  • Emerson Jude 32 Weeks

    By now, baby Jude weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in my body. He’ll gain a third to half of his birth weight during the next 7 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He now has toenails, […]

  • Emerson Jude 31 Weeks

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.
