Holy cow, I’m in my seventh month already! I have a feeling the time will continue to fly until January hits. Then, as usual, the last four – six weeks will drag along. I’m hoping it’s more like six weeks this time. As nice as it is to deliver a little baby (Rylee was 5lbs 5oz) it has to be nicer to deliver closer to your due date.
Squirt’s energy is surging, thanks to the formation of white fat deposits beneath the skin. Those kicks and jabs to the ribs are a good clue. It seems like there are some somersaults in there as well.
Squirt is also settling into sleep and waking cycles, though – as I’ve noticed – they don’t necessarily coincide with my own. Most of the time they happen around 9pm.
Also this month, all five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments.
