6 Months!

6 months, wow! Four more months to go. If you are thinking wait, that's a total of 10 months check this out and you can call it what you want to call it..

Either way, 16 weeks will be here quick! Not much new this week although Kyle is finally feeling Baby Girl regularly. She even kicked him in the head this week and no I didn't tell her to :) Her kicks are becoming stronger - you can actually see my belly jump if you watch closely. Here is what else she is up to this week.

Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts her at just over a pound. Since she's almost a foot long, she cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but her body is filling out proportionally and she'll soon start to plump up. Her brain is also growing quickly now, and her taste buds are continuing to develop. Her lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help her air sacs inflate once she hits the outside world. Her skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

** Note on the photo, at this stage they have quit doing the week by week photo so we are down to monthly fruits/veggies. The dimensions are representative of what she will be at the end of the month.
