Based solely on the latest set of sonograms given to us at our last doctor’s appointment, Wiggy has transformed from a vague brine-looking sea monkey, and into an actual vague person-looking thingy:

Wiggy's Head!

See that nose? Adorable, isn’t it? Wiggy gets it from her ma, the Insta-Princess.

Now, I’m not saying my own schnoz is lacking in the looks department, but on the whole, if I had to compare the two, my vote goes toward the Insta-Princess’s nose as being the cutest. Mine’s a more rugged look, closer in description to aquiline than button. (The phrase “cute as a button” always reminds me of Button-Bright, the curly-headed wanderer from The Road to Oz. His real name, by the way, is Saladin Paracelsus de Lambertine Evagne von Smith. And, yes, I did suggest that as a final name for Wiggy, but my suggestion was turned down. Although, not so much turned down, mind you, as laughed out of the room… taking me along with it.)

Wiggy, sensing an audience, yawned while we were taking a black-and-white peek. Cutest damn thing, evah. We’re pretty sure it was a yawn; it looked like a yawn, and the doctor didn’t disabuse us of that notion, so we’re going to stick with it being a yawn. For all we know it could have been a fart, rerouted through Wiggy’s esophagus due to the lack of a fully-formed butt.

So, yeah, a yawn.

Gee, that’s all. I thought I had a lot more to say, but breaking into a bottle of wine and stealing all of its goods last night didn’t quite put the spring into my step this morning. It was made worse, even, because I had to go it alone thanks to Wiggy’s upcoming arrival.

But I updated The Blog, and by golly, that’s important.

Goodness, how on earth did a child of yours end up with a brain?

It must be from the Insta-Princess’s side…


I didn’t say Wiggy had developed a brain; just a nose. At any rate, I have something very mean to say in return, except…

Except, you’re probably right.

But, if Wiggy automatically grins at every salacious joke, no matter how juvenile? That’s from me. (In case anyone had doubts.)


So, so, so cute. Seriously, that’s one adorable loooking baby. When is she (???) due to arrive?


Wiggy is due around the end of February, beginning of March. Probably March 5th, although a sonogram technician mentioned a week sooner. Me, I’m just hoping for a February 29th birthday. That’d rock. And, by “rock” I mean that Wiggy will be a natural for The Pirates of Penzance.

In which case, no matter the gender, we’ll have to call Wiggy “Fred”.
