Even though my wife’s only eight weeks into the pregnancy and the kid’s just two centimeters long, today we could see fingers, a heartbeat (at 167 beats a minute), and the occasional wiggle.


  1. Way cool!

  2. Wonderful, Austin!

  3. Very exciting!

  4. Congratulations IF! Only what… 29? and you have already beaten Kant in one area! Next up- a Critique of Pure Lovin’. Give M a high-5.

  5. Herzlichen Glueckwunsch! That’s great news. You’re the second couple I’ve heard about today (and the third within the past week) that’s expecting a child.

    so if it’s a boy, would you not dress him in a sweater that has buttons on the left side?

  6. Congratulations to you and Melita. That’s fabulous news indeed! Will be praying for you both…er, all three of you!

  7. Well this material that i’ve been with patience patiently waited for so very long. I need this material to complete my process in the college.

  8. That’s great news. You’re the second couple I’ve heard about today (and the third within the past week) that’s expecting a child. go here

  9. Offer a useful academic factor and enhance up their promotion outreach to associates. criminal defense lawyer

  10. I was stuck outside my garage in oklahoma city and had no idea what to do. I then called for garage door repair in oklahoma city and found just the right company to fix my garage door for an affordable price. garage door parts okc

  11. If you want to keep us quiet, stop encouraging cops to break up parties. All that leaves you with is angry, hammered colleged kids now in the streets as opposed to a basement who are pissed off. I don’t see how that gets you anymore sleep.

  12. The fallacy he commits by arguing that the good deeds of some wonderful BC students excuse the malfeasants. I don’t know about the do-gooders, but I do know that it’s a rare Saturday night I get uninterrupted sleep. Agen Bola Terpercaya

  13. At least I haven’t found one. I have 3 years’ worth of monthly uploads stored locally in 3 folders (72 in all) that I need to link to one of my WP Pages and uploading them one at a time through WP is something less than state-of-the-art. venus factor

    SI Associate Editor Austin Matzko is going to be a daddy! See the ultrasound pictures on his blog, Il Filosofo, in “il feto del filosofo.”

    [...] Happy Thanksgiving! Those of you who read my husband’s blog have probably figured out why the debut of my new phlog was delayed. We have a debut of another sort expected in June, and that has been a bit of a distraction for me physically and mentally.
