Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

it seems the younger they are, the more "up" on technology they are! And our little one is right there with them. Apparently my uterus has wireless Internet so baby Seaton started a Twitter!!!
One of my most treasured things on this earth, is a "play by play" diary that my dad kept during my moms labor with me...it is typed on a type writer and in my baby book....it covers everything from who was there, what the weather was like that day, to my moms progression and eventual c-secton, to how he felt the moment he saw me.
Because of that diary, it is pretty important to me that my labor is documented...somehow...we decided the easiest way to do that is to take advantage of modern technology and start a "Labor Twitter" that jake will be able to keep up with from his iphone that he is getting from me for fathers day :) I plan on being able to then print all the "twits" off somehow for our baby book...
So to follow baby seaton on Twitter just go to www.twitter.com/babyseaton I think they plan on tweeting some up until the big day as well :) Plus its a great way for all our family, friends and blog readers to keep updated when things start to happen!!! :)

*baby S really wanted in the photo :)
well we planted the end of march and went through two freezes so we are just now starting to see the fruits of our labor (literally ;). Our strawberry's started showing up first...they are very small and we only get 2 or 3 at a time, we are starting to see small jalapenos peeping out....but our grape tomato's look the best! I think because of the freezes and the fact that we did not want to use any type of fertilizer,and because i have a purple thumb our garden is not exactly flourishing but it is at least producing! But summer has hardly began...the garden still has lots of time! :)

Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. She's shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered her body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Your baby swallows both of these substances, along with other secretions, resulting in a blackish mixture, called meconium, will form the contents of her first bowel movement.
At the end of this week, your baby will be considered full-term. (Full-term is 37 to 42 weeks; babies born before 37 weeks are pre-term and those born after 42 are post-term.) Most likely she's in a head-down position.
