Fearfully and wonderfully made...

I think it's already clear that I will be one of those obnoxious grandmothers who loves to share photos of their grandchildren, and bore others endlessly with tales and anecdotes abut them. Feel free, Gentle Reader, to ignore me in such instances, or even to lovingly tell me I'm being obnoxious. It may not help, but I will at least try...

According to the mom of grandchild #1, our little peanut has grown into less of a bean and more of a teddy bear. If you are really good, you can make that out in the latest sonogram photo. Little Finni has little feet, and litle hands with forming fingerprints already! It is amazing how we are formed in the womb, and it makes me rejoice:

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
~Psalm 139: 13-17

Please keep our little teddy bear and his or her momma and daddy in your prayers!
