This week baby is the size of a lemon...baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb. Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb. In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces.
Below are some photos of my first sweet baby...from about a year ago this month...looking at these just amazes me at how much he has changed in such a short time...his looks at least...he continues to be super sweet and cuddly. I think he is taking after his dad in that he hates to get into trouble to displease you and often a firm 'No' is enough to get to him. Other times he is like a crazy banshee.
