I also noticed that 2 of these posts refer to being pregnant with P. One of which I read and it made me laugh- because knowing her as I do now, I can see how those initial interactions with her was part of her personality.
Here's the then and now of it:
When someone is talking in a mean
tone, or loudly, or maybe Spud just doesn't like them,
Spud hides under my right rib. Whole body.
It's fun to feel Spud fold up on one side.
Yup. P is not a fan of loud noises and yelling or when certain people talk. While she no longer folds up under a rib, her eyes get really big and she runs to me or dad. It's funny.
Movement: Lots. I can tell when it's a hand wave, a kick, or when
Spud pedals along my stomach.
The key here is the "pedals along my stomach". When P gets excited, she does something we like to call 'happy feet'. It's like a little baby tap dance or an in-place run. Also humorous. Apparently she's been doing it for a long time.
This makes me glad I took the advice of my awesome Sister in Law(s). I think I'll record this again- in a few weeks.
