Euro Baby?

According to this article, pregnancy in America lasts 39 weeks.

Which, for Tina, was this weekend.

The doctor, after doing some prodding, reported that baby wasn't going anywhere in a hurry, so we're looking at the more civilised 41 week mark, which is how they do things in France.

In my own secret way, I'm wondering if this is Baby's unspoken decision to become an 'Euro' rather than 'Amero' baby. Fortunately, because of Tina and my citizenship, Baby will have the blissful choice of being either.

But up above, I've posted an artist's rendition of 'Le Bebé Hulme' in Euro mode.

I keep checking back here to see whether Militant Sprog has turned up yet or not. Thinking of you all and hoping it goes well.

Take care. x

Or... the little militant is showing you whose boss up front! LOL! I am very much looking forward to your view on all things Daddy. It will be interesting to see how it influences you. Hold on to your hat, you are in for a wild ride... the best one you can take! And I can honestly say that even though my 19 year old girl has put us through it. I'd do it all over again.
