"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."
I know he's just over a pound...but he's realy starting to get heavy! I feel sore and tired by the end of the day, and I've had some backaches. Of course all the go-go-go of getting our house ready for full time habitation while continuing to sleep on an air mattress on the condo can't be helping. What was going to be 3 or 4 days on an air mattress as somehow become a month! Lovely.
Here's hoping for a mattress in the next week. Wouldn't that be a "Happy Birthday" to me?!
In other news...
...Oliver is doing great adjusting to the new house. We have been getting him over to spend time there whenever possible and yesterday and today he took naps there without a problem. Recognizing the pack and play helped I'm sure, but I am so relieved that he transitioned so well to his new room.
