27 Weeks

So I'm still hanging in there! I find myself waddling more and more. My belly is really popping out. At the store, the cash register drawer opens automatically when I am ringing up a sale and it surprises me every time and bumps me in the belly!

This week the baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with his legs extended. He's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, baby Micah's brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were to be born now. (So CRAZY) I am trying to do my best to keep him inside for the time being. He has a lot of developing left to do and I am the safest and best place for him. I am in no rush.

I can assure you that baby Micah is very active! His kicks literally rock my whole world. I cannot ignore them. Yesterday in church they were especially strong. I could not keep from giggling out loud! I had Phil put his hand on my belly and he was alarmed by a punch and started laughing too.

The best part of my day is right before Luke goes to bed. I rock Luke and sing to him before putting him in his bed. It is amazing to be able to rock BOTH of my boys at the same time. I treasure these moments because that is the kind of memory that you want to hang onto as a parent. As we are rocking I picture in my mind going to Luke's basketball games etc. (in the future) and feeling so proud. I know that in those moments I will flash back to these special times. They will not always want to rock and sing with mom. I am alright knowing that just makes the memories all the more special!
