Happy Halloween, Friends! :)
15 Week Belly Pic: 10/30/13 -
And the side-by-side from last week:
Our little pumpkin is the size of an apple this week
It weighs about 2 1/2 ounces and is around 4 inches long. It's lungs have very primitive air sacks which are beginning to develop. It's legs are growing longer than it's arms and all of it's joints are able to move at this point. Although it's eyes are still fused shut, it can sense light - if Julie flashed a flashlight against her belly, it would likely move away from the beam. Although there really isn't anything to taste in there, it's tastebuds are beginning to form.
In other news, thank you to all of our Facebook friends for praying for and thinking about us this week as Kevin had surgery on his colon this week. He is still in the hospital - but making progress each day and we are hopeful he will be home very soon. It was a fairly routine procedure that was scheduled, so it certainly wasn't an emergency - but scary none the less.
We are nearing the day to find out the gender of this baby - simply CAN NOT WAIT. November 14th can hurry up any time now! :)
171 days until the due date!
Happy Thursday -
