Our Pumpkin is a Papaya! (22 weeks) - Also Emery's new stuff!!!

Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop. (

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily. (

Hmmmm, the bump doesn't do another update until like 25 weeks so I guess we'll have a repeat next week or I'll have to find a size comparison on another site. Not much to report, just taking it one day at a time. I always love summer, but the days tend to go by slow (not that I am wishing it away by any means)! Emery is kicking more and more, still pretty low. Hoping she'll move it up some and get a little harder so Jeff can feel it soon! We picked up a new stroller and ordered her furniture (it should be in by July 1st). We've also picked out her car seat and bedding. I have ordered the valance so we could get her room painted and will probably pick up the rest of the bedding in the next week or two. Hard to believe I'm 22 weeks already!

You are so ahead of the game. I have less than 9 weeks and haven't begun to get things ready. I just love to procrastinate!

Emery is one lucky little girl - everything is cute and what I would pick if I knew this baby was a girl!
