somersaults and handsprings

Well, not by me anyway. Well, OK also (metaphorically) by me.

The Bean is on the move, I felt a distinct somersaulty move in the belly yesterday and the Husband even got to feel it too. Even with a growing belly and shrinking clothes the whole pregnant thing has felt kind of surreal for me. It's a feeling I'm used to, I felt the same way when I was carrying the Peanut. Listening to the Heartbeat, seeing the Bean in the ultrasound and experiencing the quickening (a term which always makes me think of The Highlander movie) makes it feel a little more real.

In other news (and this is where the metaphorical handsprings come in). After years and years of being out here all by our lonesome (you know, with only good friends for company) we finally have family living close by. My sister has moved out here to run an insurance agency. In addition to my sister, we have my niece and her boyfriend living here now too.
