The weekly updates...

We've been a little lax on the veggie updates so here they come.....

28 Weeks:
By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

29 Weeks:
Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.

Here is a little more practical look at what Reese should look like in Kimmy's belly.

Everything is going pretty well right now. We went looking for carpet Saturday and spent some time with my Mom and Dad and then today, I worked in Reese's room most of the afternoon. I think I'll be able to post some pics in the next day or so because I want ALLLLLL of the painting done prior to any carpet being laid and before any baby furniture hits the floor. Other than that, Reese just kicks away after eating and Kim is doing fine. Her belly button is just about ready to pop...if you know her, she's a little sensitive about that for some reason. Kim and Lance and their weird deal with their buttons. Eh well. Keep praying for our little girl and for Kim as well!
