soooo im officially 6 months. that’s like mind boggling. we’re 2/3 of the way there already. O_O checkpoint reached. time to put things into high gear. we’ve been looking into places we want to move to and i’ve been actively planning out the details of both baby showers. plus thinking about graduation and trying to iron out the registry items and what we want her room to look like. i mean i know she’s going to be sleeping in our room but i want her to have her own room so we can put all the other stuff in there. plus i want to decorate it lol.
sooo my app says that my little girl has gained about 4 oz since just last week! she’s just over a lb and almost a foot long. they say she will start to plump up now, and her brain is growing quickly and her taste buds are continuing to develop. her lungs are developing branches of the respiratory system and her skin will be changing soon to be less translucent. she’s starting to look more like the little princess from my dreams.
