept when we sleep. I swear, swear, swear that I felt this baby today. It was exciting. Dylan always would stomp on my bladder when I was in the middle of teaching. It was funny. And he would kick my ribs when I was on my long commute to and from work.

I like the name you have chosen. When you have a name I think it becomes even more real! Don't you love feeling him move. After delivering him you will miss all of those movements! Isn't it such a miracle...the whole baby process? I think it is amazing! P.S. We haven't forgotten about you for nachos. I will call you soon! I think I have your phone number!?

Good for you that you have a name. We are struggling for a boy name. We settled on one, and are satisfied, but it isn't one we LOVE. I like when the meaning of the name is profound, like Kole's is.

I Love the name Kole!! And it is a very fitting name with victory as the meaning! My boys have always been busy little guys even before they were born!! It does get very inconvenient the times they choose to be active:P

Kole, I really like it! It almost made me tear up when you told me the meaning and the name fits perfect! He sounds like a mover. I haven't even seen you with your belly. I hope that the next time I see you, you're still pregnant. :)
