Young Scout seems to be hitting a lot of milestones lately. Scout has been pooping and peeing for a couple of weeks now, and he or she is capable of that all-time favorite pastime of babies: thumb-sucking. Scout is about 5 inches "tall" (from crown to rump) and weighs about 3.5 to 5.0 ounces. Scout has been inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid for a couple of weeks, practicing breathing, which will come in handy once he or she makes the big entrance into the real world. As of this week, Scout's eyes and ears are moving into their proper places, and his or her circulatory system is completely functional.
Pretty amazing, huh? Not even born yet, and our Scout is already doing amazing things.
I just hope Scout isn't too negatively affected by hearing me practice Shostakovich while he or she is still in the womb.
In two weeks, Scout should be able to hear me. And Shostakovich.
Maybe I should start playing Mozart and Chopin instead.
