What I’m excited about? Her arrival!!! I got to go meet sweet baby Yates Dover yesterday. At only 3 days old, he's the smallest thing to ever capture my heart. Suzy had a wonderfully easy labor and delivery story to share with me and helped calm my nerves on some things. Holding that tiny angel made me SOOOO anxious and excited for February to get here!!! I cannot wait!

What I’m excited about? Seeing what she looks like!
He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

What I’m excited about? working on her nursery!! it's so cool to see it coming along
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
