16 weeks...

Not a ton to say, but I do have pictures! We did finish our registry at Babies R Us Sunday and only have a couple more things to check out at Target. Feel free to browse, maybe I've missed something or maybe you're looking for ideas for your own registry... links are to the right.

Before I share the photos I'll share some info about the growing baby that I got from Baby Center....

Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's 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 erect than 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.

Oh and I think I felt him move but not sure... but I could start feeling him more regularly now! So excited!!!

Here's what you've been waiting for... and I've been nervous lately that he's not growing... look at me!
