17 weeks

happy 17 weeks to me!

just for fun, i looked up my post from when i was 17 weeks with hendrix, and was amused to find that was also the week that i first started feeling his movements.  

the same has been true with miss blaire this week.  i had felt some little flutters a couple weeks back, but was really not sure if it was gas or movements; this week those flutters were more defined and  i can definitely pinpoint them as 'baby'.

i notice it the most when i lay day in bed at night (but i wonder if that has more to do with being a time of day that i actually slow down and can pay attention in contrast to my bustling days, or if that is when she decides to be the most active). i also notice more movements right after i drink ice cold water.

looks like now, blaire should be about 5 ounces and 5 inches long.  she is growing like a weed, and this week her skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone.  i remain so in awe of how quickly all the body parts and systems develope....right now she is a perfectly formed little baby, and just needs to spend more weeks and months growing ;)

we love you so much, sweet girl!

oh, and hendrix has learned the word 'sister' this week.  i love being able to change my verbage from 'teh baby in mommy's tummy' to 'your little sister' when we talk about her.  and i am also trying to get used to saying, my children.  such a fun and big change!  ;)
