26 weeks {baby girl loves her dad}

picture taken at 26 weeks 4 days
(No chalkboard this week. I almost forgot to even get a picture! Life is busy.)

I mentioned at week 23 that baby girl was supposed to be able to recognize our voices and I know she totally does! I think she could care less when she hears my voice since she has to listen to me all day long :) But she goes nuts when Eric is around! 
A couple weeks ago we were watching a movie when Eric came and laid next to me on the couch, and rested his head on my belly. She instantly started kicking his face :) She had such a steady rhythm going with her kicking that had Eric laughing after a few kicks. He turned his face so that his lips were against my belly and started talking to baby girl. She held still while he talked to her but as soon as he laid his head back down she'd start kicking him again! Then for whatever reason Eric moved his head down so that it was resting on the couch, and he started talking to baby girl through my side. It wasn't a big deal until she followed his voice and tried kicking her way through my side! I've never felt her in my side like that before and it was uncomfortable, ha ha. I told Eric to stop talking to her because I didn't like her being in my side. So he rested his head on top of my belly again and kept talking to her, and she followed his voice back to the center of my belly! She got a few more kicks in and then let us focus on watching the movie again :) For some reason that was one of the sweetest moments of this pregnancy! It was like she and Eric were playing a game with each other and it just melted my heart to watch my little family play together!
And anytime I spend a night or two away from Eric I notice that I don't feel as much movement from baby girl. But as soon as I get home to Eric, she goes crazy and won't stop moving :) He is the only one that can get her to move/respond on demand and it's just amazing. I totally believe that she loves her daddy SO much already :)

That's so sweet! My baby girl did the same thing for her father, but not as much.
I guess I haven't been to your blog in forever (I started a new blog and am just getting around to re-subscribing to blogs on my new account) because this is the first time I read about your pregnancy. Congratulations!
