26 Weeks!

OUR baby now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber), from head to heel. The nerve pathways in his ears are developing, which means his response to sounds is growing more consistent. His lungs are developing now, too, as he continues to take small breaths of amniotic fluid — good practice for when he's born and takes that first breath of air.

According to the cute LilliePie ticker at the bottom of our blog, we've only got 97 days till baby time (give or take, obviously)! We can't believe it! It is getting a little hard to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day, and sitting for a long time in general isn't very comfortable (guess that's good for kicking the couch tater habit). We have so much to do before baby comes, yet remain grateful for this incredible privilege.
