Baby development

I am in a constant stage of development now.

My five senses - touch, smell, taste, hearing and sight - are now fully developed. The lanugo hair which has been a constant component of helping regulate my body temperature continues to diminish and disappear. The role of overseeing my body warmth will now be managed by my brain and the new fat cells. The bone marrow now controls the production of red blood cells previously administered by the liver.

The skeleton continues to harden and my lungs, brain and muscles continue to progress. At this time, a lot of babies would have assumed the position before delivery, whilst others continue to embrace their inner acrobat.
