cheap entertainment

Last night I talked to my mom, dad and sister on the phone (we're all big fans of The Speakerphone. Don't have to tell the same story to multiple people). I had st-r-e-t-c-hed out in the recliner in our living room (a lovely place to sit).
As a multi-tasker, I often like to have something else to "do" while on the phone - usually just something for my eyes to watch (sometimes it's a muted TV show, other times it's watching the neighbor's funny little fluffy white dog run and yap around their backyard). Last night, I found a new "hobby."
Who knew that placing a nearly empty Aquafina water bottle on my belly and watching it bounce as my baby wiggles and kicks would be so entertaining? I was tickled by the fact that it would just rest solidly on my belly anyway (that's one of those things that you always see pregnant women doing on TV or in the movies or something). But when my (VERY ACTIVE) baby would shift, wiggle, kick or poke - I watched the water splash and the bottle teeter back and forth on its "shelf."
Of course, the second I took the bottle off my belly and told Mark to "get over here and feel your kid move!" Baby B settled down. Then, Mark goes to sit back down on the couch, Baby B kicks again. Stubborn kid. :)

Isn't that the best?! I just LOVE watching the babies react to different things on the belly. Even just watching the baby shift from one end to the other cracked me up. =) Yes, fun times indeed. Enjoy it, it goes so fast!!
