Adam and I had a great weekend with his parents and sister. We took a trip to Freeport (an outlet town in Maine) and got lots of things for baby Exit. Above is a picture of our new bassinet. We also got a Baby Bjorn and an Easter dress for her. It's so much fun shopping for her!
Here are a few tid bits about how she is growing this week!
The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. She may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. She's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of her lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when she's born and takes that first gulp of air. And she's continuing to put on baby fat. She now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel.
