17 Weeks...

My photographer fell asleep early last night. I will try to keep him up long enough tonight to get a picture!

How far along? 17 weeks
How big are the babies? Onions!
Best moment this week: I swear I'm feeling something in there...and I don't think it's gas this time
Symptoms: Sleepy and possible movement
Movement: Possibly!
Food cravings: Macaroni and cheese!
Genders: 1 week until we know, AHHH!
Milestones: Did I mention movement?

Development: Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.

Headlines from the week:

Newspaper circulation down 10.6%
The decline in US newspaper circulation is accelerating as the industry struggles with defections to the Internet and tumbling ad revenue.

Paranormal Activity is the #1 movie at the box office over the weekend

Weather today:
Intermittent Clouds, 55 Degrees
