Wonderful News!

Or, to put it another way: did you notice that I changed the quote on the top of the blog?

Here it is:
Plato, Symposium (206c5-8):
ἡ γὰρ ἀνδρὸς καὶ γυναικὸς συνουσία τόκος ἐστίν.
ἔστι δὲ τοῦτο θεῖον τὸ πρᾶγμα, καὶ τοῦτο ἐν θνητῷ
ὄντι τῷ ζῴῳ ἀθάνατον ἔνεστιν, ἡ κύησις καὶ ἡ γέννησις

when a man and a woman come together in order to give birth,
this is a godly affair. Pregnancy, reproduction—this is
an immortal thing for a mortal animal to do

Seriously amazing stuff.

Really growing too—here she or he is on July 12th:

And here's 11 August:

Love that leg! And in the one on top of this post (also from August 11th)—that little hand!

Can't wait to see her or him on (or around) February 19th!

All right, reader. Guess that about covers it.

In the meantime, we're off to monitor some marmots!
See you soon.
