Ten-pound gerbil

A certain baby book says our little one is about the size of "a small
gerbil" right now, but I don't know... I think I look more than sixteen and a half weeks pregnant, so maybe gerbil was a typo. Maybe they meant full-grown male marmot. More likely, I need to cut back on these and these.*

I was prompted to make a note of the gerbil issue after a friend who is in a more advanced stage of pregnancy told me that her forthcoming baby is now the size of Toto from the Wizard of Oz.

* And definitely these.
