23 weeks

So we have reached the point where the Bump (the website that offers the fruit comparison) must have run out of fruit examples because baby will be a papaya for weeks 21-24.

Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.

We decided on a name; Benjamin Thomas. He isn't named after anyone particular, we just liked the name. It was actually pretty easy to decide! It fit, just like when I found my wedding dress, I knew that this was the one!

Daddy and I are doing great, busy trying to get the house ready for Benjamin (see his room pictures below). There is so much to do! Benjamin loves to kick and has fun showing off his flips and kicks to us. Watching my belly move is the strangest and coolest thing ever! Alan are amazed every time!

That is all for now!
