Friday, February 25th, marked 17 weeks. According to Babycenter, the baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — the lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. The baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and is around 5 inches long from head to bottom. The baby can move his/her joints, and his/her sweat glands are starting to develop. It was interesting that the Babycenter weekly update also talked about dreams. Early on, I had a dream that Dave brought another puppy home. I was freaking out because we already have 3 dogs. Last week, I had a horrible dream that I had a miscarriage at 16 weeks. I had a hard time sleeping on Thursday night, so I only had about 3 hours of sleep, but I managed to function. Kaitlynn and I went to MawMaw's because she had an appointment. After the appointment, Dave met us at the mall to have dinner, shop at Gymboree and for Kaitlynn to play at the play area. Saturday, the 26th, I woke up with a headache. I tried Tylenol several times that morning and afternoon, but it didn't help, so I had to take the prescription medicine a few times. Kaitlynn had her Start Smart class that she attended with Dave. While they were in the class, I went to pick up MawMaw. Kaitlynn had swim class. Then MawMaw, Kaitlynn and I went to the Kidgit's Event, Book Blast where Kaitlynn got to meet Curious George. She rode the train, ate lunch and shopped. She also received her birthday gift for being in the Kidgit's club.
The "Life Audacious" series continued with a look at how to live the selfless life that Christ exemplified. Sunday, the 27th, we went to McDonald's for lunch then to Kaitlynn's friends, Kylie and Ava's birthday party at Jump 4 Fun. Kaitlynn had a fun time.
at lunch with daddy manis/pedis I also signed Kaitlynn up for a t-ball league. I hope she enjoys it! It doesn't start until April.
