I am 23 weeks today. This week has been really good. Nothing new to report. Just relaxing after the hustle and bustle of Christmas, and now I’m looking forward to a quiet New Year’s Eve at home with my family.
Baby girl is still moving around almost constantly in my tummy, and she has hiccups all the time it seems. Faith talks about her baby sister ALL the time. She hugs and kisses my belly throughout the day. She really is very excited; more excited than I thought she’d be for a 3 year old. She talks about how she is going to show baby sis all her toys, and play with her. She wants to help feed her and give her a bath. She says she wants to help her learn to walk. She is always talking about the things she wants to do with her sister. She said I need to save her clothes when she grows out of them and give it to baby sis :) It’s amazing to me just how much she’s thinking into the future when it comes to her new sister. I’m touched, and so excited for her. She is already in love with her.

She insisted she look like a dinosaur for this week’s pic.
What baby looks like at 23 weeks…
Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she’s more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about the size of a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby’s increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze her when she hears them outside the womb.
Here is a few end-of-the-year selfies! Everyone have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve, and I’ll see you next year! ;)
