Some Things Just Pop Out

Well, here we are at 17 weeks and there is no more hiding this little human!  The belly's coming has been for a while but it was pretty easy to hide.  But now after a four month check up hearing that fast heartbeat it's beginning to feel more and more real every day.  When I went in for my check up the little baby had moved up near my belly button...quite the mover!  So here's what's new with this little one: it's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone and it's weighing in at 5 ounces...roughly the size of a turnip.  Our baby's ears are close to their final position and he or she can hear our voices, also little toenails are forming!  How very exciting to think that a tiny little one is being knit together inside of me...I love this little person so much already but I know how much more God loves him or her.  I think about the Psalm (139) where David talks about being made in the secret and sewed together in the depths of the earth.  However this little one doesn't want to stay hidden for long...
