The baby is hefting up, weighing just over a pound this week. That means she is as heavy as (drum roll…) a large mango! For Eat Yo Baby, E made a salad with mangos in it, and Jeff made some kind of delicious latin-influenced dessert with baked mangos, cinnamon tortillas, and ice cream. A fetus never tasted so good. (Am I creeping you out with this yet? GET ON BOARD.)
And no, this isn’t the frame of the ultrasound that proves it.
I have to admit, I’m relieved we didn’t disappoint Nora. In fact, when we told her she was getting a little sister, she said, “It’s a girl! Just like I always DREAMED!” Plus, the new baby can share Nora’s room and use all the same baby stuff, so that will be handy. Go, team!
Our little blueberry-sized baby is getting hands and feet!
It’s a pretty big step up from a sesame seed to a lentil bean!
Nora: “One, two, three! Why are there three people in our family?”
Me: “How many do you think we should have?”
Nora: “I think we should have four.”
The story’s cuter if I just stop there, but…
Me: “Four? Would you like to have a new baby in our family?”
Nora: “Nope. We should get a grown-up lady.”
Me: “You mean like Aunt Sarah? Should she be in our family?”
Nora: “No. A different lady. Another mommy!”
So, that’s going to be tricky to explain to the bishop.
