My Quote

"Maybe our mistakes are what makes our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, or be who we are. After all seasons change. So do cities. People come in our lives and people go. But it's comforting...the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're lucky, always will be."-Miranda Brogdon

22 Weeks!!

Dear Reader,

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, I'm starting to look like a miniature newborn. My lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and I'm even developing tiny tooth buds beneath my gums. My eyes have formed, but my irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If my mommy could see inside her womb, she'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers my body and the deep wrinkles on my skin, which I'll sport until I add a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside my belly, my pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily. My mommy is beginning to wonder what exactly is going on inside of her because there's SO much going on now. I'm constantly moving and exploring my surroundings!!

Baby Alec
