Weekly wisdom: "Put Your Past Regrets To Rest!”
Milestones: Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds, like a head of cabbage. A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)
Here are some fun photos of the kiddos – recently Gabby has started to really enjoys puffs – and tonight I gave her her new sippy cup for the first time. She had more fun chewing on the cup and didn’t really get much juice but that’s okay. I will continue to introduce it to her each day and eventually she’ll be chugging away!
And how cute is my toolman?!! I think we may need to get him a tool belt for his birthday – which is less than 2 months away – holy smokes!!
