Rule of Fives

Baby Wade is growing fast this week. It is 5 inches long and 5 ounces. For those of you who are curious, five oz is approx the weight of a deck of cards or a Yoplait. Amazing to think that at the end of this whole thing, the weight will be some number of pounds plus 5 ounces-ish.

The fruit/veggie of the week is a turnip. We don't know how to prepare turnips, so we just hijacked one from the cooler at Safeway and took a picture at the grocery store. We replaced it, don't worry. The baby bump may actually be looking a bit like a bump this week!

We had a great report from the OB today. The heartbeat is strong and steady again at 150. It is music to our ears to hear that heartbeat. According to an old wives' tail (and my mom),  if the heartbeat is greater than 140 it's a girl, and if it's less than 140 it's a boy. We will have to see... it will be a Christmas surprise for sure!

In other news this week, my wonderful husband surprised me with a fun date last week to Cirque du Soleil! It was an absolutely amazing show, and we were stunned at what the human body can do! There is no way to put into words the stunts these people pull off.

We are having a baby shower tomorrow for my friend Sophie from work, so I must sign off now to begin the pink cupcake and watermelon baby buggy assembly. Pictures to follow.

Oh, and the Alaska pictures ARE coming. We are still sorting through =)

We love and miss you all! Heather, Mike, and the little Tyke
