My Journey

Week 23

Posted on: September 16, 2008

“At this point you’ve pretty much adjusted to the fact you’ve got a moving little gymnast inside of you, but now they’re going to kick up the party a notch because they can hear and react to sounds from the outside world. Sounds from your alarm clock, a thunder roll, or that darned car honking at you across the intersection can actually jar their little ears enough to elicit a kick or violent bout of squirming. Of course this also means that their little ears are picking up the sounds of your voice and those near you. So go ahead, sing a lullaby —if they start kicking, it’s likely they just want you to stop… or maybe it was a kick of approval? You decide. Your baby’s tiny taste buds are still growing and their bones are continuing to ossify (harden), their tiny veins are visible through their translucent yet wrinkly skin. (Think of it this way: they’ve been swimming in the equivalent of a long hot bath for the past 23 weeks, so you can’t blame them for being a little prune-like.) “

Oh BOY!!! Sabrina is starting to look really twin-preg. I just adore that pic of her in the red top. Apart from the fact she is a really pretty girl, she is just gorgeous.

And you are a glowing daddy, P-Daddy.

When are you due?

Can time please hurry up!!!

I swear, you have to hire a professional photographer for the birth – you are going to bawl your eyes out P-daddy – and I want to live the joy vicariously through your pics.

Due date is Jan 14th, but OB will induce if she makes it to 38 weeks, which would be New Years. Either way I am flying over beginning of December.. “just in case”.. I am sure she will appreciate some help around the house by that time as well 🙂
