Baby is the size of a coconut
Hello everyone! This week’s update is for our 31st week. It’s been a pretty enjoyable week with Honeybee’s Awards Day and her schoolmates’ graduation ceremonies. Our niece also turned 13 and I can’t believe how quick that happened! I wasn’t able to join as baby A. developed a fever the day prior and I thought it wiser to keep her away from kids until we reached a full 48 hour fever free mark.
