I had read and heard it said before, but I guess I never really understood it until now. If you've had kids you surely know this, if you haven't you too won't understand until you do. The experience of laying in bed next to your wife with your hands on her belly and feeling your unborn child kick and move and wiggle around is one of the most profound experiences I've ever been a part of. I know it makes my wife uncomfortable, especially when the baby is moving around so much it looks like an alien is about to burst through the skin, but to me it's simply amazing. All the worries, fears, and trepidations that go along with being a husband and father disappear for those few moments and I find myself grinning like a kid on Christmas morning.
