26 weeks and counting…

14Aug08

So Little Moon is growing bigger everyday and it is evident with all of the stretching of my belly.  He loves to spread out and test the limits…  oh for the joys to come 🙂

The network of nerves in Little Moon’s ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear different conversations that I have with cool friends and family. He’s inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he’s born and takes that first gulp of air. And he’s continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches from head to heel. Little Moon’s testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.  🙂

    Hiya April & Jerod! Congratulations on your baby boy! My wife is at 34 weeks along with our second child right now. We have a little girl and are expecting a boy so we are excited. I loved your quote about wanting to help God with the burden. Our life has changed so much the past two years. My wife and I spent the first five years of our marriage waiting on God to answer our prayers and now the past two years he has just poured out tons of blessings. I can now look back and know why God didn’t give me my way.

  2. We need some pictures of that beautiful growing belly!
