WTE Weekly Update! Sweet 16.

Sixteen weeks and counting! The developments as reported by WTE are less jaw-dropping this week and more heart-warming, which is nice. (You won’t believe what I imagined after the last few weeks of reading WTE, you know, the sci-fi.) But alas, it’s cute baby talk like one would hope/expect.

I learned Thing can perceive light and move its eyes back and forth! (That is, now that Thing’s eyes are actually on its face). And, Thing can hear us! (Now that Thing’s ears have migrated from its neck to the sides of its head.) It’s kind of crazy thinking about a 3rd being listening to everything we say. However, I take comfort that Thing can’t yet speak English and thus can’t judge me from in there. But should I start listening to Mozart now instead of Naughty By Nature?

Also, Thing has eyebrows and eyelashes!!! Amazing. (That reminds me, I’m due to get my eyebrows waxed and need to pick up some more Blinc Kiss Me Mascara, the best mascara on earth. It’s TUBES! Been using it for years and have successfully pushed it on most of my friends who also love it. Kind of like Zicam, minus the commercial.) ...Right, baby. I’m wondering – how can WTE determine eyelashes and eyebrows if Thing is covered in hair? Side note: If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you don’t read my blog enough, and shame.

Also, WTE was trying to pitch me some baby ticker to add to my blog (I declined)… it basically shows what your baby looks like each week in your uterus with a nice background picture setting the scene of where your baby is (lady parts), and “tips” that are really just horrific facts that only add to the horrific picture slideshow. I had it up for a few moments on my laptop at work and I’m afraid men in suits and sunglasses will be down here any moment to escort me out for having such vile content displayed in a public place.

Anyway, this is for you, Thing!

p.s. - if you're struggling for baby names, you might want to check out the Word Verification codes used on blogspot comment pages. the word for my last comment was Clavtmen (boy) and this time it's Plimp (also a boy's name)

OK OK I promise I'll post a bump pic this week! And Mic that's funny you say that, because I was thinking I'd name my baby Captcha. Works for boy and girl, don't you think?
