Traditionally, we believe Christ was conceived on March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation. We will watch the parallel development of “Chris” in the womb from March 25 to December 25.
(Week 22) “I can hear mom’s conversations more clearly now. I can hear her read, sing and talk. I like to kick back, suck my thumb, and listen to her read to me. My eyelids and eyebrows are fully formed. My fingernails have grown to the end of my fingers. My brain is growing really fast so I’m going to be very smart.” Chris weighs nearly a pound now.
Dads, did you know: Low-frequency sounds, mimicking a male voice, penetrate the abdomen and uterine wall better than the higher frequencies of the female voice?
“Teach them (God’s ordinances) to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Det. 6:7
(Week 21) “My tongue is fully formed now. I’m practicing giving people a raspberry! I can hear noises from the outside. Some loud ones scare me. I know mom’s voice and like the music she listens to. I now have fingernails and fingerprints. I’m not as little as I used to be just a few weeks ago. Now I am about 10 inches long if I could stand up straight!"
Mom is waiting to find out if Chris is a boy or girl.
“and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:11
