Oh Dear. What Have We Done?

Well, it would appear that the rumors are true. We went in to the doctor's office on Monday and they confirmed that Audra does indeed have a small human-looking object growing inside her. They used a fascinating state-of-the-art device called the "Ultrasound" to display the image you see now before you. They even moved it around Audra's stomach, and by golly, that little thing has a heart; and get this, it's actually beating! The doctor says that it will continue to act like a parasite and feed off of the nutrients that Audra takes into her body, until one day it will be too large for Audra to sustain inside her. It will then be "discharged" from her body in a most disgusting and painful manner. The doctors predict that that day will be July 29th of this year.
Here comes the scariest part; after discharge, Audra and I are going to have to take care of this miniature human.

All I can say is...what on earth have we gotten ourselves into?

People have been asking if Audra and I have any preference as to whether or not this little creature is male or female. In fact, many of my family members have predicted that it will be a little girl. All I can say is that we'll be happy with whatever sex, as long as it's not a mixture of both. Also, it better be a boy. Just kidding...but not really. As for now, we're just referring to the little thing as Skeezix.

Miniature humans are the best. Especially ones that slightly resemble you.

Congrats guys. Very happy for you.

You are funny. Hopefully it doesnt resemble the real Skeezix, the cat.
