23 Weeks/16 Months!

Only 1 more week until viability!! I have begun painting Emma's room so stay tuned for photos!
Emma sure is growing, I am way bigger this time than with Reese :)

Check out the difference at 23 Weeks: Emma vs Reese!

23 Weeks:
This week your baby's length, from crown-to-rump, is approximately 8 inches! Your growing baby has finally reached one pound. Your baby is about the size of a small baby doll and looks very human. The baby's face and body look similar to that of a newborn at this time. Your uterus can be found about 1.5 inches above your navel. Your total weight gain should be approximately 15 pounds at this time (I've gained 20...oops!)

Fat is still being deposited at a rapid rate, but your baby still looks red and wrinkled. Skin is being produced at a higher rate than the fat is, so the skin hangs loosely. Your baby looks red because the skin is losing its transparency and pigment is beginning to form. You should be feeling your baby moving quite a bit throughout the day as she will kick and punch the uterus walls. Babies also run their hands along the umbilical cord and touch their body parts while they are in the womb.

Your baby now can suck her thumb for real, where she was just sticking it in her mouth. Your baby will continue to swallow amniotic fluid and recycle it as urine.

New gear! We sold Reese's single stroller and got a new stroller that can either be a single or a double for when Emma comes!
Set up as a single- Reese loves it so much she didn't want to get out!

Happy 16 Months to Reese!!

She loves to try and dress herself...

The big news for the week....Reese has successfully transitioned to her big girl bed! Her 1st nap in her new bed was 3 hours!
