Week 22 Baby Update...

At our ultrasound the other day the technician measured Lil Arroyo to be about a foot long and almost 1 lb!  At week 22 his fingernails are almost fully grown and his organ systems are becoming more functional and specialized.  He has a distinct pair of lips (we saw that on the ultrasounds!) and his first canines and molars are developing below his gum line.  He looks like a miniature newborn!  Blood is traveling through the umbilical cord at 4 miles an hour, fueling his growth with oxygen and nutrients.  No wonder I'm tired!
