Little Baby Thornton - Week 22

Wow. We are so excited to find out that we're having a girl!! Annie continues to grow and should be about 11 inches long and 1 pound. On another note, Week 22 holds a lot of changes for the mother. For all of you who are dying to know, and I know that's most of you, below is a list of things many women experience around Week 22. FYI - Shannon has not exhibited all of these, but has some:

• Thicker, more lustrous hair
• Increased body hair
• Faster-growing fingernails
• Skin changes
• Stretch marks
• Skin discolorations
• Larger feet

Wow, what women go through for their children!! Way to go babe and keep up the good work :)

On Tuesday morning, Michael and I went to the hospital for the 20 week sonogram. The baby was all curled up and so it took about 45 minutes until they were able to tell us it was a girl. However, they were able to measure everything and get good pictures. We got to see her holding her hands, rubbing her eyes and( I am not gonna lie, it looked like she was picking her nose at one point). One of the coolest things was that after they measured all the bones they were able to calculate her weight! She only weighs 10 ounces right now, but will grow rapidly from now on. We are so excited to be having a little baby girl and can't wait until June!
