My Precious Little Grandson, Marcus, Is 24 Weeks Along Today!

Parents, Garrett and Jackie, are doing really well.  Jackie is nesting like crazy and prepping for the little one to arrive.  I have to get on her from time to time as she tries to do too much herself.  Do you hear me NOW, Jacqueline??  ;o)

She has the most precious little baby bump....Marcus is growing fast!  I promise to have new pictures of the parents for next week's blog post since I have gotten complaints!!  ;o)

As for my little bundle of joy...Here is the scoop on his progress from

Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound.

Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up.

His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop.

His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world.

His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

Take a look at the baby's progress from
