Eloise is 12 weeks today and is the size of a lime. He/She has been working hard and growing a lot this week. It can now open and close its hands and curl its toes. Its eyes are now in place but does not have eyelids that close yet. It has reflexes and would move if prodded, although I can't feel it yet. Lee has been "tickling Eloise" lately, which is funny, yet mildly annoying. I guess I can take comfort in knowing that Eloise can actually feel it and might even be responding. It weighs about 1/2 ounce and is 2 inches long. Lee continues to ask tons of questions about it and is busy making plans for it. He informed us the other night that it would just sleep in his bed with him. Matt and I are not making much progress in the name department, but Lee said that after Eloise, he would like another sister named Olivia and then a brother named Ian. I'm pretty sure he thinks we're just going to a drive thru window at the hospital to pick it up when it's time. He's got a wild imagination.
