My Grandbaby, Marcus Victor, Was 30 Weeks Along Friday!!

My beautiful daughter, Jackie, is doing very well....She continues to work and is nesting like crazy.  Garrett is in college now and looking for part-time work while chuggin' away at his Honey-Do List that needs to be completed before Baby Marcus arrives.

Time is really flying with the upcoming birth of Marcus....He is 30 weeks along and a very active little guy.  Jackie had to take a 3 hour Glucose Tolerance test yesterday and Marcus went "crazy" in her tummy once it hit his little system.

Here is the update on his progress curtesy of

How the baby's growing...

Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage).

A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him, but that volume will decrease as he gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus

His eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he's born, he'll keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means he can only make out objects a few inches from his face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)
