Another Mailly Baby on the Way!

Baby #4 is currently growing his or her way from a zygote to a blastocyst to an embryo to a fetus. (We watched a cool PBS special called "Life's Greatest Miracle". I'm not remembering all that from my high school biology class.) The Lord is an incredible craftsman. This baby has already undergone its most profound and dramatic development in only 13 weeks of life. All his or her internal organs and limbs are fully developed. Complex brain circuitry is up and running. Eyelids, fingernails and toenails, tooth buds, vocal chords, and that adorable little face have all formed from what was a tiny cluster of living cells just weeks ago. Life is truly amazing, and the One who gives it even more so. Praise the Lord, Who makes us in fearful and wonderful ways.

A 13 week old baby. Although I'm sure ours is MUCH cuter.
