The nine month countdown

Just heard the news and I want to shout it out from the rooftops.
Slammer is going to be a GRANDDAD!
I think I can get my head around my new title.

That's great news, Slammer. Congratulations.

So, the obvious question. Was it conceived during their visit to you?

This is the other daughter, and there has been a incredible amount of scifi-tech needed to get this little miracle underway.

Daughter would kill me if she knew I posted this but I just have to share.
Seven weeks, and holding on, today was the first time they could hear and see the heartbeat, we are still in the dangerous phase but hey:
