Baby Brisket (this is now Jared's new name for our sweet Baby Sutherland) weighs as much as four oranges. (Length: over 16 inches, head to heel.)
This week, our baby measures over 16 inches long and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up.
Yesterday was our third birthing class and we got to tour the birthplace. We even got to swing by the nursery to take a look at the new babies. Loved it! Jared was suppose to wear the empathy belly but we ran out of time but our teacher said we always have next week! So expect that picture next week!
Each week at work we try and figure out which way he laying and today we decided that he is transverse with his butt on my right side. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow at 10:10 am so maybe she can confirm his position.
