What is baby up to?: From What to Expect When You're Expecting: "Your baby now weighs in at a whopping three to five ounces, and they're four to five inches in length. The bones that are now in place in their ears means they can probably hear your voice as you talk to your partner and pals and sing in the car. While they're getting used to your voice, the tiny muscles in their body, especially the ones in their back, are gaining strength, so they can straighten out a little more. And thanks to his developing facial muscles, your baby is capable of making a few expressive frowns and squints, even at this early stage. (Don’t worry, those frowns have nothing to do with the sound of your voice!) And their eyes are finally working, making small side-to-side movements and perceiving light (although the eyelids are still sealed). "
