A few months ago Doug went to the UT auction and bought three 8088’s repair/training devices. His sole purpose for purchasing them is so he can teach Matthew how to repair computers built in the 80’s. That was a time when mere man could fix his own computer, a time we have left far behind. This is the first thing Doug bought for the baby—and for a while it was the only thing in the apartment for Matthew.
The first time I felt the baby move was May 6th while we were in New York City for Elena’s graduation. Doug, Grandma B and I were watching Mama Mia! on Broadway. Matthew was about the size of an onion at the time and we didn’t know he was Matthew. A few weeks later Doug felt Matthew and just this past week felt several strong kicks.
Now fifteen weeks later he doesn’t stop moving and distorts my entire stomach. Matty’s pretty rough and there are certain places he pushes against that I don’t appreciate. Luckily either I’m a hard sleeper or he sleeps well at night because I’ve never had trouble falling or staying asleep due to his movement. We’re definitely able to feel body parts at this point even though we can’t identify them yet.
