Little Moon is 23 weeks old!


Little Moon is developing a musical preference these days. He can hear what is going on outside the womb (so no cursing around April 🙂 ). With his sense of movement well developed by now, Little Moon can feel April dance and move. And now that he’s more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound, we may be able to see Little Moon squirm underneath your clothes like an alien. Blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare for breathing. Loud noises that are becoming familiar now — such as a dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze him when he hears them outside the womb. Not to worry though, because we don’t have a dog and we never vacuum. Jerod keeps praying for the “nesting” phase to kick in… we’ll see.

    YAY, little Mango Moon! 🙂

    I have a funny “alien womb baby” story to tell you about when I was pg with Gracie.

    Hope you enjoyed your vacation!

  2. I loved this part of being pregnant. When you feel wonderful and can start to feel him moving. It’s amazing for you and Jerod!
    So excited for you two.
