Here’s the update for this week according to babygaga.com: “At long last, your little swimmer can see the womb! Your miracleâ€™s little eyelids have finally separated (they were fused closed previously) and theyâ€™re probably having their first moments of sight as you read this (or maybe it already happened while you were brushing your teeth or watching Oprah or something). In addition to seeing their little studio in your belly, theyâ€™ve recently acquired the ability to say â€œyesâ€ and â€œnoâ€ in rudimentary sign language as they can now move their head back and forth. This is also the time where your little super starâ€™s head hair is starting to grow! A cute little cowlick or two may be springing into position right now, getting ready for years of cute-but-stubborn bed-head. Also, their toenails have grown in and your little raisin continues to slowly pile up fat beneath their still-loose skin. Most importantly, brain tissue and neurons are all developing at a rapid pace, increasing their (genius-level?) brain activity and will continue to function at accelerated levels for the first seven to eight years of childhood!”
I’ve been feeling very good these days… I’m about to tackle research on cloth diapers and glass bottles (even though I hope to breast feed). I’ve been brushing up on all-things-baby by reading The Baby Whisperer, which is a very balanced approach to babyhood. I didn’t read this the first time around, but found that I naturally followed most of the principles by modifying the stringent advice in Baby Wise. If you have any suggestions concerning diapers, bottles, or books, let me know!
Would you like to join me in praying this verse for our children?
Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true) and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Ephesians 5: 8 – 10
