33 Weeks

Yesterday, Brycen celebrated his 33rd week (gestational)! So now we can say that we have a little more than 6 weeks!!! Here is what the growing boy is doing this week.

This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

I went to Yucca Valley today with Christina. We just went to two stores, but it was so nice just to get out out of the house for a little bit and have a little time for myself. I know that with almost 2 kids, the time will be far and few in between. So I will take what I can get :)
One of the stores we went to was a Mexican market that has groceries and meats. Christina and Heath are cooking out on Halloween and she swears by their carne asada. I can't wait to try it! Anyways, while we were there I was on a search for this Mexican Coca Cola. They had a few bottles, so I bought 4. I, of course, didn't want to buy just one, in case I loved it. But I didn't want to buy too many-- yeah right. :) Anyways, it is soooo good! Such a sweeter, cleaner taste in my opinion. I might have to stop in there every now and again and stock up, lol.
Tonight we are having breakfast for dinner. Not the usual breakfast, more of the "breakfast of champions". Steak omelets and hashbrowns-- one of Robert's favorites. We will see if I can beat IHOP's.
