I feel like I generally understand how and why a baby is born into this world, but now that I'm actually experiencing it and learning about these little growth details step-by-step, there's only one word I can respond with. "Really?!?"
For example, here are a few updates on Little Clore (from our book, Your Pregnancy, by Glade B. Curtis and Judith Schuler):
-weighs between 1/3-1/2 of an ounce
-is 2 1/2 inches long
-fingers and toes have separated
-nails are growing
-fetal nervous system is continuing to develop
-skeletal system now has centers of bone formation in most bones
Frederick Buechner once said, "If you think you are seeing the same show all over again seven times a week, you're crazy. Every morning you wake up to something that in all eternity never was before and never will be again. And the you that wakes up was never the same before and never will be the same again."
I'm glad our maker decided this little one was another way to add to his infinite glory.
