You are in the business of growing, God. Thank you that my little one is growing bigger each day, adding on some muscle and some fat. Grow him up strong as his cartilage turns to bone. Even his umbilical cord is growing thicker. Thank you for your perfect provision of nourishment from my body to his, so that growth can happen. Please protect this process of feeding into his belly button. Speaking of growth, my body is also getting bigger! This both excites and scares me. Please help me be the healthiest mama I can be. Show me the way. My heart grows more thankful to you every day…
