It looks like I got so caught up rambling about leash kids yesterday that I forgot to update you on how Baby Lump is doing this week! By the way, yesterday’s post seems to have sparked some pretty heated discussion in its comments section, and I hope I didn’t offend any of you former leash kids/parents. As Kristin pointed out, “To each his own.”
That said, Baby Lump is doing just great! This week, he/she should clock in at a whole foot long and about a pound and a quarter. Let’s see, what kind of food can we compare him/her to this week? Perhaps a $5 Footlong from Subway (stuffed with lots of meat and toppings). Except obviously my baby is priceless and a way better deal. Does anyone else now have that jingle stuck in their head?
Well, you will now.
Anyway, while Baby Lump is sans fat right now, apparently he/she will double in weight within the next four weeks. (Let’s hope I don’t do the same!) And although his/her eyelids are still sealed shut, Baby Lump is actually starting to make facial expressions such as squinting and frowning – probably when I catch James singing in the shower since now Baby Lump is capable of responding to sounds outside the womb.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go get this Subway jingle out of my head.
