Week 22

About.com has a nice section on pregnancy that outlines weekly the changes that are happening in the baby. We are on week 22 and the entry looks like this:

The baby is getting bigger and continuing to practice for extrauterine life. This week your baby has developed eyebrows! S/he weighs about 15 ounces (425 grams) and is 27.5 cms or 10.8 inches total length!

At 20 weeks we went to the Dr. and the baby was about 10 ounces and 10 inches long. It grows pretty fast. Amy and I are hoping that since it is a boy it will come out looking like me. Lucky for him though Amy's father still has plenty of hair so maybe he will get to forego the balding expereince.

At 10 inches long you wouldn't expect him to be very strong but he has begun kicking hard enough that it makes Amy move now. I still enjoy feeling the kicks whenever I can.

Sometimes babies begin life bald also. However, I am sure your baby will have plenty of hair, and lets hope he keeps it late in life. Anyway Clint, bald suits you. (Your mom can't help but think so!)

THe best news is the baby is so active. That is really exciting for you both!
