Yup, it’s official, if our baby was born anytime after today, he would no longer be a preemie. This means that Little Moon’s lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though he probably won’t be arriving for another three weeks. Little Moon probably weighs about 6 pounds and […]

Little Moon is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. He now weighs almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. He’s shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered his body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered […]

His fat layers — which will help regulate his body temperature once he’s born — are filling him out, making him rounder. Little Moon’s skin is also smoother than ever.
