When did Mary know for certain that Jesus was the Son of God?

Luke 2:16-19: " 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby m lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But n Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart."

Luke 2:48-51: "And when his parents 1 saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, d your father and I have been searching for you in great distress." 49 And he said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that e I must be in f my Father's house?" 2 50 And g they did not understand the saying that he spoke to them. 51 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And h his mother treasured up all these things in her heart."

Here are two passages that speak of Mary "pondering things in her heart" about what was being said about Jesus. One passage occurs when he was first born, and the second occurs when he was a young boy. It's not clear when Mary truly began to believe Jesus was the Son of God. What do you think?

Luke 2:48 - 51

ESV - 48 And when his parents saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress. 49 And he said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?
