First off, baby is 19 weeks. He or she is 6" long and about half a pound in weight already!! If you want to compare, go grab a mango or an heirloom tomato at the grocery store. Baby's brain is differentiating into different regions for all his senses (sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing). The arms and legs are proportionate to the rest of the body now also. Baby has had hiccups a couple times sense last week. It's very fun to feel him or her kick me, although last night he thought it was funny to kick at my cervix. That wasn't very nice of him, but it still makes me smile.
Next, my Jajoby finally came home!!!!! His plane landed around 9:30 am yesterday and our two doggies were SO excited to see him, just like me. The first time he even tried to feel baby kick, the baby gladly responded and kicked at daddy's hand a couple times. The rest of the night Jake tried to feel, but he couldn't feel them. (I think baby was kicking more up or down than straight out) We took the girls to the doggy park and sat out by the pool for a while. It was such a great day. It almost feels like Jake is only staying for the weekend, it doesn't seem real that he's actually home. We can't wait to come home! I can't believe it's only a week and a half away!!
Here is a picture of what baby looks like in the womb right now, sweet as can be!
Here is my weekly belly picture! With daddy!!!!
Only one more update until we're on our way home. I won't be updating while I'm at home.
Love you all,
Mommy, Daddy and Baby
