Little Kick Boxer?

Is our little girl going to be a kick boxer? She is kicking and moving around all the time. I am now working nights at the hospital and she is so active starting around 1 am and continues until around 4 am! Then when I go home to try to get some sleep, she starts in again around 11 and continues into the afternoon, when does she ever sleep, God knows she doesn't let me sleep too long. I have been in awe of how much she moves around in there, it is so great to feel her moving all the time and you can actually see my belly "jumping" up and down from the outside. Hopefully this is a great sign of a strong willed baby girl, which I know she will be.
Still thinking about names, but nothing confirmed yet. Brian and I can't agree on one, who knows we might not know until she is born. Not much else, just working and trying to get some rest. We are still doing a lot of research on CDH and have been watching some of the other CDH babies blogs very close including the two babies that are currently at Children's Mercy. Sofie is getting ready to go home (we met her and her dad on our tour of the NICU) and now Kinley is in the NICU and doing well (only 2 days old!). The stories of other parents that have been going through the same thing is so reassuring and provide us with hope and positive attitudes that CDH can and has been beat! Thank you to everyone who has left comments on our blog, sent cards and the positive phone calls, they all mean so much and the continued support will help us stay in good spirits until we finally get to meet our baby girl. Keep the thoughts and prayers coming for not only our baby but the other families and babies battling with CDH.
