Sweet Baby weighs as much as four Oranges!
Aunt Bree and little old me
I can’t believe Sweet Baby will be here in about 9 weeks!  The time has flown by so fast.  Yesterday my sister threw a shower for us.  I cannot thank her enough for all that she did!  It was absolutely incredible!  I’m so very lucky to have a sister, and even more happy she’s going to be an Aunt!  Hip Hip Hooray!  She’s super crafty and made this adorable umbrella for over my chair where I sat to open gifts.

Unfortunately most of my pictures came out blurry, so this is the best of me and hubby!
Baby Shower - Daddy and Mommy!
About our baby:    This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. She weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. She can turn her head from side to side, and her arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath her skin. She’s probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby’s kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.    (summary and weekly image from babycenter)
