19 Weeks!

Babies are doing lots more than just growing this week!  :)

  • Hair is sprouting on the babies heads!  Both George and Farid have great hair, so I'd bet these babies are going to be born with lots of dark hair!!  :)
  • Their brains are designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision and touch.
  • Some research suggests that the babies can now hear, so I hope to begin using our Bellybuds soon!  I am very excited for these babies to hear their Daddy's voices! 
  • Babies weigh about 8.5 ounces each and measure 6 inches head to rump.  They are about the size of an heirloom tomato.  (What the hay is an heirloom tomato and why is it so dang big????)  I also read mango which I like better.  Yep. Mangoes.  That's what we'll go with!  Haha!
The books also say that I can expect to get much bigger in the next few weeks.  Really?!  Gosh...I know I have a long way to go, but I feel so big already!  I have only recently been experiencing some of the discomforts of carrying around a belly the size of a soccer ball all day!  :)  I know what you're thinking...."Better get used to it, Jeni!"  I'm aware.  My apologies.  I will stop griping now....

Really though.  I have been feeling pretty great overall!  Enjoying every moment of this journey!  One more week until I get to see the guys and we get to see these adorable babies!!!  Life is good!
