I am 22 weeks today! I am feeling pretty tired so I am going to try to work on some crafts this weekend and easy stuff around the house. I am going to attempt to make a few pairs of baby legs since they are so expensive to buy and so cheap to make.
Here is what is going on with our little boy 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.
Also, spring is springing here! The trees down by the river have blossoms appearing already (first week of February!) and all my spring flowers are coming up. Love it. Here is a pic of the tree blooming that I took with my cell phone:
