Oh my god I asked my daughter the same question, she hasn´t spoken to me for a week.
I sincerely hope you refrained from mentioning how the spine in the latest pictures reminds one of the monster in Alien... Probably better to ask if the dotted lines mean that the little one is playing Pong, or Pac-Man...

just sayin...

...And although they know what it is going to be I am going to let myself be surprised, by the way, can I get one of these famous EF-polls here?
I gave it a go, let me know if we need more options.

At first glance I thought I was looking at the Philae lander on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

I did initially include alien just for fun, because of JW's post. But then I thought if your daughter saw that as an option she might be horrified an/or mad at you.

Believe me 3Wishes if she found out I was posting the pictures she would be mad at me period.

But I simply have to share.

Re: The nine month countdown

We are doing fine, off to the UK on Sunday for my Moms eightieth birthday and I get to see my daughters baby bump for the first time. What a lucky man I am.
Our little pokemon is getting along fine, here are the newest pictures.

Don't put ideas in his head, JW.

Slammer - the correct comment when you see her is some variation of "You look beautiful/amazing/glowing/awesome". And if/when she complains about how huge she feels, tell her that growing a human is hard work and get her a nice cup of tea. Glad to see the little one is growing nicely.

Babybump is freaking AWESOME and best of all I can feel it move, by the way the working title is now officially: "Pokemon!"

Just remember how quiet and "in one place" Pokemon is at the moment then recall that memory as you are babysitting a shrieking toddler pushing crackers into the DVD player whilst smearing jam across the TV.

Happy days.
