Yesterday we were able to see our second baby at our ultrasound. With both babies so far, we’ve had to have ultrasounds at 9 weeks to see how far along we are. To see a baby at such a tiny stage is truly a miraculous thing.
This was Caleb at the 12 week ultrasound.
It is unbelievable to think that less than two years later he has grown into such a busy, healthy, wonderful boy! Here he is in one of our most recent photos of him.
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.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
One of the number one concerns for us as parents, besides our children one day following the Lord, is health and strength. We have been praying that the Lord would knit this baby together within my womb and that He would watch over every detail of baby’s development.
I know that this baby is bursting with personality already. The way Caleb was like during pregnancy, has been very much what he has been like on the outside. He never stopped moving within me, and he never stops moving now! As difficult as pregnancy can be, it is such an amazing time to get to know your baby before they are born.
I haven’t been as focused on this baby as I was with my first pregnancy, since life is busier. However this baby’s development and life is just as important. I know that they are going to bring a unique dynamic to our family that only they can bring.
To all my readers carrying babies along with me, let me pray this prayer of protection upon your little one.
Dear Jesus, would you hold each of these unborn babies within your hands. Please protect them, form them and create them as only you can. Your workmanship is exquisite, and I ask that you would place a wall of protection around each little one as you knit them together within the womb. May each one be blessed by you, and may you call each one to do mighty works for you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
