Our latest appt.

Went to see the doctor on Thursday afternoon.  Mom and baby received a clean bill of health. Baby Brody is measuring right on, and Mommy is starting to gain weight.  I am in my 3rd trimester which is crazy to think about.  It has all gone so fast, and I know it will continue to do so.  Here is what babycenter.com says about where Brody should be:

"By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels.  He can blink his eyes, which now support lashes.  With his eyesight developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb.  He's also developing billions of neurons in his brain and adding more body fat in preparation for the outside world."

Brody sure isn't shy.  He is movin' and groovin' around in there.  Sometimes it feels as though his is doing "the worm" in my belly.  It is the weirdest thing.  Gabe's predicting he goes to USC and plays football for the Trojans, a kicker.  He is going to be the first kicker to enter the NFL draft after only 2 years of college and be drafted in the first round to the Dallas Cowboys.  In which he will win a Super Bowl by faking a field goal and throwing a touchdown to one of his wide receivers, leaving one second on the clock to win the game.  We are still unsure the team they will be playing, but Gabe is thinking an all Texas Super Bowl....Dallas vs. Houston. We are so proud of our unborn child!  And I am so proud of Gabe's creative imagination.  :)
