Fun Facts Friday

The EYES Have It! 

Is a mothers belly button the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel" we hear so much about? No not really, but babies in the womb can actually "see" light. Your baby's eyes begin developing two weeks after conception and over the next four weeks all the major eye structures are fully formed.  By the time your seventh month is starting your baby is capable of opening their eyes, detecting light and even following the movement of light.
