Our friends, Daniel and Breann White, just had a baby this past Tuesday. Chris and I went to see them in the hospital and I have to say-Chris makes me laugh. Baby Devin was crying and after being passed around to quite a few of us, he ended up with Chris who put him to sleep in literally like 3 minutes! Later that night, Chris started "bragging" about it :) He was so excited that he put Devin to sleep so fast! I just laughed and laughed and said "you just wait until Baby Bean gets here-then we'll see how well those skills work! :) I love talking about our family with Chris-he is so ready to be a dad! He's going to be so good at it too! He LOVES kids! I love watching him with the kids in our church. They just swarm him it seems! He's definitely going to be a great Father! I'm excited for that day!
So here's the update on Baby Bean's approximates and latest development (compliments of whattoexpect.com): Baby bean is growing by leaps and bounds, reaching nine inches in length and passing the pound and a half mark. Under his/her skin, capillaries are forming and filling with blood and by week's end, air sacs (also lined with capillaries) will develop in his/her lungs, getting them ready for that first breath. Mind you, those lungs aren't ready for prime time just yet — but they are developing surfactant, a substance that will help them expand after birth. And speaking of breathing, your baby's tiny nostrils, which have been plugged up until now, are starting to open, and his/her vocal chords are getting ready to roar.
