Baby Shopping, Lunch and then the Purse Party. We had a ball looking at TINY baby things and then eating HUGE pieces of cake at Ed's Deli and Esther tempted all of us with beautiful purses.

HAND ME DOWNS!!!! YEAH!!!!! I am so thankful for hand me downs. Plankton is going to be one well dressed baby and he is "going green" without evening knowing it. Baby clothing recycles so well....

Gay Bingo! A bunch of us dressed up for "Double Wide, one man's trash is another man's treasure" It's bingo with a twist! It was HILARIOUS and I can't wait to go I look trashy or what? (yes the cigarettes are CANDY....duh)

Oh and here is what Plankton is up to:
Your baby measures about 7.6 inches (19.3cm) and weighs about 12.3 ounces (349g). The muscles are getting stronger every week now, and the eyelids and eyebrows are developed. Your baby's acrobatics are pretty constant, and since he responds to sound, rhythm and melody, you can try singing and talking to him. After he's born, the same sounds will soothe him.

This week Baby Plankton is about 5.6 (14.2cm) to 6.4 inches (16.3cm) from crown to rump and weighs about 9 ounces (255g). He can hear sounds by now -- voices, heart and stomach growling, as well as sounds outside Mamma's body. He will cover his ears with its hands if a loud sound is made near by, and it may even become startled and "jump." The baby is moving often, too -- twisting, turning, wiggling, punching and kicking.

How cute is that?

We went out shopping today, with help from several of Plankton's "Aunties".....found WAY TOO MANY cute things. A lovely crib, the stroller I have wanted to see in person and clothing so small and adorable it nearly made me cry.

But, I am now EXHAUSTED, achy and have a MEAN case of heartburn.....time for mommy to take a NAP and have a cup of ginger tea.

The sonogram was amazing! Plankton stayed still while his head was measured and kicked his feet so that we could get a picture.....and then he held on to his privates for several minutes (dad says this makes him HIS BOY).....So we included all the "shy baby" votes into the WINNER pool as we thought for a while we might not find out and then he FLASHED US at the last second :-)
Yes, this is Jason's son for sure!

There were 19 "correct" guesses and our winners are:

Tasha for the Knitter Prize
Jim (Jason's Dad) and he refused both prizes so I pulled one more....
Cindy for the Starbucks Card

We are THRILLED and could not be more excited. I feel some shopping in our future.....heh heh heh....

Let the knitting begin!
