Week 29

How your baby's growing:Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.
Only 3 days of school left for me!! The boys have 4 days left. On Friday morning EARLY we (the ladies I work with) are leaving and going to St. Simon's. We will be spending a long weekend away and will come home that next Monday.
This weekend we ordered ants for the gel ant farm. We had graduation (pre-k) and the boys went to the track.
I have also realized that I have a bunch of clothes for our baby boy but still other things I need to stock up on including socks, onsies, washclothes, towels, sheets and recieving blankets. I have plenty of pj type clothes for him but not as many outfits for going out. Oh yes and Friday I bought him his Christmas outfit. (a place here in town is going out of business and I got it for $9 including tax) I can't believe how fast these last few weeks have gone. In no time we will be holding this squirmy little boy and loving on him.
