Peanut was particularly communicative this morning, and my wife was particularly sensitive, which created a rather fun morning. I made her an 8 am appointment for medication refills, which is rather early, but necessary so I didn’t miss much work. On the way, Peanut quickly discovered that momma was in the car with us! A new and exciting thing for mornings! And we were listening to Paramore, which I introduced her to yesterday on our drive. She isn’t able to direct her energy very specifically, just release lots of it in general, which actually pushed one of our energetic friends out of the car since it was unexpected. And my wife kept getting slammed, so she was clearly excited. To calm her down I rubbed my belly, but she was still moving a lot. When we got to the doctor we were in the middle of a song, and I turned the car off suddenly. My wife was slammed with this sense of utter disappointment, to the point of wanting to cry. This is so my child! I find it physically painful to turn off a song in the middle, assuming I was into it. She is not amused either! I promised we would start the song over when we got back to the car, and I try to turn music down instead of just off. It’s less harsh that way, for both of us.
As the appointment finished and we left, I noticed she once again was vertical, and once I again I have no clue how she got there! She can kick and punch while horizontal, but somehow she manages to get vertical like magic. I think she’s a ninja! I only notice once she’s there because the pressure is not in the middle of my abdomen and pushing out rather than on either side near my hips. I wish I could see her do it because it’s quite the mystery to me. She isn’t even pushing to get there, or pushing really at all since last week. Perhaps that was part of her learning process.
On the way to work I think she learned to headbang and we rocked out to Misery Business (live, from Final Riot). hahahahaha She certainly was moving up a storm. Thankfully that doesn’t hurt. I bet that changes eventually, but I enjoy it for now. After that cd was done I put on Evanescence, starting with Anywhere but Home. She continued with a lot of movement. At this point she’d been particularly active for going on 2 hours. She slept for a while this afternoon and just recently woke up. Quite an eventful day for this little one. And I loved it! Seriously, so much fun. I can’t wait another 3 1/2 months to meet her!
