"There it goes again!"

Junior is getting restless.

In a little under a week the little tyke is starting to move around a lot more than previously. Kicking, shifting, moving around, etc. It's almost like Junior has decided that since we had a peek there needs to be some sort of floorshow nightly.

This leads to evenings like tonight:

"There it is."

"There it is again."

"Oh. There it is."

"There it goes again."

It won't win an Oscar for best screenwriting. It's more like listening to someone who's just discovered they can do something weird but cool. Like rolling their tongue or hanging spoons off their nose.

I try to nod in appreciation but can honestly say that I will never know what it's going to be like. The closest I have to compare to what Fabulous Babe is talking about is the gas I get after eating a whole pizza by myself.

So I listen and smile. Sometimes I tease. Mostly I just sit here and think about how strange the changes must be that FB is going through.

Until recently the morning sickness and wretched misery of physical changes have hidden what has really been going on. As Junior grows that changes. Your fear of becoming attached to something that might not happen gradually falls to the wayside. Instead you begin to grow more and more attached to this untouchable object that you have a unique connection with.

You begin to love something that you have never seen but one day will.
