It's bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!!!

So Brycen, what are you up to these days???

Here is Babycenter's description of the little guy this week! I think it is so neat that I can compare him to a fruit! Ha! I will try and do this from now on.

Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

On other news... I give Thompson a C- on his potty training so far. He went pee-pee in the potty twice yesterday. And each time he was rewarded with M&M's. (Well the first time we had to improvise b/c dad ate the candy the night before, so blueberries was our "candy".) I just really need to trust him that he does need to go when he tells me and not just assume he wants more candy. Oh well. We have a long ways until we are potty trained. But hey, Rome wasn't built in a day, right?! I sure wish it was...
