A Weekend Full of Sand, Water, and Animals

Brady says:

Last weekend was a busy (but FUN) weekend for me, Mommy, Daddy, and Baby!  On Saturday, we met up with Grandpa & Grandma Meissner, Aunt Dawn, and cousin Roe in Green Lake at Heidel House, which is just a little over an hour from our house.  I got to play in the sand, play in the water, and listen to music!  The water was a little green, but I didn’t mind.  Plus, Aunt Dawn and cousin Roe had lots of beach/sand toys that they let me play with, which was awesome!  Grandpa and Daddy even made a “couple hundred” trips with buckets of water to fill my hole that we dug in sand.  Thank you, Grandpa & Daddy!

On Sunday, Mommy, Daddy, and I (Baby too) went to the Milwaukee Zoo.  I saw giraffes, elephants, fish, monkeys, penguins, moose, and much much more!  Mommy and Daddy also took me on the Safari Train ride, which I thought was awesome! Check out all the pictures from the weekend, I can’t wait until I get to go again!

It won’t be long now, folks!  Now that I’m 30 weeks old, I am weighing in at over 3 lbs… and if you haven’t seen Mommy in a while, her belly’s increasing size is a definite clue that I’m getting bigger every day!  Also growing at a quick pace these days is my brain! Until now, the surface of my brain was smooth — but now, my brain is taking on those characteristic grooves and indentations. The reason for this is to allow for an increased amount of brain tissue — a necessary change as I prepare to develop street smarts for life outside Mommy’s tummy.

What else is changing at 30 weeks? My bone marrow has taken over production of red blood cells (before, tissue groups and then the spleen took care of producing the blood cells). This is an important step for me, because it means that I will be able to thrive on my own once I make my big debut.

Mommy and I also had a doctor’s appointment yesterday (we now have to see my doctor every other week!).  We’re happy to report that all is good.  Mommy is very healthy – low blood pressure, low pulse, and all glucose and diabetes test came back normal.  And as for me?  I’m active and healthy too.  My heart rate was good and strong at around 145 (similar to my big brother Brady’s at this age), and I’m moving regularly… punching, kicking, twisting, and turning inside Mommy’s tummy.
