22 Weeks- THE KICK!

I FELT JACKSON KICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't describe how excited I was laying in my bed at 6 am yesterday morning.  I felt what felt like a kick, but I couldn't be sure, because I thought, "Hey, it's 6o'clock in the morning, and maybe I'm delirious...?" Ha ha. But then I was sure I felt it AGAIN.  And then, to totally reassure me, he did it again last night when Brock and I were laying on our couch watching t.v.  I said, "Sweetie! Sweetie! Feel!"  So he put his hand on my belly, and sure enough he felt it too! I wasn't crazy after all!  It was the most amazing feeling in the whole world!  Now I hope he does it all the time!  I love the reassurance of knowing he is safe & sound in my belly.

Jackson is now the size of a spaghetti squash, which Brock thinks is funny because he loves spaghetti squash.  That is pretty big; no wonder I can feel him in there! Oh, and he weighs about 1 pound.  :) That is crazy to me, because I think my twin brother and sister only weighed about 4 pounds when they were born.  He even has tiny tooth buds now-Wow!

Everyone keeps giving us the most adorable baby clothes!  He is going to be one stylin' baby I tell you what!  This past weekend my mom couldn't resist, and gave us a new camouflage onesie that has a little fuzzy moose on it.  It says, "Wild About Grandma!" So adorable!  And Darla (my second mom) said she had to give us a few outfits, so that it would give her an excuse to go buy more :)  She gave us the cutest little snuggie I ever saw!  It's one of those footless onesie things that is so snuggly and soft.  I just wanted to hug it!  She also got us a camo outfit she got from Sturgis, that has a little matching visor, and a onesie that says, "I love my mom!"  Jackson is going to look like his dad the second he comes into this world.  He already has 3 camo outfits!  One from my Brock's mom that she got at Cabela's (it's the real deal, Mossy Oak and all!), and then the two from our other moms :)

We got the crib all set up, and it looks amazing! Even better than I expected it would.  The nursery is coming together nicely.  Its still got a long ways to go, but I'm liking how it looks so far.
