Mom says that I am 31 weeks old now and that I weigh as much as a large coconut.
Unlike last week though, mom liked this comparison, since she LOVES coconut. She loves it so much that after she read this, she went right into the kitchen and made coconut macaroons–and ate a bunch! I can tell that I am going to love coconut, too, especially if it tastes as good as those macaroons did–YUM!
Room in here is getting pretty tight, and I’m noticing that when I look around, that my arms and legs are getting fatter. Mom says that over the next nine weeks, I am going to plump up, gaining between three and five pounds. I’ve also noticed that my skin is getting less see-through. It’s crazy, but I’m seeing changes everyday. I’m not sure, but I think that I’m getting close to the time when I enter the world!
Dad keeps teasing mom that I’m going to be a big boy when I come out. He says that since he was over nine pounds, that probably means that I will be, too. I can’t imagine getting that big, mostly because I’m not sure how nine pounds of me is going to fit in here–or come out. Actually, I don’t even know how I’m going to come out…hopefully I won’t get too big and get stuck in here!
