This week I was sitting in a meeting here at Le Top when suddenly I felt something different! Was it just a gas bubble in my tummy or was it the baby moving?! Well it is safe to say at 4.5 months along, it was definitely the baby moving!

Daddy tickled her again, then the baby kicked me once again. Every time Miranda laughed or squealed, the baby kicked me. It was so cute!
