Houston... we have a baby bump!

Hello all!!!

Baby Taylor is definitely growing these days!

What else is happening with Baby Taylor this week?

The network of nerves in our baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. (S)he may now be able to hear both mom & dad's voice as we chat with each other. (S)he's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his/her lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when (s)he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And (s)he's continuing to put on baby fat. (S)he now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches from head to heel - still about the size of an eggplant.

I've done a little work on the nursery! I made some curtains and recovered the futon. We still need to paint. I think I have finally decided on what I want to do in there so we'll get it done eventually! You'll get a little sneak peak of the curtains and futon in the pics.

Baby Taylor's been listening to some classical music every night.... also seen in a pic!

Our next midwife appointment is Nov. 5th. After that appointment we move up to being seen once every two weeks rather than once a month.

Much love!
