Kickin' like Bruce Lee

After a couple of weeks of false alarms, when Christina could feel the baby moving and kicking but I couldn't, I finally felt him kick. Very cool. Borrowing a turn of phrase that seems to be popular in scientific papers, I think that it's fair to say that "this evidence, taken together with earlier pictorial evidence, argues convincingly for the presence of another human being inside Christina".

That said, I still think the whole person-living-inside-another-person bit is ... strange.
It's one thing to know about the process in an abstract sort of "Oh, yeah, babies grow inside their mother's womb" way, but observing it on a daily basis definitely brings home the reality.

Let's just hope, for mamma's sake, he can't kick nearly as hard as you! (yet)

Congrats - that's fun!
