I have several pregnancy apps on my phone that detail baby’s development week by week – and even day by day.
I told Lucy that the baby is now the size of a banana. Here’s the conversation that followed:
Lucy: “Is it yellow like a banana?”
Me: “No, honey. It’s the color of a baby.”
Lucy: “Is it shaped like a banana?”
Me: “No, honey. It’s shaped like a baby. Do you want to see a picture of what the baby looks like right now?”
Lucy: “Yes, please.”
I open the app that shows baby’s development week by week and show Lucy the picture of a baby boy at week 20.
Lucy: “EWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can see his b-e-e-t-t-e-e-e!”
