Today Blue and I each felt our girls kicking for the first time from the outside. And in an instant of giggly surprise, weeks of aching hips and sore back and tiredness all faded substantially into a much more cheerful perspective. My children are in there. They are growing and healthy and we can feel them. Even see them push and bump against my skin. Somehow this is even more important than when I began to feel them weeks ago from the inside. This is tangible, and it can be shared. It is magical and thrilling. I am content.
