Our Pumpkin is a Chinese Cabbage (28 weeks)

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world. (

Emery has become quite the little kicker in her 28 weeks, especially in the morning and evenings. This morning she decided to get going at 5 and went hot and heavy for a good 1/2 hour nonstop! Doesn't she know I'm still on summer break??? ;o) Kidding of course, I wouldn't change it. Chase has also finally felt her kick, in fact he has felt her several times including the time he was laying in my lap and she kicked him on the back of his head. He thinks it's hilarious, I wonder if he really "gets" it. I think he does!

Saturday at 1:00 we have our 3D/4D ultrasound and I can't wait!!! I'm not sure who is more excited out of our bunch. I am doing it at Peek A Baby and they have a big screen in the room so everyone isn't trying to watch the tiny computer screen... did I mention I can't wait????

On other news, I won a free pack of write-on SafetyTats which is pretty awesome! They had a contest and picked 20 entries (comments) out of over 60 and mine was one of them. Totally cool! Also, Chase earned his new belt (green stripe) at karate last night, so look for that post/pics soon! Guess I should also get a new belly pic going since my husband told me that my belly is huge last night when we were going to bed... thanks honey, I know you meant it in a good way and I love you too!!!
