cravings & such:  same ol' same ol'

the bump:  here is a collection of bump shots that we took on thursday.  wahoo!  baby can be seen.

cool & cute things:  baby's sensory development is exploding.  his/her [teeheehee!  it is pretty fun to know which one it is!]  baby's brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch.  i guess those omega 3 with dha capsules are coming in pretty handy right about now.  some research suggests that baby might be able to hear my voice now.  so, if you hear me talking to myself, i'm not crazy, i am just chatting with baby.  baby weighs 9 ounces and measures 6 inches.  fyi...by the end of the month, baby will be almost 10 inches long!

new things:  hair on baby's scalp is sprouting.  come on, full head of hair!

meaningful moments:  feeling real movement, getting to see our little peanut again [you are looking good, baby], and finding out the gender!  stay tuned...

the countdown:  147 days to go!

current size: a large heirloom tomato
