It’s probably just a fluke. Or a response to the fact that I’m reading Small Fry a book or singing her to sleep. But whenever we lie down together and snuggle up, the baby starts wiggling like crazy.
Usually Small Fry has her little legs tucked up against my belly, and when she feels those movements, she always shrieks with joy, yanks up my shirt and scooches down to put her hand on my belly.
It’s awesome. And I’m going to miss it.
I always tell Small Fry, “baby knows you’re nearby and loves you so much,” which delights her. She’s been talking to my belly for quite a while, and this little bedtime ritual seems to be creating a bond between the two.
Two. Two kids.
I cannot wait for them to meet.
