Week 16: somersaults, facial expressions and adorable toes!

Week 16 - It went by fast so the blog update will too!

Baby size: Five and a half inches tall and only six ounces in weight.

Baby's accomplishments this week:
1. Grasp with their hands, kick and somersault. Evidently, I should be able to feel the baby kick between 16-22 weeks.

2. Grew finger and toenails. Can't wait to see baby's adorable toes!

3. Have enough calcium in their bones to show up on an X-ray.

 4. Heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood. 

5. Baby can make facial expressions, such as squinting, yawning and grimacing: I found this cute picture of little Henry that is doing all 3 expressions at once!

Update on mommy:
1. Still have a slight meat aversion although it is mostly limited to red meat now. Baby may be a vegetarian!

2. I feel great!
