    Congratulations!! [face_dancing]
    When is the baby due?
    Hope you weren't planning on going to CIII. Because even if you do you'll probably sleep through most of it. I-) (Since you definitely won't be getting sleep during non-convention hours...)

    Greetings, blokes.

    Darth_Raptor... Congratulations! That's great! I'm happy for you.

    You should start the Inevitable Fandom early: buy some headphones, stick them on your gal's stomach, and play the Star Wars soundtrack to lull the young'un to sleep.

    :D

    Sounds like a plan to me,
    Yours Truly

    Well, since I already knew, it's a bit anti-climactic. . . but congrats, anyway! :p

    Thanks guys! And even if I'm very tired, I will be at Celebration III :) Now I wonder if they make little Yoda PJs.....

    I don't know if they make SW PJs for fans that young, but for Connor's first con we made our own...

    See pic at http://www.rochesterfandom.com/modules.php?set_albumName=album04&id=DSC00050&op=modload&name=gallery&file=index&include=view_photo.php

    Our son had just turned 9 weeks old when we took him to his first convention (granted it was only 20 mins away and only a 1-day thing - but we wanted to start him out slow).

    We just took a older, slightly stained onsie (if you don't know what one of those are yet - they're a long undershirt that snaps at the bottom), printed out a Yoda picture on a piece of iron-on "paper" and ironed it on. I can't find a pic of it, but on the back we put (in a scrolling SW font) "Full of Force Small People Are". It was real simple and comfortable for Connor.

    For CIII, we going to try something a bit more complex, but not sure what yet...

    I say if it's a boy, name it Boba. And if it's a girl......name it Boba anyway. If it's twins you can name them Boba and Jango... ;)

    We are still working on both boy and girl names. Right now all I want is healthy, not hung up on a boy or a girl :) Thanks all :)
