Our Baby is now the size of a ....

RASPBERRY! The raspberry (plural, raspberries) is the edible fruit of a number of species of the genus Rubus. Much more endearing however is the thought of our new baby in his or her tiny human form as the mere size of a raspberry!

I read today that the babies eyes, nose and tongue are forming this week. The bones are starting to harden and the gender beginning to distinguish itself; however, it will not be known to us until 18 weeks.

With my first two littles ones I did not find out their gender until delivery. I really enjoyed not knowing and it made it even more exciting to tell people. The poor little darlings ended up wearing yellow for the first two years of their life because of it. The preparation this time will be welcomed and it will be fun for the kids!

It will also significantly reduce the amount of yellow in our home ;)

On the B Side: I am grateful to be able to go thru this miraculous process again! I love knowing that my body is changing for the explicit purpose of welcoming another beautiful little spirit into our family! xoxo
