I am a human commode

You turn 16 weeks tomorrow, can you believe it?

You've got nails that are well formed, you're growing fine hair all over, and are peeing every 45 minutes or so. And then drinking it all in, while practising swallowing and breathing movements. Sounds kinda icky ifyou think about it, but hey, it's all sterile and I guess we've all gone through that phase ourselves.. in utero, that is. Hence I am a walking human bathroom.

I'm still not sure if I'm making up these little vibrations I THINK I feel down there, or if it's you doing your tai qi exercises.. It's probably my imagination running away with me coz I want to feel you moving so badly.

My tummy's finally got a little bit more of a significant swell to it, and today someone said I was finally starting to look a little pregnant. Maybe it was the sweater I was wearing though. It's been a cold couple of days. But it's nice to know you are nice and warm and snuggly IN ME. Now THAT is totally mind blowing. Something IN ME. Living. Growing.....Peeing.

You're about 4.5 - 4.8 inches long now and about the size of a grapefruit. If you're anything like the grapefruits your daddy and I eat, you're BIG!

Hey Lil'Noodler! This is your uncle jeff all the way in Georgia. We are not related by blood physically, but we are related by THE blood spiritually. Your cousin here was just born around 390 days ago, so I am just as excited for you and mommy because I got to experience some of the things your dad is going through with you two. We are excited that you are growing so healthy and strong and pray for your protection daily. Because of your mommy and daddy, I know God has BIG plans for you and that you will make us all proud. I might not be able to meet you right away like real family, but know you have family where ever you go...
