Today I'm 13 Weeks and "Baby Fullen" is the size of a Peach
...or a Shrimp
I'm not sure which image I actually like better?
Perhaps this one is my favorite...
...pretty awesome huh?
As of last week our baby would have been really developing reflexes and able to suck his/her thumb, kick, squint, etc... This week baby's eyebrows are growing, he/she is able to smile AND vocal chords are developing... maybe he/she will sing like Daddy and I do!
Baby also has as many nerve endings as WE do! Connections are being made between brain, muscles & nervous system. Cool.
I was able to go talk to the 5th grade class today and read them this book:
...it's all about this baby in utero who's growing and talking to their guardian angel. It's pretty amazing to think that my baby's guardian angel is with me and my angel ALL the time. WHAT must they talk about I wonder?
The kids were eager to offer name suggestions and after being offered many I suggested they write them down on paper and drop them in my mail slot. By the end of the day the suggestions I had for names are as follows:
and Girls names?
Jen or Jenny
...not in alphabetical order! Phew! Who needs to buy a baby name book!? Just ask a 5th grader!!!
They are too funny. So are the people who think or that you can't hear them when you're walking by and they say things like "Whoa! She's huge! She's getting SO huge! I just found out she's pregnant! I cannot believe how BIG she's getting already! She's SURE there's only ONE in there?" Sheesh! I'm only 5 feet away maam!
makes me feel like saying, "Uh, c'mere... I'll show you huge!"
...but I won't. I'll just think it.
