Hump day, bump day!

bV is the size of a pomegranate!
At 10.5 inches and about 12.7 ounces, she's big enough now that you've probably been feeling her movements. I have and I forgot how weird and alien-y it is!

bV at 21 weeks:
- As her digestive system preps for the outside world, she's manufacturing meconium -- the tarry black substance you'll find in her first dirty diaper.
- She's already got a lifetime's supply of eggs in her womb -- about six million of them!

Kind of a crappy picture this morning, but this was the one that my buddy wanted to get in and "hold his baby sister," so I sort of had to include it, you know?

We have bV's name narrowed down to 2...but Alex seems to be dead-set on one name: Sheila. Yes, you read that correctly. When we asked him his opinion on what we should name his sister he told us that God told him the baby's name was Sheila...which is a tough one to argue because Sheila is definitely not in our top 2 choices. We don't know anyone named Sheila, and there's not any characters named Sheila on any of the shows he watches. A mystery, for sure! If God for real wants us to name this baby Sheila I might need a few more signs for confirmation. See also: In stone a la Moses.
