Friday...on Thursday?

Tomorrow is my Friday at work!!!! Yay! Since 4th of July falls on a Saturday this year, my work is giving us our paid holiday on Friday! So, I've been on early deadlines all week, which has been a little bit stressful, but you know...every day we're on deadline, so it's really not too much different than any other day! And today I set myself up to pretty much float through tomorrow as far as approving ads and turning in artwork. YAY!

The bummer of tomorrow...I still have to go to my Downtown Business Association meeting tomorrow night from 6-8:30pm (I'm on the board so I HAVE to be there) and I'm starting my work day at 6:45 a.m. because I'm helping my boss out by going to his networking meeting in the morning. I think I'll probably leave work around 2 or 3 tomorrow so I can have some time off before my night time meeting. Adam and I are in the middle of cleaning the house because we have about 10 people and 2 dogs coming to stay with us this weekend. My friend Katie is going to be in town and Monday happens to be her 30th birthday. Adam, I and our 8 friends from California and Katie's boyfriend, Dan, have planned a surprise party for her when she gets in Friday night! We're all super excited because she really has NO CLUE! She is really upset because she thinks no one is coming to see her this weekend! I LOVE IT! I should have pics on Monday.

And now for the weekly update on Boss:

Guess what? At 22 weeks pregnant, your baby has finally broken the one-pound mark. How heavy is that? Hold a one-pound box of sugar in your hand the next time you're in the grocery story (and expect people to ask you why you're grinning from ear to ear). Is the box eight inches long? That's about the length your baby is too!

This week, your sweetie is making more sense of the world as he or she develops the sense of touch. In fact, your little one's grip is quite developed by now — and since there's nothing else to grab in utero, he or she may sometimes hold on tight to that umbilical cord (don't worry — it's tough enough to handle it). The sense of sight is also getting more developed. Your fetus can now perceive light and dark much better than before (even with those fused eyelids). But remember — unless you're shining a flashlight over your belly (which you can do, by the way), it'll be mostly dark for your baby inside that cozy womb of yours.

Moving up from the eyes, the eyelashes and eyebrows are well formed now — and even more hair is sprouting atop that cute little head. You'd be quite surprised, though, if you could see your little one up close and in color. Hair at this stage of fetal development has no pigment, so it's bright white.

I can't believe the baby is at the one pound mark already!!! CRAZY! Hope you all enjoyed and have a great 4th of July weekend!

Nee, we presume Katie doesn't read your blog? Otherwise you've just spoiled the surprise.

Are you holding a flashlight for Boss to look at? That might be a positive stimulation and learning experience for him/her.

We love you, and yes, you'll have Cowboy Cookies!
