If You're Happy and You Know it, Clap Your Hands!

At their 14 week ultrasound, these parents saw their baby clapping in utero, so they began to sing an appropriate song. Think of this video the next time someone says the unborn baby is just a handful of cells or a blob of protoplasm. Fourteen weeks is only 3 1/2 months into the pregnancy. Many women won't even show at that point. But that little one is already fully formed with fingerprints, a strong heartbeat, and brainwaves measurable on an electroencephalograph. Babies learn in the womb. Read more here about this amazing moment. 


  1. Beautiful! You are so right, this is a great video.

  2. Amazing! Just amazing! and so very cute.

    Doesn't every parent and grandparent love to sing that song to the children? That and the book with "Fox in sox on Knox on box", among many others.
