Week 21

Big doin's this week. He weighs about 10.5 ounces, and crown to rump length is about 7 inches, which Great Expectations says is as long as a spoon. The book also helpfully informs us that 10.5 ounces is about what bear cubs weigh when they are born.


It's been chilly in the mornings lately (no, really, objectively chilly, like below 55 degrees in our bedroom), so Leo is even more likely than usual to desire a little morning snuggle time under the blankets. This morning he curled up right at my belly and set to purring, at which point the bambino started dancing around. It was pretty amusing. They say that kids who were exposed to dog barking in the womb aren't afraid of the noise once they're born. I raher doubt, however, that exposure in utero is necessary to develop a positive association with cat purring. Not exactly the most threatening of sounds, that. ;)
