Coming down to the wire, your baby weighs in at around seven to eight pounds and measures 19 to 21 inches. Those measurements won’t change much from now on, but his brain is still growing at an astonishing rate, a pace that will continue for the first three years of life. His pink skin has now turned whitish (even babies who’ll eventually have darker skin appear whitish now — they haven’t yet developed pigment).
Exactly one week to go! Obviously this means little as Parker basically is the one who decides when to be born into the world, but to be one week away from the due date is quite exciting.
This week promises to be busy, with final preparations to move into the new place Thursday and Friday.
