Wow, is all I can say. It seems like yesterday that I found out I was going to have a bundle of joy and now its been about five weeks since I found out she was a girl! Time sure is flying by. I knew it was going to with the holidays but sheesh, its hard to believe.
The update on baby center was...Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.
My good friend Beth, took pitures of Cory and I and here are a few!
