100 Followers and Baby Pokes

I hit 100 followers today- how amazing!  I remember when I started this blog 5 months ago I didn't even know what a follower was or that I would "meet" so many awesome and supportive women.  I just thought I was writing a blog to keep track of things for myself and to keep family informed while we were going through IVF.  It has become so much more than that.

So, thank you to all of my followers who keep reading and supporting me, I appreciate all of you!

Now in baby news...

Steve got home yesterday after the loooongest 3 day work trip ever.  It's so nice to have him home and baby girl couldn't agree more.  We were sitting on the couch after dinner (well, I was half laying and Steve was sitting) and he had his hand on my belly.  We were watching TV and I felt one of the "pokes" I've been feeling the past couple of weeks, Steve's head whips around to face me, his eyes were huge and he said, "What was that?!?!" I said- "You felt that!? I think that's her poking around!"  I will never forget the look on Steve's face, he was beyond happy feeling his daughter move for the first time.  Then he said, "You're never going to get my hand off your stomach now!" The rest of the night we sat there with his hand on my stomach and he felt her a couple more times, every time that same huge smile was plastered to his face ♥

Happy Friday everyone! I'll be in Chicago this weekend but I will try my hardest to keep up with your blogs!
