You are about the size of a blueberry now, and your arms and legs have started to grow. I started looking at nursery furniture. I’m leaning towards Dumbo.

I’ve been sleeping a lot, and had a bit more nausea this week–the books say that’s a good sign; it means you’re growing well.

I’ve been waiting for pregnancy cravings, but I haven’t wanted anything weird yet. I mostly just want dinner-type foods. This week, I’ve been especially interested in steamed broccoli with baked red potatoes…and nachos. I’m also eating more protein–sometimes eggs, sometimes bean burritos from Taco Bell or Amy’s.

Your Aunt Alexis* asked if I plan to sing to you. You don’t have ears quite yet, but I do sing.
