Who's the Daddy?

The Great Day has arrived! :)

On 16th September at 8.55pm BST, the Gnomads became parents for the first time. Hababi, a little girl, weighed in at 8 pounds and one half ounce. Hababi is strong, healthy and beautiful. The Gnomadette, after a serious complication, is now recovering and doing well.

There is much rejoicing in the Gnomad Habitat

The Great Day approaches

The Gnomad is on a high state of alert, Gnomadette's waters have broken and labour has begun. The arrival of Hababi is imminent! :)

further encroachings of beigeness

The Gnomads have been out buying soft furnishings and domestic paraphernalia such as scatter cushions and picture frames. The Gnomad habitat is becoming very much more "civilised" and, therefore, the Gnomad must be doing the same. Alas, Middle-Age beckons ever more strongly.

It appears that the imminent arrival of Hababi (due on the 22nd of this month) is causing a sudden rush of maturity to the Gnomad's psyche. At least these purchases were not pink.

A previous shopping expedition lasting a marathon 8 hours and causing the Gnomad's credit card to go into meltdown, saw the purchase of every imaginable item of baby related paraphernalia, almost all of it pink, all of it very cute indeed.

The Gnomad wonders if there is a critical mass of cuteness, and also what will happen when this is achieved, as it surely must be, in the next few weeks.

The sonographer had better be right in stating that Hababi is a girl.
