My Little Grandbaby, Marcus Victor Perea, is 20 Weeks Along Today!!

This week's article is a little special...Not that the others weren't  ;o)  Marcus is such a cutie!  He performed for his Daddy, my son Garrett, the other night by kicking his Momma hard enough for his Daddy to feel it!!  That is a powerful kick for such a little guy that only weighed about 10 ounces at the time!

Yesterday, Marcus and his Momma made their modeling debut...Jackie's doctor was hosting a training session put on by the manufacturer of a special Sonogram Machine and asked if Jackie and Marcus would be their model for the training session.  Why did he ask Jackie and Marcus?

Because Marcus was such a cooperative baby the first time, Jackie is a small little thing and together they made it easy to get good shots of Marcus.  Well, Marcus decided to misbehave yesterday and was a naughty little boy.  He refused to cooperate by holding still when they needed him to and refused to move around when they wanted him to!  LOL  He also buried his little face into his Momma....Camera shy???

Good news, they are invited back at a future date to try again...Let's hope Marcus decides to play along this time.

Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)

He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).
