It's an Onion!

Baby Larson is now the size of an onion as I enter my 17th week of pregnancy! Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone. And fat is finally accumulating around it. His/her umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger. Also, Baby Larson's finger and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints! I'm still waiting to feel Baby Larson move and I have been reading to him/her often. We have gone through some nursery rhymes, The Little Engine That Could and Where the Wild Things Are. As for me, I am definitely showing more this week. And my jeans are starting to feel a little snug (even with the rubber band trick). After I took Chauncey on a walk, I had to get out of my jeans and into my comfy velour stretchy pants (keyword being "stretchy"). I might have to wear this pants everyday. My mom and I went looking at cribs and other baby furniture yesterday. It's so fun to start thinking about the nursery. I also found a bedding that I really like that could work for either a boy or a girl. Only six more days until we find out Baby Larson's gender (if Baby Larson is not modest)! Do you have a guess on whether we will be joining Team Blue or Team Pink???


  1. Hooray for a baby bump! We can't wait to find out if you're having a boy or a girl. I think you're joining Team Pink, but Kyra will happily welcome a girl or boy playmate!
