33 weeks!

6 Dec

This week, my brother continues to grow. The doctor told Mom and Dad last week that he was 4 lbs and 13 oz and would grow about a half a pound a week until he is born. That makes him just over 5 lbs this week! According to the baby center, he’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. Mom continues to have some braxton hicks contractions and is has some lower back pain. She keeps waking me up in the middle of the night — I miss the days when she slept through the night!
This week, it was pretty low key around our house. Mom and Dad went to babysit Lila on Friday night. Cousin Lila is a great sleeper! She did not make a peep after Aunt Caroline and Uncle Mike put her down to sleep. Mom and Dad can only hope that my brother will be as good as a sleeper as Cousin Lila is!

On Saturday, Mom and Dad went to breakfast with Barb and Len at the Four Season’s and then headed to Infant CPR and Child Safety at the hospital my brother will be born at, Prentice. They learned a lot and are even getting the car seat inspected at the Police Station on Wednesday. After napping for most of the afternoon, Mom and Dad went to Nicole and Dana’s for a holiday party. On Sunday, Mom and Dad had brunch with Jessica and Matt at Uncommon Ground and then napped the rest of the day. It was very relaxing!
It’s getting pretty late, so I’m off to bed and to sniff my butt!
