16 weeks

16 weeks is already here and that just seems crazy to me. The plus side of chasing around a toddler this pregnancy is that I dont have time to and think about it all the time like I did with Griffin, and thus it is going by FAST! I'm feeling great and belly continues to pop. This is quiet the active baby I can tell you that- it has been moving like crazy!!

We are hoping that in 2 weeks we will know pink or blue! We have our first doctor's appointment with our new doctors so please pray for us. We were very spoiled by Dr. Holton, who delivered Griffin, but he is sadly no longer delivering so we had to find a new practice.

Our little avocado is growing his fingernails :) Check out the update!

Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.
