Carrot Top

I keep hoping that our little one ends up with curly red hair and green eyes. The green eyes from me, the curly red hair and freckles from her daddy. My grandfather had brilliant, beautiful red hair when he was young - and the day he met my Mister he said, "there's hope for a red-headed grandbaby, yet!".
My husband had serious red hair when he was a kid. He was a look alike for Opie from Mayberry RFD. No lie. Those were the first words out of my mouth when I saw pictures of him.
That being the case, today's 21 week picture made me chuckle....whether she ends up with red hair or not, at one point, I did have a carrot top ;)

Your baby -- currently the length of a carrot -- weighs about 3/4 of a pound. (Length: 10 1/2 inches, head to heel.)
