Birds, Bees & Petri Dishes

A while ago I wondered aloud on this blog how I was going to answer Keegan's eventual curiousities. More specifically, where babies come from. More specific than that where did Keegan come from. I did see a book recently that covers all different types of familes in one glossy page. But that isn't exactly the approach I am looking for. I want to celebrate our journey but not lump him together in a general "special babies/families" category. So I decided not to worry about it because that by the time it becomes an issue, surely someone will have written the books.
It turns out that they already have. I am not endorsing them because I haven't gotten my hands on one yet. But I am definitely thinking about it.

I got this reference from Daddy Types. He makes mention that "If you need more than one, you should probably be on the Today show." Which is funny because for the next pregnancy I might need the separate, "The Story Of A Frozen Embryo."
