10 Weeks & 13 Months!

I am 10 weeks today! I had an OB appointment this morning and the fetal heartbeat is still going strong! I go back in 2 weeks for the neural tube sono.

Our baby weighs approximately 5 grams and is the size of a small plum! The baby has grown an incredible amount during these past few weeks. The fingers and toes have separated and the tail has disappeared now. Our baby has taste and tooth buds at this point, which will continue to develop. The brain will continue to grow at an amazing rate and nearly a quarter of a million new neurons are produced every minute! The embryonic heart is completely developed. External genitalia are not apparent until next week, but a male's testes will already be producing testosterone.

Reese is 13 months and doing great!! We are trying to teach her "ABC" and she tries to say it back to me but it is all gibberish. Cody got some cute picts of her this weekend. We took her to the park the other day and she loved swinging with her daddy but hated swinging by herself in the infant swing.
Her newest "trick"

Reese now knows where her belly button is!!
