Baby Kirk has doubled in size since last week - now a whopping 1/2 inch long, or the size of a blueberry! Hands and feet are emerging from arms & legs, but look more like paddles at this point.
As far as momma goes - I have 10% more blood volume than a month ago, and my (earmuffs for the boys) *uterus has doubled in size - which accounts for the constant trips to the restroom* (remove earmuffs). I have been absolutely exhausted with working 3 12 hr shifts a week. And the nausea has intensified. I am mourning the fact that coffee is now officially repulsive to me (this happened with Belle as well!). The smell is just too much. But all in all, we're hanging in there!
Big sissy has been talking to baby. This morning I asked her if she wanted to play with her toys with the new baby. "Yes, I play with our baby".
"Can the new baby sleep with you in your bed?"
"What should we name our baby?"
"Ummmm... Baby Butter."
I figured out 15 minutes later she was most likely saying, "Baby Brother", but it was funny while it lasted!
