According to babycenter.com...Your sensory development is exploding! Your brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that you may be able to hear our voices now. Mommy will have to start reading books to you every night before she goes to bed! :-)
You weigh about 8 1/2 ounces and measure 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. In fact, Mommy's belly grew 3/4" bigger in just 4 days! Your arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of your body now. Your kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on your scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on your skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
Babycenter.com also suggests that now is a good time to start ordering baby furniture.....as some items can take up to 12 weeks to be shipped. I think this will be true for the rocker that Mommy wants, so we will have to visit BabiesRus soon and get it ordered to match the nursery. As for the furniture, we hope it is shipped sooner rather than later. We still need to make the crib bedding! Pictured is the set that Mommy picked out! With the military discount, the hutch was more or less free! YAY! Plus there is no tax and free shipping to the home! We ordered online at simplybabyfurniture.com
Time is flying by.....at the end of this week, Mommy will be 1/2 way through this pregnancy! WOW!
