the bump : 23 weeks

posted on: Wednesday, September 7, 2011

hello growing baby! apparently you weigh around 550g, are 29cm long and are now in similar proportion to a newborn. this is us out on the balcony of our house. when you're born you'll be able to hear the birds tweeting in these trees (so loudly for city birds) and you'll probably be woken up by all this sun streaming through the terrace doors.

this week I found your brother's baby clothes and I'm happy to see that they're all in perfect condition. I've held on to way more than I realised -- we won't have to buy too much for you at all. if you're a girl you'll be a very blue one, which is okay with me.

last weekend it was father's day and your big brother made a painting for your dad. it was also your dad's and my anniversary which I always forget and he always remembers. i think you'll like your dad. he's pretty amazing. even if he does want to call you wilberforce (for real).

keep growing steadily wee baby, we love you.

  2. So beautiful (both your words and your bump!!) It's hard to imagine a 29cm bub is inside you at that stage isn't it? Hope you're feeling well. I'm off to an ultrasound today to check our little one is growing as he/she should be x
