Little Moon hits 16 weeks!


Time is flying by…. 4 months, already!

How Little Moon is growing:

In the next few weeks, Little Moon will double in weight and add inches in length. He/she is about 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His/her legs are much more developed, his/her head is more erect than it has been, and his/her eyes have moved closer to the front of his/her head. Little Moon’s ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of the scalp has begun, though his/her locks aren’t recognizable yet. Little Moon has even started growing toenails. And there’s a lot happening inside as well. For example, the heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as Little Moon continues to develop.

Little Moon is about the size of an avocado this week. Our Little Mexican!
