Our little sweet potato is about 5 inches long and weighs about 6 ounces. Haiden’s skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints. And you read it correctly…our little sweet potato is a BOY! Greg and I are so excited and can’t wait to meet little Mr. Haiden Hayes Pierce in January!
The party was a success and we are so thankful that everyone spent their Saturday afternoon celebrating with us. We had a great time! Thanks for bringing all the food and gifts, our little Haiden will be one spoiled baby! Now the work begins on painting and decorating the nursery and staining the furniture. I’ll let you know when we plan on doing those things and anyone who wants to help is more then welcome to join the party! Sunday was spent being lazy around the house. Mom and Mackie came over to help me organize the closets but we were all so tired that we just ended up sitting around snacking and drinking (sweet tea for me!). It was a nice day though, just what we needed.
