Mammy, don’t forget to make an appointment with the doctor. They’re going to want to see you as soon as next week!
I’m going to look much different when I’m born, Mammy. Right now, I look like a tiny collection of tubes… but those tubes have VERY important purposes! One is developing my brain and spinal cord, while another develops my heart. I even have tiny buds on the sides of my body that will grow into my arms and legs! Someday, I’ll kick around the football with you in the backyard – I can’t wait!
