Week 27: Second trimester graduation day

The baby’s higher brain functions are becoming more sophisticated. This allows the baby to mark the milestone of leaving the second trimester with reflection, contemplation, and looking toward to the future. “What do I want to do with my life?,” the baby asks itself, and answers “I think someday I would like to eat without involving my naval.” So it begins preparing for nursing using thumb sucking to strengthen its cheek and jaw muscles.

Stats: 9 ½” and 2 lbs.
