Pregnant [Jun. 13th, 2016|08:56 am]
David Newton
I have a huge announcement today - but it's not the one I've been building up to over the last few weeks...

My wife Whitney is pregnant for the first time! Yes, soon we're expecting a little mutant mouse-rabbit of our own :) Our due date - seriously - is Christmas Day, condemning this child to a lifetime of rubbish combined Christmas-and-birthday gifts.

It still feels new to me every time I think about it, and I have no idea how things are going to be after December... but maybe I'll manage to mess this child up a little less than my parents did with me.

Christmas babies are the best babies. Get her induced on Xmas eve though. Share a day with me, not Jeebus ;)

Congratulations!! :D

It sounds like you're having rousing experiences!

Alternatively, given that the young ones are more likely to take the diminutive, does that mean you two've finally been making munny?

Ha, yes :) What's a child mouse? I'm going to guess it's probably "mousiekins".

A baby mouse is apparently called a "pinky."

Which, I suppose, would make a mouse-rabbit hybrid (going off the Google'd information that baby rabbits are called "kits") a "pinkit."

You could also get a sheep or goat furry to make you Yorkshire pudding for celebratory purposes. *headbob*

Congratulations, My brother just had his first. And someone I know in the EM field is expecting in a couple of months. He was really impressed with the imaging capabilities of the ultrasound.

Saw this over on Twitter and thought I'd blow the dust off this account to offer congradulations ! I remember when you first moved to the US, its nice to see that your life keeps on giving, and hopefully it'll keep doing so for many years into your child's life.
