Tyson and Quinn's Corner


This is our life with our little man, born May 2009 and our sweet daughter, born May 2011.

Week 19

Baby Holt is the size of a mango. Doesn't that sound cuter and sweeter than a sweet potato or an onion?

"Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might actually get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature."

We had our BIG ultrasound yesterday and we have a healthy baby! Everything is looking good and baby's growth is right on schedule. Baby Holt currently weighs a whopping 11 ounces! We do have to go for a follow up ultrasound on January 19. We have a wiggly baby and the ultrasound tech was unable to get good photos of the heart chambers the the lip and nose area.

Much to the dismay of our families, we've decided to keep the sex (and the nursery!) under wraps until the baby is born. Sorry Mom and Dad and Phil and Brenda! However, it's only 20 weeks to wait to find out what your grandchild will be.
