Congratulations! You’ve got what is officially considered a full-term baby, even with three weeks to go. That doesn’t mean he’s finished growing — in fact, he’s still packing on about a half pound a week (at this age, the average fetus weighs about 6.5 pounds). Right now, your little superstar is busy rehearsing for his big debut, inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid (to get the lungs ready for that first breath), sucking his thumb (to prepare for that first suckle of milk), blinking, and turning from side to side.
Well, Parker is exactly three weeks from arrival. In honor of the impending arrival, we installed the car seat bases this past weekend.
This weekend is our ‘babymoon’, i.e. a last hoorah before our time (including our dog’s) is consumed with a baby.
