Baby Riesland – Eight Weeks

Our son or daughter — we’re calling him/her ‘Baby Riesland’, and ‘BR’ for short — is about 8 weeks old. 8 weeks.

8 weeks ago, people were stressing what to get for valentines day and looking forward to March madness.

Now, in that short amount of time, little BR has attached nicely to Steph’s insides, and in that little bubble that looks like it could be made of saliva, he/she has already begun developing all major organs, sprouted two arms and two legs, and is busy developing the brain. And that whole package is way smaller than an inch.

And all our pregnancy books tell us that doctors have no idea how a fertilized egg gets to this point.

I do :0)

In Psalm 139, it says that God knit me together in my mother’s womb. And in Ephesians 1 it says that I am God’s hand-crafted masterpiece. It uses the Greek word from which we get the word ‘poem’.

How cool is our God?


  1. Our God is extreeemly cool! He never ceases to amaze me, and reveal to me all that I need to know at exactly the right time. Your baby has been predestined to be conformed to the image of God’s Son, called to be His son or daughter, justified by His blood, and glorified to live together with Him for all eternity. May he/she (baby R) come to know all this and more as he/she grows in His love!
