Yes, 19 weeks already. I'm looking forward to being half way this week. On Tuesday we have our ultrasound @ 3:30. However I feel as though I've been able to get to know the baby lately as I can feel it moving around in there. Keir has been able to feel the little one from the outside too! So far, I can tell he/she likes to eat and relax.... it must take after Keir. :-)
So what's happening this week?
How the baby's growing: The baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces, and he/she measures 6 inches, head to bottom Â about the length of a small zucchini. His/her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of his body now. His/ber kidneys continue to make urine, and the hair on his scalp is sprouting. This is a crucial time for sensory development: The baby's brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. If the baby is a girl, she has an astonishing six million eggs in her ovaries. They'll dwindle to fewer than two million by the time she's born.
Volleyball starts on Monday. We will have 2-a-day practices for the first two weeks. The first three days we have try-outs. As of now there are 73 girls signed up and only 54 can make a team.
I found out this week that I'll be teaching in St. Clair as a long term sub. The position goes until Nov. and is teaching health and P.E. to some elementary classes, 7th, and 10th grade. A perfect fit!
Enjoy the remainder of the summer!
