Sssh…I think I hear people talkin’. They won’t hurt me, will they? Is it dangerous out there?

Oh Papa, my toofers are coming in, and these fingertails will come in handy for scritchin’ the itchies.

Blahhhhh! Did you hear that noise I made? Ha Ha!

I’m learning to use my lungs by breevin’ fluid.

This thummie comes in handy. It kind of ends up in my mowf lots of times.

(earliest stage that partial birth abortions are performed)
~
Mommie!
~
She can’t hear me yet. I’m not afraid now, Papa. Mommie won’t let anyfing bad happen to me. It’s safe here, nice and warm and comfy.
~

Watch me grab that umbilical cord and spin around. Whee!

I’d better rest up; I worked up a sweat.

Watch these peepers work! I‘m almost all grow’d up. I can sense that Mommie is getting’ grumbly.
