Sleep: I wish, poor Michael wakes up wondering if he made me mad but finds me downstairs on the couch because I couldnt sleep.
Best moment this week?: I would have to say stopping by James Moore and seeing everyone I used to work with and having them see the belly and hug me and congratulate me even more, it may not have a lot to do with the baby, but they were all such a massive part of my life when it came to just love and support that seeing them made me a happy mommy!!

Being that I am just overwhelmed by the amazingness that God has happening in my in my big/little belly, I am in awe of the description of what is happening this week! I am still so grateful and floored that God would bless Michael and I with this beautiful gift, a gift we never dreamed could or would happen and were completely fine with trusting in our Savior for adoption one day. This makes me even more grately to see what is hapening with my little sweet peanut inside my ever growing stomach! God is so amazingly merciful and gracious, and this baby just like Michael is once again a sweet testimony of his love, grace, and sweet forgiveness! I am so blessed!
The bones that are now in place in his ears means he can probably hear your voice as you talk to your partner and pals and sing in the car. While he’s getting used to your voice, the tiny muscles in his body, especially the ones in his back, are gaining strength, so he can straighten out a little more. And thanks to his developing facial muscles, your baby is capable of making a few expressive frowns and squints, even at this early stage. (Don’t worry, those frowns have nothing to do with the sound of your voice!) And his eyes are finally working, making small side-to-side movements and perceiving light (although the eyelids are still sealed). Peekaboo!
