A funny by Luke

So, I have this book Pregnancy Week by Week. It is really informative, especially for a first time mom. I pulled it out and have shown Camilla and Luke the drawings of what the baby looks like at different points in pregnancy. Early on, they were both disturbed by the umbilical cord drawings. I explained that that is how the baby eats and gets nutrients and that that is where the belly button is after the baby is born. They wondered if that was the case for them too, and I told them that everyone is fed that way in their mom's tummy. So, we haven't talked about it in a while and on Sunday, Luke was feeling my tummy and feeling the baby move and the hiccups. He notices my protruding belly button and asks, "Is the milk straw behind that?" Which, he was referring to the umbilical cord (now known as the "milk straw."). Chris and I had a good laugh.
