23 weeks...

The squirming little man is now at 23 weeks...here is what is going on...from babycenter.com:

How your baby's growing:

Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

He should be over a foot long now and over a pound.  I have been feeling more defined movements from him in the last few days.  The other night I felt like my stomach was a water bed and that D man was doing the worm on the bed.  It was CRAZY!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE feeling him move and I freak out if I don't feel him for awhile.  I felt him the last 30 minutes or so...I have noticed after I eat he gets a little more active.  I wonder if he is going to be a healthy eater?

Anyway - here is a belly shot at 23 weeks.  I have about outgrown this shirt...it is one of my favorites...it is really soft cotton and it is sooo comfy.
