Bigger by the day...

I officially have quite the belly now... I'm almost 35 weeks along and I can't really imagine Rowan (and I) will continue to grow for another month (or more)!! Its getting interesting! We're definitely in "nesting" mode these days... getting organized. We can't wait to see his little face!

first hiccups

So, I woke up early this morning to what felt like little rhythmic kicks in my lower abdomen. I knew this is where Rowan's head and arms are so I was really curious as to why he was punching me in rhythm.... I then felt for his back (he is really easy for me to feel as I am totally carrying out front) which was also moving in rhythm... hmm. I got a little worried/confused... until I realized... could he have hiccups?! Apparently its actually a really common thing for babies to have hiccups in the womb... how cute is that... little baby hiccups?! I can't wait to actually see him hiccup and not just feel it!

I can hear his heartbeat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time he smiles
And when I come to him that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to him like a river's song

He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He's got a fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
And when I come to him when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like a thief

Yes I need him in the daytime
Yes I need him in the night
Yes I want to throw my arms around him
Kiss him hug him kiss him hug him tight

And when I'm returning from so far away
He gives me some sweet lovin' brighten up my day
Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me feel whole
Yes it makes me mellow down in to my soul

He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
