32 Weeks: Mr. Personality

July 13, 2012


Our baby has not even come into the world yet, but we are already obsessively proud parents.

You know – those parents who are like “Baby just raised his arm! He’s so cute!” “Baby just burped! So cute!” I’m not being mean – babies are super duper cute doing everything they do! And our child is no exception:

He moves from one side of my stomach to another – he’s saying hi!

He kicks violently – he’s mad!

My stomach growls – he’s hungry!

A foot pokes out – he wants to play!

No movement – he’s taking a nap!

Sudden movement – he’s up from his nap to play!

He talks to us in a cute voice: Matt pokes him and he says “Stop it Daddy!” or it’s beyond dinnertime and he squeals “I’mmmm hungry!!!”).

From the outside, Matt and I have given him so much personality. We are already doing crazy parent things : ) I imagine it will only get worse when he’s here. But really, would you expect any less from a family who brings Bears to life?! (FYI, the Bears and the Baby have the same voice…)

Here’s a video clip – the best I’ve gotten so far because he does his best playing at nighttime when it’s too dark to film – of some afternoon playtime. A hard bone is right under my fingers!

[Of course he’s probably thinking “Stop poking me!!!” but I assume he’s playing back : ) ]

it’s so crazy how much my stomach used to contort when the baby moved around in there, especially toward the end. The other thing that we used to do is that Jon would place his ear on my stomach and actually hear the baby’s heartbeat


2 Ann July 13, 2012 at 9:23 am

I literally just squealed. How adorable is that, he’s totally playing with you?! Interesting there is some ‘give’ to your belly – for some reason I thought pregnant women’s bellies would be rock hard, haha

They are at times – but lying on my side makes it easy to relax my abs and make it more squishable – I can feel him better! This video is also about 3 weeks old : )

As soon as the Braxton Hicks contractions start, the tummy DEFINITELY gets rock hard! And the further along you go the harder and more uncomfortable it can get! I am 39 weeks today and its like having a round brick hanging low sometimes 🙂


5 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More July 13, 2012 at 9:30 am

Wow, that’s crazy to me!! And pretty adorable that you’re able to play with him while he’s still inside.


6 Michaela July 13, 2012 at 9:33 am

how cool is that?! so amazing!!! Surely he plays back 🙂
I cannot wait to be pregnant one day!


7 kall July 13, 2012 at 10:39 am

that video is amazing kath!


8 Jennifer July 13, 2012 at 11:29 am

Wow…he was playing with you. 🙂

I miss that feeling.

He has no idea what wonderful parents he has waiting for him. 🙂


9 Jourdan July 13, 2012 at 11:57 am

haha! so funny but we totally do the same thing 🙂 my favorite is when my hubby says bye to her in the morning, he will get down and talk to my belly and all of a sudden she wakes up and moves around! its too cute!


10 KERF July 13, 2012 at 12:01 pm

I could share a lot of (probably annoying) things we do already : )


11 Karen July 13, 2012 at 12:45 pm

My best friend is 34 weeks and we spent all last night “playing” with her future son as well. Seeing her belly move was so exciting, I burst into tears! Love little miracles
How exciting!!! What a fabulous time in your lives.. you and Matt deserve all the best in life!


12 Lindsay @ Lindsay's List July 13, 2012 at 3:15 pm

why did this almost make me cry?


13 Lindsey July 13, 2012 at 3:53 pm

WOW!! That’s incredible:) It brought tears to my eyes, so beautiful to see (also because i’m several weeks pregnant and so sensitive LOL)

I love following your blog, learning so much.
thank you

Awww! Of course I love having my little guy here, but pregnancy is just such an amazing time, knowing there’s a little human being inside your belly, growing and doing all sorts of things. Seeing that totally makes me miss being pregnant!


16 Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles July 13, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Too cool! I just started feeling the flutters this week…and we just found out we’re having a boy yesterday. Can’t wait for baby to start playing with us!

That was the sweetest video ever! It made me cry! I always wanted a houseful of kiddos, but was only able to have one. And that one is turning 30 this year! :'(

I absolutely love the way you’re documenting your pregnancy. What a beautiful gift to your little guy!! He will treasure it forever!


19 Stephanie July 13, 2012 at 6:50 pm

OMG! This is so amazing!!!! I can’t even imagine how exciting it is to feel that 🙂


20 Kelley July 13, 2012 at 7:35 pm

That’s awesome you got that on video! Two more months to go!


21 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles July 13, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Aw! He is totally playing with you and showing you so much love!!!!! 🙂
I do the same thing and my husband is always telling me ‘you’re poking at the little one!’ and the husband just doesn’t get that I’m playing with our little one!


22 Leila @ Spinach and Skittles July 14, 2012 at 12:21 am

Love the video! Each time I try to record my little one moving she stops, and then as soon as I stop recording she starts up again. We’ve had 4 anatomy scans because she won’t cooperate. I’m thinking my little girl is a tad camera shy, haha. She’ll have to get over it with a blogger mama 😉


23 KERF July 14, 2012 at 8:22 am

My guy likes to move at night, which is terrible for cameras. I’m hoping I can get another good video soon!


24 Liz July 14, 2012 at 4:29 am

Awwwww! So sweet 🙂 Did you get a new dslr that has video capability or do you shoot video with something else? I remember you saying you wanted to get a new one 😉


25 KERF July 14, 2012 at 8:21 am

I bought a Canon 5D recently – and the video is incredible!


26 Liz July 14, 2012 at 10:14 am

That’s awesome! The 5D is basically the best dSLR out there 😀


27 KERF July 14, 2012 at 10:23 am

I love it!! I found a great deal on Craigslist 🙂


28 Kelly July 15, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Is it the Canon 5D or the 5D Mark II?


29 KERF July 15, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Mark II


30 Juls July 14, 2012 at 7:20 am

Wow that gave me chills

Totally random question but I know you do a lot of research. I had negative pregnancy tests 8,9,10 dpo so ended up drinking a lot for a friends wedding the past two days and now have a positive test 11 dpo and feel terrible. The tests said accurate 6 days before a missed period so I thought I was in the clear. Is it true the baby doesn’t feed off you this early???


31 KERF July 14, 2012 at 8:21 am

Well I’m not a doctor, but considering you probably JUST implanted, I doubt any of that got to the baby. Most women would never know they were pregnant at 11 dpo and considering 50% of pregnancies are unplanned, I’m guessing a huge percentage of women are still drinking at that point. Of course it’s wise to stop as soon as you know, but I would not be worried.


32 Lee July 14, 2012 at 8:51 am

Haha, we do the same thing with our dog, he has a distinct voice when we talk for him.


33 Janna July 14, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Watching that awesome video made me miss being pregnant! I loved the bumps and wiggles and kicks.
Time to start thinking about another baby?
Maybe not quite yet….


34 robin July 14, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Boy does that bring it all back. Theres no other feeling like your baby moving inside you ,is there?


35 Kel July 14, 2012 at 9:55 pm



36 megan July 15, 2012 at 6:43 pm

So cute! Makes me want to have another…My husband used to talk to our daughter in a fake English, Australian, Southern or Russian accent, it was hilarious.


37 Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life July 16, 2012 at 10:58 am

I am only 18 weeks pregnant right now and your video brought my to tears, I am so excited to get to this point where we can interact like this!


38 Angel7 July 16, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Pretty soon he will be making the movements & gestures outside the womb, & you won’t really have to guess what is what 🙂



39 Kristy July 17, 2012 at 11:19 am
