S and I have been in one of those moods lately that causes us to go crazy working on the house. This weekend’s project, paint the patio set that we got from Mimi. In my pregnant state, I was confined to paint stripping duty which I only did while wearing a mask. S did all the spray painting. Then we worked on the landscaping a little bit. We have one more big project in the back that we need to do but won’t be completing until the fence is complete. Our neighbors are working on that now.
At 24 weeks, this is what “What To Expect When Expecting” is saying about our baby. “Your baby is about eight and a half inches long and weighs one and a half pounds, gaining steadily at a rate of six ounces per week. Much of that weight comes from accumulating baby fat, as well as from growing organs, bones, and muscle. Those little ears of hers are getting sharper and can hear very loud sounds, from a yapping dog to a jackhammer. Also by now, that fabulous face is almost fully formed, complete with eyelashes, eyebrows, and hair. Is your baby a brunette, a blonde, or a redhead? Actually, right now her locks are white since there’s no pigment yet.”
