The Pre-Natal Little Monkey

The Little Monkey celebrates 3 months on the face of the planet today; which means that a year ago (± 2 days) a tiny clump of cells had popped into existence that would develop into our lovely little baby. As a scientist I suppose I had an intellectual conception of life’s commonplace miracles, but when it’s (partly) your own DNA that is swirling around to create a new life, the realisation that one has an unbroken connection stretching back 3 billion years to the very origin of life is rather striking… Anyway, I thought this was as good an excuse as any to post some pre-natal pictures.
