Our baby is truly so spoiled already and they aren't even here yet.
I arrived at work to find that Jo had put a huge (not exaggerating) lamb on my office chair. Of course there was also a big toad (for those who are familiar with my nickname they will toad-ally get that one) and a whole bag full of lotions, and Bath and Body stuff for KT. She never ceases to amaze me! She is the most sweet and thoughtful person. The real funny thing about it all, was the card she attached to the stuffed animals that said they were both for Frankie because she knew she wasn't supposed to be buying for the baby just yet. The card read:
I saw these and thought of you. If you want to give them to your brother or sister that's okay.
My amazing stylist, Amanda who is a busy new Mom to her sweet little girl, Riley Love born Dec. 6th is already set to plan the whole baby shower. My big Sis, Tracy who is already very busy planning a wedding and moving says, 'this is the first of the gifts!' My lovely boss, Pat who leaves me much to soon to take on another job says she has started to knit and of course my Mom, says she 'can't wait to buy, buy, buy!' I know I must be missing someone (sorry for that) as it seems like everyone who finds out is ecstatic for us. We are very blessed!
So once again I repeat we have a truly spoiled baby...already!
10 WEEKS tomorrow....
By the end of Week 10, your baby graduates from embryo to fetus, which literally means "little one." It also translates to "I'm just going to keep getting bigger and bigger and so are you(KT)!"
Other highlights this week:
Your baby has finally morphed from a little tadpole into, well, a baby. Not only is the face more human-like, but that unflattering "tail" (really just the developing spinal cord) has disappeared, fusing into the spinal column.
Your baby now has discernible fingers and toes, which will explain the steady stream of kicks and punches you'll(KT'll)feel down the line.
Junior's skeleton is starting to grow and harden. The ears are beginning to take shape and the eyelids are no longer transparent. Tooth buds are forming, although your baby won't get any teeth until six or seven (or eight or nine or 10) months after birth.
Baby's brain will make an incredible 25,000 new neurons every minute this week.
If you're baby is a boy, he's started producing that macho hormone testosterone. And whether your baby is a boy or a girl, the kidneys are creating copious amounts of urine. Lucky for you, you won't have to change a diaper for another 30 weeks.
Baby weighs only 4 grams and measures 1½ inches, about the size of a mondo Brazil nut.
