22 Weeks: Addison now weighs 1 Pound

Well it is nice that I can assign one pound of my weight gain to our precious daughter. All is well in the baby world. Her movements and kicks are definately becoming more pronounced, which is exciting (unless it is a kick in the bladder).
Right now we are just enjoying the little life that is in my belly.
From the Baby Center:
At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. Her eyes have formed, but her irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her body and the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside her belly, her pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.
