24 Weeks

I apologize things have been a little quiet on my blog lately. The girls came down with colds on Tuesday (the second time they have been sick, ever!) and unfortunately it mostly took its toll during the night. For three nights straight they woke up about ever 1/2 an hour and couldn’t fall back asleep on their own. Needless to say, Russell and I took turns sleeping in the nursery with them. So we have all been a little tired and cranky around here. BUT… I am happy to report a better nights sleep last night for all of us, and a new picture of my baby bump!

Here I am at 24 weeks, 2 days.

And, you know I love to compare, so here is the best one I could find of me at exactly 24 weeks with the twins. This was taken at my baby shower with my fabulous mother, and my soon-to-be sister Angie.

And… since I know a few people enjoyed it before, here is a quick babycenter.com update about Sprout.

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.
