My Little Bugaboo Was 34 Weeks Along Last Friday, February 19th!!

Hey Grandbaby followers!!  I am so sorry I am late on Marcus' updates for those of you that really want to follow his progress.  Nana has been so busy with our companies, Soapies Supplies and Dead End Pest Control, lately that I have, once again, neglected my duties here in Blogland  ;o(

Jackie and Marcus are doing very well...I am hoping for current pictures soon!  Garrett is doing very well also...Working hard in college and interviewing with The Mac Store.  Congrats to Garrett...He was just hired by The Mac Store in the Biltmore area of Phoenix just the other day!!

Back to my Bugaboo....He is growing and squirming and having a great time astonishing his parents with all of his tumbling and acrobatic feats in his safe Mommie Tummy Haven.

Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. His fat layers — which will help regulate his body temperature once he's born — are filling him out, making him rounder.

His skin is also smoother than ever. His central nervous system is maturing and his lungs are continuing to mature as well.

If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine.

They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.

How does Marcus look now?  Progress of the baby, curtesy of
Stay tuned for this week's update (35 Weeks Along) tomorrow!!!


  1. Time is going by so quickly! Soon, you will be holding baby Marcus, and he will recognize your voice. :-)

  2. Ohhhh...I can't wait!! I have been hoping and dreaming of a grandbaby for 9 years ;o) I cannot wait to touch him and smell his little baby smells ;o)
