Our Baby, The Rutabaga!

A GREAT website for both men and women to track the progress of their baby's growth is  BABYCENTER.COM!  My wife Erica got me into it during the very beginning of our pregnancy. Each week you get a few emails in regards to your baby's health and also great coupons and tips on being a parent-to-be.   Yesterday we got our "Week 25" email and this is an example of what the weekly emails look like.  Here is an  excerpt from Baby Center on the progress of our baby's growth:

” Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn’t much more than an average rutabaga, but she’s beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she’ll start to look more and more like a newborn. She’s also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you’d now be able to discern its color and texture.”

Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. Our information is designed to give you a general idea of your baby’s development.

See! Pretty cool emails to get every week and my favorite is watching my baby be compared to different pieces of fruits and vegetables, LOL.  Not quite sure I’ll ever eat a rutabaga but it’s neat my baby is now the size of one!
