Little Baby Thornton - Week 19

Well, the baby is about 6 inches now, from head to "rump." I'm also very happy that everything should now be proportionate, the ears to the head, the legs and arms to the body, etc. etc. Other than lots of growth, the baby is also starting to develop important areas of the brain, designating areas for sight, smell and sound.

It's so cool. Shannon is still growing, which is awesome. We're both really excited and having a countdown of sorts until we find out whether it's a boy or a girl (9 days from today!!!!!). We'll be sure to let you all know as soon as we find out whether we're having a Clarke Michael or Annie.

Hope you're all well. We love you!

We're Watching...

Do you sometimes feel like someone is watching you? Bauer does. And rightfully so. Here is a picture taken just moments earlier. We have such a weird dog!!

Little Baby Thornton - Week 18

It's been a couple weeks. I know I'm slacking, but rather than go back and hash out what has already happened, I'm going to just keep going forward. Shannon and I were out in Utah for a while, so I haven't posted in a while.

This week is week 18 and it's crazy to think that in two weeks we'll find out if we're going to have a girl or a boy. Shannon is hoping for a girl and I'm hoping for a boy. Either way someone should be happy :) jk, of course both of us are super excited regardless.

The baby is now about 5.5 inches head to rump and FINALLY its' ears are in place. Yes, we've been waiting how many weeks now!! jk. Shannon is going through a lot of changes. Besides being more hungry and having growing pains, she's starting to show, which she is really excited about. I guess it's a big day when people start realizing that you're definitely pregnant and haven't just let yourself go.

Hope you all are doing well.
