16 Weeks! (4 months)

Right now, baby is about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erectthan it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.

Mama at 16 weeks, cookin' our little avocado!

Im feeling great! 2nd trimester and I get along very well!! This week I was craving strawberry Jell-o! :) 

Glory to God for this amazing work in us! Sam and I were talking a fews days ago about how blessed we are. We have a wonderful home that we love and can see our kids growing up in, amazing family and friends who love and support us, a marriage that God has given us to bless us and be a blessing to others, and now a little one on the way!  It is true to say that "our cup overflowth!"
