Cy Wesley at 24 weeks...

How your baby's growing:Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

I'm scheduled to see Dr. Owen again next week for a check-up & glucose screening. I have absolutely LOVED being able to feel Cy's movements & kicks throughout the day, and as a nice Valentine's Day surprise...Travis got to feel several kicks from the outside of my belly! 16 short weeks to go!!!

I'm ready for the movements...that's SO exciting about Cal. He'll be wrapped around that little girl's finger in no time. :)
