    My wife and I have been hoping for a baby the last 18 months and after 3 miscarriages last year, we weren't sure if it was going to happen. She is now almost 28 weeks pregnant with our son and brought me these today. They were supposed to be for fathers day but she was so excited about them she couldn't help but show them to me now.

    I've also been reading to them both at night out of the book Ancient Selfies. Getting him started early!! I just thought I would share because I was tickled by this. :)

    To complement that onesie on the right, see if you can get ahold of one of those silver-dollar baby teethers :)

    While you are reading to "both" of them I'm sure you are inputting some subliminal messages regarding things on your bucket list.

    BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!! It is something special when my little 4 YO guy says things like, "What a cute little coin." or "That ones "silber".
    Aside for my pop he is the next closest person I have to talk about coins with.

    Weird as it may sound; I think I came across a picture in an old coin clinic book with a Morgan dollar bearing teeth marks. Supposedly, it was too big for a baby to swallow?

    Absolutely. Makes it easier to use money outside of my coin budget if I can convince my wife I "Need" a coin and she knows the history of it and finds it somewhat interesting also.

    There are several print-on-demand fabric suppliers. You supply the design and have it printed on raw yardage.

    I made a few shirts from the Crack 'Em Out design. I've also made a scarf with ancient coins (silk fabric), other ancient coin shirts, and a necktie. The tie turned out really well and someday I hope to get back to that project since many of you expressed interest. I had begun to accumulate coin photos of CT members who wanted a tie and I was going to make CT ancient coin neckties for interested buyers.

    Oh, wow! My second girl was born a couple days after that in TN. It was 101 that day, and all the humidity with it! Hope it is a pleasant time for you Two.
