Maternity clothes?: Yep, very comfortable maternity clothes at that :-)
Best moment this week: BK got to support his Daddy at his first MiniTHON at Central! We lasted for part of the time, but next year, when he's an outside baby, we may even get him a personalized onesie to wear!

What is baby up to?: From What to Expect When You're Expecting: "Your baby is growing by leaps and bounds, reaching nine inches in length and passing the pound and a half mark. Under his skin, capillaries are forming and filling with blood and by week's end, air sacs (also lined with capillaries) will develop in his 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 vocal chords are getting ready to roar."
