Tiny Kicks and a Couple Steps and a Fall

I cannot confirm this, but I believe I have felt the official flutter of "Large Onion" and this time I am quite sure that it wasn't gas. With Aidan, there was no question. He kicked me hard. I was on the phone with my mom and he kicked me and really didn't stop till he came out. But with this one, it's not as clear. It could have been gas bubbles, but really I don't think so. I think it was flutters. Cute cute cute baby flutters!! And while Poops still isn't officially walking yet, he did cross the living room on his two very wobbly legs to me today!! He gets too excited and basically ends up tripping over himself usually, but he made it this time! And I burst into tears and hugged him so hard! And turned to joyous husband and said "Happy Father's Day!" How fitting.

Thursday night, however, was a heartbreaker. Husband and I went out to get him some new clothes and we got a phone call from my mother-in-law who was watching Poops. Now, she never calls us while we're out so we both knew something was up as soon as her number popped up. She called to report that Poops had a fall, face-first onto the fireplace hearth. His first big fall and his first shiner. Right under the eye. It could have been so much worse and of course, for that I am thankful that it is what it is and it's already healing nicely. But every time I look at it, that shiner calls out to me, tauntingly, wagging its little shiner finger in my face, saying "Bad mommy! You didn't order that fireplace cover yet! Bad, bad mom!" Ugh. Poor Poops. My heart hurts just thinking about it.

In other, very exciting news, sod is now going in Wednesday, the same day of my next doctor's visit and the first butt shot. So, I get a shot in the tuckus and by the time I get home, I'll have a lawn! Bonus! I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day weekend! We sure did around here! This year was golf year for husband (last year was bbq year--I don't know what I'm doing hitting the two big guns so early! I'm in trouble for next year!!). Anyway, he got lots of golf stuff and played a round of golf and we had lots of family time and yummy food. Happy Father's Day!

Woohoo let the kicking begin. Now get out there and order that fireplace cover!

Our last yard we had sod put in - fully installed - was the best thing we ever did. You'll love it!

Flutters-so exciting!

And so happy for your new yard. We're in the middle of some much needed home repairs and "sprucing up", and I know how much better those things make a person feel. :)
