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.
