Movin' Right Along

First and foremost, since Passover is around the corner, I need to encourage you all to watch a silly Passover video. This will help those of you who are miserable about your Passover cleaning to realize that you're not alone. Here's a link to the original Margaritaville song by Jimmy Buffett.

Second, yesterday was the first time that there were kicks visible through the skin. I was at my neighbor's house, and all of a sudden I realized that I actually could not just FEEL Baby G., I could SEE my dress moving. It was INCREDIBLE! It wasn't easy to see, and it only happened a few times (my neighbor kept missing it), but I felt my baby and I SAW him/her.

In case anyone is wondering, we don't know whether it's a boy or girl. The doctor told us that he knows, but we have chosen to keep it a surprise. Lately, I've been feeling like it's a boy, but before that I felt like it was a girl, so I'm not giving my gut too much credence at this point.

I guess that's it for now.

(did I just do this twice? If I did, please delete one!)Just discovered your blog, from a comment you left on someone else's blog! We are thinking of returning to Israel to live, and Modiin is one of the cities under consideration (although Yerushalayim is in my heart. Just not in my wallet.). Would you email me and tell me what you think of living in Modiin? See my blog for more info about me. Found some interesting things on your site, such as that 'ma'alit ha-zman.' Didn't even know there was something like that in Yerush. Would have gone, had I known. Also: would like to know what significance "triLcat" has, because I'm not understanding it.

oh gross! you have an alien parasite! :-P

seriously though, why not find out the gender? seems odd to me. You have soooooo many surprises in line for you, and I'm not talking about the color of hair and eyes, I mean will that kid like reading or playing ball, will she be curious, mathematical, spiritual, difficult or easy? will he have good or bad coordination, will she be a picky eater or not? The very least you can do is at least know the gender so you can prepare the cloths, crib color and all :-)
