Week Nineteen

Week nineteen was full of work related tasks, Le Petit Bébé grew its brain substantially while helping me grade exams and final projects. I am pretty sure it is going to come out of delivery lecturing the labor and delivery staff on how to streamline the birthing process and re-engineer the health information system. Aside from all the work related activities that we have been focusing on, we have also been getting excited to be off on break and enjoy the Christmas season... we have lots of shopping to get done, cookies to bake and presents to wrap. New this week is the development of some rhythm within the womb, it appears that the little one might take after Matt, Erin, My Dad & Uncle and Matt's whole family when it comes to music. While out to dinner at one of our favorite pizza locations they had a bluegrass band playing, it was very loud and energetic music and Le Petit Bébé was really moving and shaking to the beat. I mean, I am guessing that is what it was, as opposed to, moving out of the way of the loads of olive, green pepper, mushroom, bacon, and banana pepper pizza I was shoveling in.
