Jackie and Garrett seem to ge more excited every week!  Jackie, my friend Jaymie and I went maternity clothes shopping last week!  We got some adorable items for Jackie to wear to work  ;o)  I am hoping to have some newer pictures of Jackie for future blog posts.  My little grandbaby is now 18 weeks along as of Friday, October 30, 2009!

How your baby's growing:

Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.

Here is a peek at the baby's progress:
