Baby pictures

Not much to show yet, on the outside.

However, our little girl (or boy, gender was decided weeks ago at conception), has already done a lot of growing! Her (or his) heart has been beating for several weeks already, all of her major joints are functional (shoulder, knees, elbow, wrists and ankles) and her fingers and toes are already growing tiny nails! All this, and much more, while she is still less than 2 inches in size.



Amazing.

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
- Ps 139:13 New Living Translation

It's such a miracle! So you're sailing right into the 2nd trimester now, eh? How many weeks are you now, 12 or 13? You'll look back at this picture and be amazed at how much you stretch out! Fun to compare now and as you and Baby grow!

ps. I have some baby name books, if you want to borrow them. Fun to look at the meanings too.

What week are you at now? I've tried to back track in my mind to what the date was when you called, but I can't remember. I'll have to write it down so I can keep track.
