To seek out new life...

My wife and I just had our first of many appointments with her OB-GYN, and finally got a glimpse at what we have dubbed our little shrimp! She is about 11 weeks along and everything looks great. We're looking at a March 30th due date, give or take. This was the first time since we found out she was pregnant that it really seemed real, especially when we could swear we saw him/her swimming around in there, arms and legs moving around.

There's actually some friends and family we haven't told yet as we are crafting the perfect way to announce it, but I'm bursting at the seams to tell people so...here I am! I can't wait to get one of those little baby TNG uniforms and indoctrinate yet another member of the family into being a Trekkie!

Him/her is simulating zero G. An SF fan already!

Luckily, I don't think my wife will be making me do that. She's too frugal to let all of the gear and things I've bought for it go to waste. We *will* however be trading my sporty coupe in for something with 4 doors. I made a promise to myself to never own a minivan, and with all of the alternatives available these days that is a promise I intend to keep.

Re: To seek out new life...

Flux, mini-vans are awesome. They drive better then cars, can haul everything you need. They are not the mini-vans of old, the refinement is there and the sliding doors are the best thing.
