6 months... really? and some baby bump eye candy! :o)

**This is a few days late!**

---------------------> That's the 6 month bump! :o)

Hey hey! 6 months has arrived!!!!

Our baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him/her at just over a pound. Since (s)he's almost a foot long so (s)he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his/her body is filling out proportionally and (s)he'll soon start to plump up. His/her brain is also growing quickly now, and his/her taste buds are continuing to develop. His/her lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his/her air sacs inflate once (s)he hits the outside world. His/her skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

We've decided on a midwife here in Oklahoma City. We'll be having Baby Taylor at the OU Hospital in downtown Oklahoma City. We have our first prenatal visit with our new midwife today to see how we are doing! Everything seems to be going well... just growing and kicking in there! It'll be so nice having the appointments here now so Daddy Taylor can come to all of them!

Grandma & Grandpa bought Baby Taylor a stroller/car seat this past weekend! Yay! and Thank goodness for grandparents! We are so excited about it! We decided on the Britax Chaperone travel system and love it! We got in the Savannah fabric. We also got a "going home" outfit for Baby Taylor and it is PRECIOUS!!!!! and.. we also got a bunch of books to read to this sweet lil babe! Grandparents are the bestest! I will do a separate post with pics of all the new goodies!

Until then... Much love from The Taylors!
