According to our latest info email from babycenter, the weight of our child "isn't much more than an average rutabaga." That's comforting to know that a little rutabaga is what is kicking me from Kristen's belly! :) I am not even sure what a rutabaga is actually. Couldn't they have used a coconut or cucumber or something that maybe I would have an idea what it is! How do they expect us dads to figure this stuff out when they use cryptic vegetables to compare our child to (it is a vegetable right?)

Anyway, to a more serious topic. Kristen and I have our next appointment today. We were hoping to have it when Kristen's parents were in town so they could join us but the doctor is going to be out of town the rest of the week and we had to move the originally scheduled appointment to today. That's kind of a bummer. I will try to get an update later today on how the appointment went. Kristen has to drink a bottle of orange slice (or that's what it looks like anyway) and they will do some tests on her later. I try to keep up with the names of these tests but can't do a real good job.

The baby seems to like church. That's where I first felt her kick and then yesterday she was playing. I felt her kick and pushed back (no, not too hard) and she would kick again about an inch away. That went on for a few kicks. I think I wore her out. She was kicking hard too. Kristen says she is going to be a soccer player. I am thinking more like a kick-boxer.
