So we're going to need a bigger car...

Last week, I had a mad craving for greasy fried green tomatoes.

I knew there must be a good reason for it.

Elijah is a big brother.

I'm due on April 8th, 2007, which puts me currently at 6-1/2 weeks. The baby's tiny heart is already beating!

Here's a description of what's going on with our baby right now, taken from FitPregnancy.com:

"Your baby enters its second month of development, weighing no more than a chocolate chip or a berry. It's about five to thirteen millimeters long (less than half an inch), and weighs less than a gram (0.8g), or less than one-twentieth of an ounce.

The human blueprints are already visible. Your child still has a tail but is also beginning to form a digestive tract, lungs, nostrils, hands and feet, and a bump of a mouth. The liver, tongue, and lenses of your baby's eyes are forming. There are beds for your baby's fingernails, and the buds of teeth are forming in the gums.

If you could take a picture, your baby would look more like a baby and less like a reptile. The baby's nerve channels and muscles are connecting, and the body can wiggle when the cells communicate.

In just two days, from days thirty-one to thirty-three, the brain becomes one-quarter larger. If you were to have an ultrasound, it would be able to detect the beating heart, which shows up looking like a tiny flashing light."


We need a nickname for the chocolate-chip sized person. Any suggestions?

I have a 3.5-lb. bag of Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips. Ghirardelli in your belly! That would be more of a title than a nickname.

lisa / a.susie / others,
we are hoping to leave georgia, to stay with the roselles on August 25th or 26th. it depends on a lot of things working out though. we're not sure how the visit will be broken up between the two families yet, but we will stay with the roselles first. we're hoping to be at church (father's love) for three sundays.

a. susie,
wow, that's great that jamie and kelly are expecting! i know they've been trying for a while.

YAY! I've known for a few days now, and we were all expecting it any way. In fact, Grace and I had just been talking about when you would have another one.

Just so you know, I'm going to call It Gumbi, and I'm not sure why. I don't care what you name It, but right now, it's Gumbi to me.

Love,
Joy

And there's a movie called "Fried Green Tomatoes." Have you watched it? Cause Grace and I did, and it's a good movie (although sad).

Dear Faith and Greg,

Sorry this wasn't posted sooner, but CONGRATULATIONS! I'm very excited for you guys and I'm praying for this hectic time in your lives. I hope moving plans are going well. I really wished I could have seen you guys when you visited the Roselles, but I'll be back in school when you guys are there. I was just up there for a couple of days and had a crazy good time. Hope all is well! Love you =)
