This week you are the size of a plum! You are about 2.1 inches long and weigh almost half an ounce! Even though you are so tiny you pretty much have all your parts and now just need to keep growing and growing! This week you are developing reflexes- and while I cannot feel it yet if I poke my belly you'll move.
Happy New Years! This NYE was pretty boring, yet illuminating. I changed the lightbulb in my parents living room that is 20+ feet up and on New Year's Day Stephen helped my dad switch out the lights in the kitchen/dining room. Stephen and I did manage to stay up till 11 to watch the ball drop on NYE though.
Illuminating our New Years
We returned back to VA this week- making pit stops to see friends along the way. We stopped to see on of my besties, JTP and our friend from grad school was able to make the trip with her two little ones! It was so great to see everyone- the next time we see each other we will probably all have babes in tow. Remarkable how things change in 3 years.
Stephen's eyes were doing better so he was able to help out with the 11 hour drive from TN to VA on Saturday, which was good because I needed a little break. Between getting uncomfortable sitting and having to pee more long road trips may soon be a thing of the past for this pregnant lady!
