My Little Grandbaby is 16 Weeks Along Today!!

The proud parents, Garrett and Jackie are doing very well....Our little grandbaby bundle will arrive in April 2010!

Jackie is back from out-of-town and is adorable as ever!  She has grown her little baby bump a lot!  She and Garrett were over last night for Cameron's 24th Birthday (my youngest son).

How your baby's growing:
Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too.

The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.
Here is a look into the baby's progress:
