An aside from our vacation….

17Jul08

Little Moon is 22 weeks today!  He is getting so big.  We can tell he is liking Canada and Washington because he keeps moving around so much!

At 11 inches and almost 1 pound, Little Moon is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he’s even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. The fine hair (lanugo) that covers Little Moon’s body and the deep wrinkles on his skin makes him look a little like an old man.  He will sport the wrinkles until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.
