here is what babycenter.com says about the little bubalah this week:
How your baby's growing:
Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.
We have a new stroller now - the Bugaboo Frog. My parents bought it for us as an early shower gift. A friend was selling it at a fraction of the cost and I hear it's one of the best out there! We were excited to get one!
It took us going to youtube and looking it up to see if there were any videos on how to use the thing. It's actually REALLY easy once you know where all the levers are to release things and fold things up. It's amazing. It has giant tires and can be used at the beach really easily. I envision many trips to the beach with the little guy.
