What about Baby Scout?
*Baby Scout is approximately 11.8 inches and about 1 pound 7 oz
*Baby Scout is still surrounded by a large amount of amniotic fluid
*Baby Scout's Alveoli (air sacs) are forming in the lungs
*If Baby Scout was born today, her survival rate would be 60% and she would most likely have serious medical complications (I hope Baby Scout makes it to the end of school)
*Baby Scout may now have hair growing longer on her head
*Baby Scout should now be blessing me with the linea nigra (a dark line down my belly), but I don't see it yet!
*Baby Scout is the size of a eggplant

For a few months now, I have been following the blog of Jennifer Francis. A couple of days ago she announced she would be doing a give-a-way. The give-a-way is from CSN Stores and will be one pair of Jakester Shoes by Rileyroos to one of her lucky readers! I think Baby Scout would be adorable in these!

Here is a little information about Rileyroos (in case you are interested in ordering or entering the give-a-way).

Rileyroos design inspiration comes from a combination of European fashion trends and American spirit and casualness. Rileyroos are designed to imitate barefoot walking and to protect little feet. The sole of a Rileyroos shoe is flexible and its rubber-padded sole curls above the toes to provide leverage as a child begins crawling. Unlike many heavy or bulky first walking shoes, Rileyroos’ lightweight construction and protective bottoms support a child’s foot as he or she starts walking and provides traction to prevent falls on slippery surfaces. Rileyroos was dreamt up after being frustrated with the lack of stylish and developmentally friendly shoe choices when owners, Kim and Brian had their first child. They created Rileyroos with a focus on style, comfort and ease, which is most important for little growing feet.

I hope you have a happy Thursday!
