Your little doll-sized babe is about to chub up a bit.

Um. Guess it’s a good thing we’re not having a boy? You’ll get that joke later on in life, future baby girl.

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 [or your cat, A.J.] barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

I had to paste that quote above from The Baby Center because they actually refer to the future baby as a “she”. So you are currently a mango-sized thing little girl. Feels like we’re going backwards…the other week you were a spaghetti squash. Doesn’t that seem longer than a mango? I don’t understand the scales of measurement here. But my are you kicking up a storm more than any mango can! Is that you doing the Irish jig in there? Perhaps the West Indian shuffle? Well stop it! Any West Indian dance movements in there is forbidden! Have you seen a West Indian girl dance? Oi vey! All that bumping and grinding is way too provocative.

Apparently you can hear sounds more than ever since conception. We have already given you Howard Stern (whom you probably consider more of a father than me right now since I don’t talk much to mommy’s tummy- I mean it just feels weird. What am I going to say to you whilst by mommy’s tummy? Carry on a convo about my menial tasks and the latest episode of the Big Bang Theory? I can only tell you so much about the Yankees and their greatness. Wow that was a lot to put in parentheses), Blink 182, Britney Spears…perhaps it’s time to introduce you more to your furry sister A.J. the cat. The first time she meowed at mommy’s tummy you actually kicked, leading me to believe you’re as annoyed by the cat as me.

Mommy is definitely feeling your fat growing in as the weight has been slowing her down more as of late. She even wears her glasses more over contact lenses so that she can sneak in naps on the train ride in. So cute the two of you napping!
