Time: November 13th- 19th
Developmental Milestones: Baby Girl is slightly more than 2 pounds now… about the size of a rutabaga! Her brain tissue is rapidly developing and her delicate eyelids are beginning to open (they have been fused shut since about 11 weeks).
Cravings: Grapes! They have never tasted so good!
Highlights: Lots of progress on preparing for Baby Girl’s arrival this past week. We ordered the crib, cleared out several pieces of furniture in the nursery, and took 2 tours of birthing facilities in the area. Baby Girl has been much more active this week- it’s always reassuring to feel her move every so often.
James and I also hosted a potluck Thanksgiving with our group of friends on Sunday. It is our third year of celebrating “Friendsgiving” and I look forward to this tradition each Fall.
