B is finally home! I am so happy. The look on his face was priceless when he saw my belly. He kept rubbing it and staring at it all night. He felt her move a few hours after he got home. It was amazing! She didn't move for him right away (I think he thought she might move on command :) ) But after we ate dinner she started her usual gymnastics and he was able to feel and see the movement.
He has already put together the crib and bookshelf - although both are still in our basement. This weekend is my baby shower and our parents will all be staying with us...in our very small house. We decided to wait on dismantling our second extra bedroom and turning it into the nursery until after this weekend.
I can't tell you how happy and relieved I am that he is home!
Thanks again for your support and words of encouragement during his deployment.
