Four Months Today

September 5, 2008

I am officially 16 weeks along at this point, whatever that means.  All I know is what I overhear.  Yeah I said it, hear!  From what I’ve heard, it sounds like:

  • I’m about 4.5 inches long and about 3.5 ounces.  They say that is the size of an avocado but that just makes me think of dip.  Mmmm… I’m hungry. 
  • My heart pumps 25 quarts of blood a day.  That sounds like a lot for an avocado.
  • My legs are more developed now (but I thought they were alright before).
  • My ears are “close to their final position” which is a relief because having them move all over the the place on me while I grow up would have been really awkward.  Adolescence will be weird enough without being known as the crazy, ear moving freak.

That is really all I’ve got for now.  Things are starting to get a little more boring in here.  112 days down, 168 to go.
