Week 27

Its week 27 and here is the baby update:

This week he weighs almost 2 pounds and is about 14.4 inches long with his legs extended. He can now open and close his eyes, and he sleeps and wakes at regular intervals. He may suck his fingers, and although his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with assistance — if he were to be born prematurely. Chalk up any rhythmic movement 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 isn't bothersome to him, so enjoy the tickle. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. Wonder what he's thinking?

I have been able to feel Junior move for the past week or so. It is pretty cool and a little weird at the same time. The other night he kept thumping away at my hand...a pretty neat feeling. He has been highly active lately.

Wonder what he's thinking? Junior is probably wondering why we can't come up with a, the fourth reading didn't produce "the one" or even any challengers to the top 25.

The nesting stage of Natasha's pregnancy has definately hit. I will just say that it has brought a smile to my face. I am not saying anything else because somethings I have said have not been well received :) I will say that Junior has a fine start to his wardrobe. Natasha has been making a haul at Goodwill with some lightly used clothes.
