Oh, hello third trimester! It’s very nice to see you. 🙂
This week, the big news is that Baby Girl has eyelashes. I really, really hope that she has Rob’s long eyelashes. His lashes are so long, they look like little fingers coming out of his eyeballs. 🙂 Her big job now (besides growing long eyelashes!) is getting fat. That’s right, from now on she’ll get a little longer each week, but mostly just fill out that pink, wrinkly skin of hers. She’s about 14.8 inches long and approximately two and a quarter pounds — like a head of chinese cabbage. Is that the same as bok choy? The picture that I see looks the same, but I’m not sure.
The Babycenter email updates I receive each week say that I will graduate to bimonthly appointments at this point. I have to say, I chuckled a little to myself, since I’ve been doing that from, oh, week four. 🙂 I’m happy to put in the extra time so that everything goes smoothly.
Tonight, Sam got out his little pretend cell phone tonight and called Baby Sister. “Baby! What are you doing in there? It’s time to come out!” He told her about his day (toy store! Bananagrams! peanut butter and jelly!) and said it was time for her to be all done in there. I couldn’t agree more. 🙂 It’s very cute to hear him talk to her.
He also informed me that Santa was going to bring him “books! And a lantern!” Books were on the list. A lantern wasn’t. Maybe we could wrap up one of the two lanterns we already have in the house… do you think he’d notice? Probably. He’s rather observant.
Anyway, 83 days left until 2/22. Woo!
