Week 21 A couple of days ago, I had my first real interation with Buddha. Just about every night since Claire first felt the baby move, I put my hand on her belly and wait for him to kick. Usually, Claire tells me when he is kicking and I place my hand there. Sometimes I feel him kick and other times I don’t. A few days ago I decided I was going to take matters in my own hands. I didn’t want to wait for Claire to feel him kick. So, I got real close to her belly and spoke through my hand like a megaphone… “Daddy to Buddha.. Come in please.” Sure enough he kicked my hand. “Say again Buddha. Over.” Another kick. This went on for a couple of minutes with him kicking back after I said something. It was one of the coolest things to happen so far. Of course, this is nothing new for Claire. She feels Buddha moving around and kicking her all day and all night. But for me, it was an unreal experience.

Claire is in the 24th week of her pregnancy this week. Click here to see all the belly pictures.
