Many times, Julie has felt the babies kicking. When I am around, she calls me over to try to feel it. I rush over, place my hands on her belly and… nothing. I always miss it.

Until today. Julie asked if my hands were full, and I noticed she had her own hands on her belly. I went over, hopeful as always but without high expectations. Then there were two taps! Another moment later, a much stronger kick. It was such an incredible experience for me. I had a big smile on my face, and it really made my day. After all the recent worries about the babies and Julie being placed on bed rest, this was a happy moment that we both needed.
