L O L Oh no, not I... I came from a healthy Italian woman ROFL no in vitro there.

Thanks Butterfly! I appreciate the kind words. I just hope the baby is appealing to more people.

ROFLMAO Thanks! I think the first use of in vitro meant they still used the couple's egg and sperm, so theoretically, you could still look like dad, but I loved my initial reaction to that comment. So I've gotta ask, is your head long and skinny or is it your whole body? LOL

I love JadenKale designs. I wore my Nessie t-shirt yesterday and had several compliments on it. This test tube baby just cracks me up.

One of my friends was the first test tube baby born in the state of Delaware (82 or 83?) This gets my vote! I'll be sure to get him one if it wins.

classssy...

Really?!? That's very cool! Well I'm glad I got your vote then! I'm loving all the information I've learned about this since I first entered it.

This design might do great on maternity shirts.

I really liked the design on purple! I know more people like light blue, and it works well on that, but it just goes POW on purple.

Once this is released, I'm going to do that. I've gotta figure out how the diaper will print if I have cafepress do the shirt, since I have a shop there and they do maternity shirts. Otherwise, I'm thinking of seeing what bountee has for options. I want to either expand my cafepress site, or go to one that won't cause me to compromise my design purely because they don't have white as an option when printing.

As for the purple, I did pick that color on purpose because it DID pop so well. I wish woot would break down and add a purple color to the repertoire. Although, I wonder if I would have only half the votes had that been an option.

This is just too cute! My 2 year old saw this and said, "Ooh! Baby!" I was in early elementary school when this happened and this was the topic of recess. My friends and I couldn't quite figure out how they got that baby to live in a test tube! We had a friend who was quite knowledgeable about s e x (especially back then for a grade-schooler!) and she told us all about it. We were quite skeptical anyway!

Thanks Even my mom got a kick out of this when she saw it this weekend. I almost had the baby waving from the testtube standing in a holder, but this was much easier to create, IMO. plus, the look and the design were just more interesting this way. I'm glad that you and your 2 yr old enjoyed it so much!! I'm glad this has gotten so much positive feedback!

Heheh... yeah... I remember seeing a news story about this when we were kids and my parents wound up having to explain to my sister and I how baby production /usually/ worked. I remember thinking they were clearly making it all up. There's no way THAT would lead to babies. :-)

ROFLMAO! I suppose that would have been confusing then. I could see it now "Well, normally the Stork brings the baby... wait, you guys are 5 and 6... um well when mommy and daddy kiss they make a baby... no... because then they'll never date.... Messy things happen and god creates a baby..." *Throws up their hands* "ok, before test tubes, babies began in tupperware... yeah... they'll believe that."

Heheh. My parents were awfully progressive when it came to explaining it to us. They saw the news story as an opportunity to discuss it in a relatively mature fashion. Maybe you can blame it on them being teens in the 60's, but my parents told us exactly how babies are made with no sense of it being a shameful thing or giggling matter, and certainly not something that should be repressed and not talked about. As a result, each of us as adults had developed a very mature, very reasonable attitude about sex. We all made it to adulthood without a single teen pregnancy or STD scare and we've all had great track records in relationships.

Of course, when I was first hearing about it, there was no way I thought it actually worked that way. :-)
