12 Weeks

This is what we know about baby to date;

All of baby's organs, structures and systems are fully formed. The heart is pumping several quarts of blood every day. Baby has also begun to develop nerves and a spinal cord, allowing him/her to feel pain. Baby's brain is not the same size it will be at birth, it does have the same structure. Fingers and toes have separated and hair and nails continue to grow. Baby is approximately 2.5 - 3.5 inches and weighs about 12 - 14 grams.

Also, the baby now show definite signs of gender. In 4 weeks we'll know if we are expecting a little brother or a little sister! Baby can now moves spontaneously and this time next year will be 24 Weeks Old! We're thinking Jacob or Josie but that's always subject to change ;)

The time is passing quickly! We've been busy and I've been fortunate to feel well. Poor Dayton and Ellie have strep right now. I'm hoping they heal quickly and that I can avoid their germies!

On the B Side: I am grateful for each day! I am grateful to be alive and well and to be so blessed! I love waking up and having new opportunities each day! The time I have here on this earth is precious and I never want to take it for granted. xoxo
