22 Weeks!

YOUR baby now looks like a miniature newborn, checking in at 10.9 inches
(the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound. Her skin will continue to appear wrinkled until she gains enough weight to fill it out, and the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her head and body is now visible. Her lips are becoming more distinct, and the first signs of teeth are appearing as buds beneath her gum line. Her eyes are developed, though the iris (the colored part of the eye) still lacks pigment. Eyelids and eyebrows are in place, and her pancreas, essential for hormone production, is developing steadily.

I think I felt the baby kick for sure on Friday night, when we were dealing with Billy. Shawn said the baby was telling us everything was going to be ok. For those of you who've requested pictures of the whole family, including the dad-to-be, see below!

love your blog. Todd just introduced it to me recently so i'm catching up. Clever name. And then I realized....If the name 'Harris Herald' is already taken, what will we call ours??!? Maybe Harris Highlights, like the children's magazine :)
