Happy Grandparents Day!

Today is Grandparents Day! Happy day to all the grandparents and expected grandparents out there. :-) I wanted to share that (soon to be) Grandpa O'Brien got a special gift from little man today. He got a good swift kick to the hand! Nic and I have been clearing out the nursery and talking about the things that will be changing in there and what we will be doing with the furniture. Since we have 3 nice oak pieces that we would like to spruce up, I took a timeout to do a little research on stain colors. Of course my dad (soon to be grandpa) was flipping between golf, tennis and football. Very typical. While I was pecking away at the computer, little man started tapping at me. Nic has felt it many times and grandpa hasn't. I called him over and put his hand where I felt the most recent kicks. He felt a few small ones and told me he was going to camp out a while with his hand on my tummy. I smiled and said "go for it!" Just as I said that, the dude kicked. Boy did he kick hard! It made us both laugh. He gave us a few more small pokes and then changed positions on us. Grandpa was very excited that he finally felt a kick and smiled even bigger when I told him that it's grandparents day.

Have a wonderful day! I hope your grand kids make you smile today!

Don't worry Gigi! Gary and Diane haven't felt the little many either. I'm amazed at what a difference a month made in his activity. Now, I feel him all day long, no matter what I'm doing. I love feeling him kick when I'm at work. It always brightens my day. :-D
