In the last couple of weeks, I have been reminded of how that wonderful husband of mine is already a hands-on amazing dad even though he can't see his child yet. We put the crib together this weekend and this morning, I walked out of our bedroom to find him just standing in the nursery gazing at that crib. He has also wanted to be hands-on in all areas of this pregnancy and like so many soon-to-be fathers, he is very curious about the mysteries of what it feels like to be kicked by the baby. I have had a hard time trying to explain it to him in a way he can understand but several nights ago, he found his own way to relate… We were making pizza and I was preparing the dough in the breadmaker. As the dough was spinning around inside the breadmaker, he picked up the machine and held it to his stomach and asked… “is this what it feels like when “Ziggy” kicks?” J I had never thought of putting it that way, but I suppose in a way, it would feel a little like that. I just love the fact that he’s trying to relate.
