My Precious Little Grandbaby, Marcus, Is 22 Weeks Along Today!
Well....Marcus seemed to really enjoy his first Thanksgiving! He sqirmed like a little Bugaboo for his Nana after dinner! Garrett and Jackie are doing very well....Garrett is very attentive to Jackie, even tucks her into bed every night, and Jackie is showing all of the "mommie" signs...she is so maternal. Her baby bump is soooo cute and getting bigger every day. She is still under by eight pounds but she is eating really well....Not an ounce of fat on her...just all baby.
You can see how much she loves little Marcus already.....She made me cry the other day when she was talking and referred to him as "my son". I had never heard her say that before and I was soooo touched by it...Silly Nana cries about everything regarding this little bugger.
At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.
