8+ Weeks

It has been an exciting day! My sister and her fiance closed on their first house today- I am so happy for them!

I have also been busy browsing the internet and looking at baby stuff. It is so much fun! I know it will be much more fun when we find out the baby's gender!  

I am a little over 8 weeks, and so our baby is about the size of a kidney bean!

Here are some fun facts about our baby at 8 weeks (get used to plenty of these-I'm obviously a first time mom!): 

New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.

~What a miracle children really are!~
