I have doubled my weight this month. I weigh about
two pounds and am about fifteen inches long. This
week, I will grow a whole inch. I won’t have another
growth spurt like this until I am a teenager! With all
this growing, I need a lot of nutrients from my mom’s
food. Speaking of food, my taste buds are well developed now. I can even tell when my mom eats spicy food. It sometimes gives
me the hiccups! God has given me wonderful ears to hear with too. I know
my mom and dad’s voices. When I am born, I will recognize their voices and
feel right at home! I like hearing them sing and pray. The way they talk
about me, I can tell they are happy God has entrusted me to them. Thank
you God and thanks to all of you for your prayers.
