A Kicking Baby & Santa Claus

Tonight I feel like Levi is trying to beat me up from the inside out. This little boy seems to get more and more active these days. I feel him kicking inside me just about everyday now. Tonight as Joel and I were watching Heroes, Joel had his hand on my belly. Levi was wiggling inside of me, and then all of the sudden, he kicked so hard that it startled both Joel and I. I literally jumped from surprise...I'm kind of a jumpy person anyway. It's not hard to startle me. It's such a weird feeling to feel something moving around inside of you. I feel like there is an alien inside of me. Most of the time I feel like I'm being poked from the inside. So weird. But kind of cool and exciting at the same time. I'm getting more and more excited about meeting this baby.

I have a question for you guys. Did you believe in Santa Claus when you were younger? And do you plan on telling your children about him (or have you already)? I'm just curious. Joel and I do not have any plans to tell our children about Santa Claus. My sister and brother-in-law do plan on telling their children about Santa Claus, which is fine. Joel and I just don't see the point (but just for our kids) - I think it's mostly because neither one of us grew up believing in Santa Claus, so it's not that important for us to pass on something that had very little impact on our childhood...
