Friday, January 21st marked 12 weeks. According to Babycenter, the most dramatic development this week: reflexes. Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, the toes will curl, the eye muscles will clench, and the mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it. The intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into the abdominal cavity about now, and the kidneys will begin excreting urine into the bladder. Meanwhile, nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in your baby's brain, synapses are forming furiously. The face looks unquestionably human: The eyes have moved from the sides to the front of the head, and the ears are right where they should be. From crown to rump, your baby is just over 2 inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.
Kaitlynn and I played in the snow for a little while.
We went to MawMaw's to take her to an appointment. Kaitlynn napped in the car. Dave met us at MawMaw's. We went to the mall, ate dinner, walked around and Kaitlynn played in the play area. When we got back to MawMaw's, Dave's car wouldn't start. Later that evening, Kaitlynn had diarrhea and was up a lot of the night.
Saturday, the 22nd, Kaitlynn was feeling better, so she went to swim class. After swim class, she took a shower in the locker room. I could not get her out of the shower. She was having too much fun! Afterwards we ate lunch and met Tia, Annabelle and Alayna at McDonald's for the girls to play. When we came home, I took a nap because I was just so exhausted.
Sunday, the 23rd, we missed church because we were all tired and Kaitlynn's diarrhea came back the night before. Later we went to MawMaw's to try to get the car started, but it still wouldn't start.
Monday, the 24th, I had a doctor's appointment. I had to miss Sacred Romance class since we only had the 1 car. I hated missing, but it just wasn't an option to go. At this point, I had a headache for 2 days and couldn't get rid of it. Dave brought gatorade, caffeine soda and peanut m&ms home for me so I could see if any of that would get rid of the headache.
I ordered Kaitlynn's Valentine's Cards and can't wait to get them! So cute!
