Movement and It's A BOY!

I have tried to download some ultra sound pics on here but for some reason I can't get it to work. Hopefully I can figure it out so you can see our baby Elijah.
I have heard several times that first time mom's don't usually realize they feel the baby until later in the pregnancy so I have been trying to be very aware of all the different flutters in my tummy. Tomorrow I will be 18 weeks, at 14.5 weeks I felt baby Elijah's first kick. I was laying on the couch and felt the flutter. Right away I knew without a doubt it wasn't like all the others, that it was my baby. It took another week before I felt him move again but after that wait I was feeling him at least once a day, and have been feeling more and more movement since. I have tried to savor every single one of them.
On Friday night we were on the couch watching a movie and Sang was in usual position with his hand on my tummy. I felt a kick where his palm was and his head turned to me so fast and he had the cutest smile and look of shock on his face and he ask if that was baby Elijah. I was shocked and ask if he really felt it. He was so excited and had the big smile on his face for so long. He wanted to feel him again so he started chanting "do it again" as he jiggled my tummy.
I can't even put into words how amazing this whole experience has been. Sang is so amazing and is so fun to watch how excited he is when we see Elijah on the ultra sound and when we are at a store that has baby stuff, seeing him pull out stuff he thinks is cute with the most adorable smile on his face. Most of the outfits we have bought, he picked out. And seeing him be excited when I tell him that he just moved, he comes over and puts his hand where I show him he just moved. All the texts I get through the day of Sang asking how mommy and Elijah are doing. We got asked to speak in sacrament yesterday and I spoke on marriage and Sang spoke on family, as props he showed off 2 of the baby outfits we have recently bought, it was adorable. I could not imagine sharing these experiences with any one else. He is an amazing husband and is going to make such an amazing daddy.
How have I become so blessed?

P.S. With moving into my parents basement we missed taking my 16 week picture so tomorrow we will be taking out 18 week picture so stay tuned for that.
