I've been trying to capture her antics on video for weeks, but maybe my "she wants to be a performer like her auntie" theory is false, because every time I turn on the camera, she stops moving. She'll basically be punching holes in my stomach all day but as soon as I turn on that camera, all of a sudden it's naptime. Maybe it's stage fright? Maybe she's just kind of a brat already? It's hard to say.
The joke's on her, though, because I am no longer working so I have nothing to do all day except sit around with the camera aimed at her, waiting for some action. On Tuesday, I was finally able to capture some of her movements on film. Granted, as soon as I would turn the camera off she would basically do cartwheels, so what you see is not the best she's got. But hey, I got her!
I can't believe I'm about to post video evidence of my bare belly on the internet, but I figured some of you (hi, family!) might get a "kick" out of seeing this (pun totally intended). And at least it's the top part of my belly that has been spared any stretch marks (so far, at least). You're welcome for that kindness.
Without further ado, I present to you just under a minute's worth of what my day is like with Baby Girl in my belly:
VIDEO: Baby Girl moving in my belly!
(No need to adjust your volume, there's no sound in this video.)
I do love that little fidget to bits already. I can't wait for her to get here so I can see what all these bumps and rolls translate to when she's on the outside!
