And we're viable!

I am 24 weeks today, which is the official point of viability. I guess I never paid attention to that when I was pregnant with Jack. All it means is that if I were to give birth now, the baby has a pretty high rate of survival, so the hospital would do whatever it takes. But I'm not planning on giving birth anytime soon. :)
I skipped the produce comparison last week because it was kind of lame. It was the weight of a mango. This week it's the length of an ear of corn. It's actually about a foot long, and I think that would make one LONG ear of corn. Anyway, that's what it is. And just over a pound. And it's a mover! My second ultrasound is Monday, so I can hopefully call it "she" with a little more confidence. Or "he" for that matter. No more of this "it" business!

Amy, St. Patrick's Day was the day I went into labor with Jack!
If it is indeed a girl, her name is Leah. MUCH of my motivation behind getting another ultrasound is that Jack immediately began calling her "Baby Leah," and I figured that would not bode well for a baby that ended up being a boy. If everyone is wrong and it's another boy, it's Colin. (Pronounced like Firth, not Powell).

I hope Monday comes quickly for you! :-) I like how you explained the Colin pronunciation! (I updated, by the way!)
