He's kicking right now, as I type.

I am really hoping I can get pictures posted here soon. We've been good about taking the pictures. We have not been good, however, with uploading them.

This week has not been the best, clearly. With my aunt's passing on Monday and the overload of work in my office, I'm weary, to say the least. At least my part-time instructor gig at the university is over for the summer. Having only one job feels...strange.

He's still kick, kick, kicking away.

Joey took me to McDonald's on the way home from work (we're sharing a car right now) so I could get an ice cream cone. He ordered me a large one. Ice cream headache aside, it was satisfying. I think I deserved it after a long day at work. And I think my dear son likes it too, judging from his activity in the past hour.

I relish these moments, the ones in which I can feel him moving around. I can't quite wrap my brain around the fact that I have a little person inside me, a person who will be in my arms in 5 months. It's surreal. When he kicks, it makes it more real. The ways in which he has already affected me...
