32 Weeks/18 Months!

Officially 8 months pregnant!!
Today I had my OB check up. Everything is right on target! Emma's heartbeat was 148. My fundal height is measuring 32 weeks. I go back in 2 weeks :)

32 Weeks (Emma):

32 weeks (Reese):

32 Weeks:
By week 32, your baby weighs nearly 4 pounds! The crown-to-rump length of your baby is approximately 11.7 inches and the total length is about 18.9 inches.

This week your baby's movements will peak. You should continue to monitor the fetal movements daily and address any concerns with your caregiver. The wrinkles in your baby's face are disappearing and fat is still being deposited throughout the baby's body. 

The body growth slows down from now on.

Because of the lack of space in the uterus, the legs are drawn up in what is known as the fetal position.

As a preparation for breastfeeding, your baby has learned to root for the breast. The baby will turn its head if touched on the cheek and open its mouth if the bottom lip is tickled. By this time the baby can also suck and swallow in a coordinated way. 

Good morning Reese, Happy 18 Months (8/6/10)!

Off to school...clinging on to her bear!

Reese is now 18 months, aka: 1.5 years old!! Time just flies by these days. She is 22#1oz (20%) and 33" tall (86%). She had to get one shot and managed not to shed a tear! I am so proud of her!!! That afternoon she acted super "goofy" and was not aware of the shot she just got at all!

Where's Reese....?

What shall we cook for dinner Momma?!

Reese is continuing to develop her vocabulary daily. She can now clearly say "Harley" and tries to say "Bailey". She can also say: hi, baby, rice, trash, please and thank you. She is learning manners at school so we have been re-enforcing them at home. I ask her to say "more please" instead of just "more". She has thank you figured out and will say it when she hands you something, which is too funny! She also told me "bless you"  after I sneezed one day! I was caught off guard because I hadn't taught her that one yet (although we say it when we sneeze). She has also blown us a few more kisses, which I desperately want to catch on video soon!

Reese has started her transition period at school where she moves up to the next class (18mo-2yrs). They do it slowly over the whole week, which makes it easier on her AND me!
