When life gives you lemons...

Make lemonade.... or a BABY! :o)
3 1/2 months already!

Where do the weeks go?!?!

This week our adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth.

Baby's body's growing faster than his/her head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, his/her arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of his/her body. (His/her legs still have some lengthening to do.)

Our baby can also squint, frown, grimace... thanks to brain impulses... the facial muscles are getting a workout!

Baby Taylor now measures at about 3 1/2 inches... about the size of a lemon... and weighs about 1 1/12 ounces.
