Mother’s day is this coming Sunday (are you prepared?) and it’s time to thank our moms for everything they do for us. Besides, without them, you would have no feet! Around the 10th week of gestation, your paddle-like hands and feet start separating into fingers and toes. Two weeks later, you probably started celebrating your new feet by kicking and flexing them, testing your new muscles. But it took way longer until your feet were fully developed. In fact, until 6 months after birth, baby’s feet are still mostly cartilage. It’s not until age three or four that you develop a foot arch and it’s not until your teens that your foot bones finish growing. So thank your mom this Sunday for everything she does for you, including giving you your wonderful feet.
