Kinsey the Sweetheart

The great thing about this pregnancy is how excited Kinsey is about it. She is absolutely loving talking about the baby and praying for him. Every night, she has to give Sheryl a hug and kiss and every night she goes down to Sheryl's abdomen and talks a little bit to him and then gives it a kiss.

Last night, I put her to bed and Sheryl was downstairs. Just after we had turned out the light, Sheryl calls me to the stairs and says that the baby is moving and wants to know if Kinsey wants to feel him. I barely get the words out of my mouth and Kinsey jumps out of bed and runs down the stairs like someone had just told her that Santa had come. She climbs up into the chair and leans down to watch Sheryl's abdomen intently. She talks to it and rubs her hand on it.

Unfortunately, he didn't move for her. I've felt him a couple of times and I know she will too eventually. But she is so excited for him to get here that she bought a Baby Einstein cow for him with her own money the other day. She's going to be a great big sister to Connor.

Yes, we have decided on the name. It will be John Connor Wilson and he will be called Connor. We're glad to have a name and put to rest...that other name.

Great name! (Not that you needed our approval. :)) I will try really, really hard not to call him...that other thing... Such great stories about Kinsey.

Great name! And that's so sweet about Kinsey. I bet her face will light up like crazy when she does actually get to feel her little baby brother kick!

Are you naming him after the kid in the Terminator?

Regardless,it's still cool!

That's fantastic that your little girl is so excited
