And from Corey…

There there I was, waxing up the wife, like a surfboard, with gallons of vitamin E oil, making her belly shine like a pink bowling ball.   Every once in a while, our baby would kick.   It felt like he was rubbing back (more likely, he was fighting for space because I was caving in his roof, but I digress.)   The more I rubbed, the more I started to recognize shapes.   We know where the head is, it’s the BIG round thingy… but I swear, this long thing, just below and to the left of Hallie’s belly button, felt like an arm.   And over where Hallie’s belly was churning like a pot of pasta, over near Hallie’s right kidney, that must be his feet!   And with vision granted by the tears in my eyes, I caught my first glimpse of my baby.   There he was, all curled up in the fetal position (imagine that!) as clear as day!

And this salt crusted face that was already beaming is now lit with a florescent glow I write you this invite.

Hey all, it’s me, Mr. Last minute.   Sorry for the lag, but I’ve always been a busy bee, and now I’m a busy bee for three.

We’re having a baby!   As you all know.   So we’re having a baby shower, and it’s next weekend, and yer all invited.   And we have a registry!   And it’s, as always, optional, since, as usual, its too late to get anything in time.

But come, if you can.

The theme is “Robo-Trash”… Think white trash…think engineers…think Burningman during construction of AWESOME kinetic art (that can kill you) under the hot desert sun! Think Robogames with less nuts and bolts and more duct tape.. (key work, MORE!)

Meanwhile, all you robots nerds, wanna help me build my new Push Powered Robo Stroller? :-D   And you expecting or unexpecting (those who are no longer expecting?) robot nerds, if you help me build mine, I’ll help you build YOOOOOOOOOOURS!   (PS, there’s more of you than you think, we should start a club!)
