17 weeks

I woke up this morning to the feeling of non-stop constant baby movement in my belly. Yeah, very cute and all. But when it's 5am, and you hadn't planned on waking up for another two and a half hours, it can be quite annoying.
I am 17 weeks today, and I need to fix my ticker over there since it is a day off. I really can't believe I'm 17 weeks today. Only three short weeks away from being at my halfway point.
It seems like it was just a few days ago that I woke up on New Years Day, took a test, and hyperventilated. And it's been 17 weeks of my little man growing stronger and bigger every day. Every little movement makes me feel like I know him better. I can't wait until Mr. H can feel him squirming around. It's an awesome feeling.
Once he is here, I know I'll miss those moments where its just me and him, and no one else knows the connection we had already established long before he ever arrived.
