How your baby's growing:
This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. She's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and her skeleton is hardening. The bones in her skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for her to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as her brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
On Saturday I had a wonderful baby shower thrown by several wonderful ladies from Hays Hills and Bannockburn Baptist Church. We are so blessed! This weekend Some dear friends of mine are throwing us a shower. Thank you Jenny H, Stephanie H, Nocona K, Ashley S, and Jill W! I CAN'T WAIT!
