Week 40 {Development}



It's hard to say for sure how big Baby Suarez will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long. His skull bones are not yet fused, which allows them to overlap a bit if it's a snug fit through the birth canal during labor. This so-called "molding" is the reason Baby Suarez’s noggin may look a little conehead-ish after birth. Rest assured—it's normal and temporary.

  1. I suppose the baby has kept you busy because it's been a while since you've posted on your blog. The last few posts seemed pretty generic, to boot. I can't help but wonder what happened to ya! Mind you, I'm a mother of 2 and am well aware of how busy life can get and a blog entry is the last thing on your mind. But, my curiosity is getting the best of me and I would love to know how you are? The baby? Your family? Do tell...
