22 weeks

Still lots of kicking and carrying on from this little one! Ira hasn't been able to feel it from the outside yet, but we're hoping that maybe in the next few days he will before we part ways for a month :( I'm feeling lazy, so I'm just going to lift right from the Baby website to tell you what's going on this week..."At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily." Here's a link to a picture of a spaghetti squash because if you're like me, you may have no idea what that looks like. : )
