Wednesday, April 25th marked 28 weeks!
|That rockin' sunburn is thanks to Truck Touch|
By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
Our little Snowflake has been moving and shaking. I notice her more at night. I don't know if that is because I am on the go all day long or if she is just more of a night owl like her Mom. She still plays hard to get with her Dad. He has gotten to where he watches from a distance (sitting next to me) to see her shakin' around in there. When I do poke at my stomach to try to get her to move, he will poke at my face and say, "Do you like when I poke your face? That's probably what Snowflake feels."
As I mentioned last week, it was a busy week. Truck Touch was a success and I am glad it is over. There will be another post about it... sometime. :)
Snowflake had her first baby shower. The lovely people at my school were too good to our little family.
|What an adorable cake! And yummy too!|
|The hostesses with mostest-s|
|Preston got the Cheez-Its he registered for|
|Look at these adorable booties that my music teacher made!!!|
|Would you look at all her goodies?!|
My MIL was kind enough to bring my Nandy and Pa to the shower. I loved that they got to come celebrate Miss Snowflake with us. They haven't been over in a couple years so it was big day for them. From what I heard, Pa gabbed the whole over and back.
|Checking out Snowflake's room|
While we were in the room, Pa said, "I wasn't so sure about that color when you told me about it. But I really like it." Good to know we have his approval. ;)
The Hubby also celebrated his 30th birthday. It was really exciting.... well, maybe not. It was real low key. We went to the bank, got a couple wedding shower gifts, had lunch and then he wanted to come home for a nap. How old is he again?!
His celebration started on Friday, when I took him balloons and a cake to work. The cake actually left the car. The balloons did not. :(
|My 30th birthday boy with his balloons. The wind really doesn't do that smiley face balloon justice. It was huge!|
|See how big that is! Wonder why he didn't take it in to his pony office?|
|He opened his presents in Snowflake's room|
|Of course, Tobie helped.|
At school, I have a few little friends that will say, "Mrs. Snow, your belly is getting so big!" One day, I followed up with, "So is yours!" She quickly informed me that little kids don't have babies in their bellies. Now when I say it, she just laughs at me and says, "No, it's not!"
Ever since we got the lamp, Hubby goes in each night and turns it on for Miss Snowflake. When he goes to bed, he will normally shut it off and say she is going to bed too. She is such a lucky girl because he is going to be such a great Daddy to her when she makes her grand appearance.
There are only 10 days of school left but they are sure to be busy ones!
