Beany Baby

I'm having a baby, and it's the size of a bean! Just like the Itchy Feet guy

That's right, soon we're going to be hearing the pitter-patter of itchy feet around the house! :O

We're on the twelfth week now - that ultrasound was done on the eighth week, which was two days before we left for a ten-day trip to Japan and Abu Dhabi! Naturally, I just had to make a passport for the little guy. So that's exactly what I did, out of one of my old German passports (I'm a dual citizen):


Used the early ultrasound as a passport photo:


We even got it stamped:


The Japanese one was just a tourist stamp, but the Emirates one is a real passport stamp! My wife asked the guy and he didn't understand English, so shrugged and stamped the tiny passport ^_^

  3. So that was you who posted the story on reddit. I thought that American husband, Italian wife, living in Berlin and traveling a lot sounded familiar :)

    Congratulations on the little bean!
