16 Weeks

Friday, February 18th, marked 16 weeks. According to Babycenter, the baby's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. The legs are much more developed, the head is more erect than it has been, and the eyes have moved closer to the front of the head. The ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of the scalp has begun, though his/her locks aren't recognizable yet. The baby's even started growing toenails. The heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as the baby continues to develop. Photobucket This was 1 of the make up snow days for preschool. It was weird and kind of nice that Kaitlynn had school 4 days this week. I used the time while she was in school, to pick up MawMaw and then get last minute stuff for Kaitlynn's birthday party. I couldn't believe her birthday party was that weekend (already)! MawMaw and I picked Kaitlynn up from school. The daily schedule said they read "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom," had a letter show in the block center where each child revealed their letter, went outside to play on the playground, in music sang / listened to "BINGO" and did yoga (bumble bee breath). Kaitlynn fell asleep in the car, as we were driving MawMaw to an appointment. Saturday, the 19th, Kaitlynn missed her Start Smart class because we both woke up late. We did make it to swim class. Afterwards, we went to MawMaw's because we were supposed to get manis/pedis for her birthday, but Kaitlynn was having a hard to listening, so she lost the privilege. We went to church. We continued the series, "Life Audacious", where we explored what Paul had to say about his Savior, Jesus. PhotobucketKaitlynn attended her class, where she learned "Jesus loves when we help." They read the story of the little boy who shared his lunch (Matthew 14:15-21, Mark 6:35-44, Luke 9:12-17, John 6:5-14) Afterwards, we went to Chesterfield Mall to get Kaitlynn a birthday girl shirt, had to pick up some stuff from Target and Walmart too. At bedtime, I read "Tangled: Kingdom of Color" to Kaitlynn.
