Pinkness Abounds

The Gnomads have just returned home from a standard check up in hospital. Specifically an ultrasound scan to check on the development of their soon to be expected baby.

Hababi* is due in another 18 weeks or so, so preparations in the Gnomad habitat are going on apace, much infant related paraphernalia is being purchased and carefully stored ready for The Great Day.

The exciting news of the day is that Hababi is a girl, so purchases of infant related paraphernalia will now be concentrated almost exclusively on things that are coloured pink. The Gnomad expects that this will, in the not too distant future, include pink paint for the walls and pink fabric for curtains too!

Appropriately enough, both the Gnomad and the Gnomadette are feeling in the pink.

* from the arabic "habibi", loosely translated as "my dear"
