This is week #39 of baby, and guess what? He arrived!
Little Angelos is perfect and looks like a little angel—well-dressed in monogrammed attire with a bit of hair gel, perhaps?
He is the size of a mini watermelon, which is the produce of the week. Right on schedule, he weighed in at 7 pounds, 13 ounces and is a whopping 20 ¾ inches long.
Mom is doing well and could use some rest. She’s a trooper!
And for fun, a few tidbits of watermelon trivia.
As you may suspect, watermelon is great for hydration since it is 92% WATER. Between the water and fiber, it will fill you up without loading you up on calories. Sweet!
Watermelon delivers many vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that enhance health.
Benefits include enhanced heart and eye health, decreased inflammation linked to many chronic diseases, and improved digestion.
We began the baby countdown back in October at week #17 with the turnip and have certainly covered the produce section.
May you continue to enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables and challenge yourself to try something unusual from time to time.
How fitting that little Angelos has shown up in time for Easter as we celebrate new life and the resurrection of Jesus.
To the parents of Angelos, I wish you many blessings, lots of love, and an occasional good night’s sleep.
Thanks for giving me fun blog material for the last 5 months.
Wishing you a most joyful Easter,
“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”
