Plum

Week 12: The baby is the size of a plum! We are enjoying learning about how our baby is growing each week. Here’s the latest for this week:

“The most dramatic  development of the week: Reflexes. Your baby’s fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won’t be able to feel it. His intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into his abdominal cavity about now, and his kidneys will begin excreting urine into his bladder. From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over two inches long (about the size of a prune) and weighs half an ounce.”

And our pics from this week- Matt is really getting into the spirit of the pictures and the fruit!…
