Baby’s eyes are developed but his irises lack pigment. He’s finally reached 1lb in weight! Such a big boy! This week was spent in Annapolis, MD where Baby D got to spend time with both sets of grandparents, almost all of his aunts and uncles and his cousins! Too bad he wasn’t fully aware of this cool visit 😉
My family also managed to throw a surprise shower while I was home. My 7 year old niece CAN be trusted with a secret! They got me and threw an adorable aviation themed shower (how could they resist when this boys Dad and both Grandfathers are pilots). Thanks Grandmas for all the coordinating and secret keeping!
This week baby’s hearing is much better developed and he has a sense of movement (I.e. Can feel anytime his mommy decides to get up and do her “Abby dance”). His lungs are also beginning their developments so he can breathe outside of the womb in a few months!
Baby is gaining at least 4 ounces a week and his brain is growing rapidly. I’m excited to have my baby Daddy back from almost 3 weeks in Alaska and baby sat through some loud 4th of July fireworks with limited kicks. I’m hoping this is good sleep training. Also, at the end of this week we watched the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team win the World Cup against Japan. Sherlock was happy to watch while keeping baby warm.
Belly is the size of a soccer ball this week and we painted our nursery! Baby’s nostrils are fully developed and he’s taking his first breaths of amniotic fluid through them.
Got baby a crib and nursery preparations are well underway (photos soon to come). This is significant because this week, baby can open and close his eyes which means he will be able to SEE the nursery when he’s born! Also, made a trip to Hume Lake with Uncle Evan (Fred). Baby “D” may be attending camp there some day!
