27 Weeks

I know, I know. I am a slacker. I owed you a new picture last weekend. In all honesty, I totally spaced and just forgot. Anyways, here is one from today @ 27 weeks.

And what Babycenter.com has to say about our little ones development:

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

What They Think Of Me

I guess they think I talk too much.

I know I owe you a new baby bump picture. This weekend, I promise!

If you were wondering, this is what victory looks like for our family right now.

This may not seem very special to you, but it is a huge win for us. The discovery that all three car seats fit safely in the back of our Subaru is one that will save us a ton of money and stress over the next few months. This means we won’t have to buy a mini-van new enough to not leave me and three kids stranded on the side if the road somewhere. This means we will only have to put a small amount of money towards a little to-and-from work car for Russell. This means we don’t even have to have it all figured out before Sprout arrives.

Now we will spend a little more time playing with the backseat arrangement (where to put the baby, who sits in the middle, etc) I am inclined to believe Sprout will take one of the side seats, and not the middle as it is set up now, but I am not sure how thrilled I would be to be 9 months pregnant and have to reach over an empty baby seat to strap in one of my rambunctious toddlers.

For now, I won’t worry and will just celebrate our fabulous discovery.
