19 and 20 Weeks

Her senses, now developed, lead me to quiet moments, all alone, just the two of us, so I can sing to her. We are so eager to kiss her little fingers and toes, to play with her, to just simply love her.
She constantly reminds me that she is around...tapping my belly at my desk, fluttering around my tummy after a workout, kicking me swiftly if I accidentally roll over on my stomach when I sleep. I love being aware of her, knowing she is there.
Finally we know that she is actually a she and we are feeling so blessed. Already, she goes by Olivia and it seems to suit her so perfectly. She has turned her parents into a blubbering mess in the best possible sense. We love her already.
