Skinny Jeans

My mom is 11 weeks pregnant today.

The fig-sized baby is now fully formed - measuring 1 1/2 inches (about 4cm) long and weighing in at a quarter of an ounce (about 7g). Its skin is still transparent, allowing many of its blood vessels to show through. Some of its bones are beginning to harden, and tiny toothbuds are starting to appear under its gums. Its fingers and toes have separated, and it may soon be able to open and close its fists. It's already busy kicking and stretching, and its tiny movements are so fluid they look like water ballet. These movements will increase as its body grows and becomes more developed and functional.

I did dishes all day I tell you. It was my week to do dishes, and I'm supposed to do them every day, but without mom to remind me everyday, I got behind. I had so many dishes to do, it took me all day literally!

And I bought some skinny jeans that looks like this today! I LUV SKINNY JEANS! I've been searching for a good pair forever, and I finally found a good pair today! I had to buy them!
And we watched Oliver Twist tonight with Daddy. It was a little bit sad and depressing, but that's how the book is. I thought that the acting was really good.

I am excited about the baby. I want to hurry and find out if it's a boy or a girl.
And I do miss my mom and the kids. I want to hug my Noah so bad!

Hi Lex! That's interesting what you posted about the growth of the baby. I am excited for the baby to be born as well. I think it will be a boy. Thanks for sharing your mom, Mia and Noah with us. We had fun with them last weekend. Noah & Andy fought alot and Andy bit Noah on the cheek but Noah is a pretty resiliant toddler and he will heal. Nat and Jason will be there in a few more days. They are excited.

Mia has toughened Noah up, but he still grew up in a family of girls, so he's not as rough ans aome boys his age. I think the baby will be a girl. But I am always wrong. I have never been right when one of my aunts gets pregnant. NEVER. So I keep telling myself I should stop guessing, but I can't help myself, and then I'm always wrong. We can't wait for Nat and Jason to come!
