Oh, my, are the Internet rumor wheels spinning! Speculation is rampant that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are expecting their first baby together. While pregnancy rumors have dodged the couple for a while now, this particular set was apparently kicked off by an Instagram post from fashion editor Ariel Foxman. Foxman posted a #TBT pic of Biel and congratulated her on her “impending motherhood.” Real news slip? Halloween costume spoiler? As neither Biel or Timberlake have commented on the rumors, we’ll just have to wait and see!

Alfonso Ribeiro Is Reprising Daddy-hood!Oct 29, 2014 by Sarah C.
Forget reliving his Fresh Prince of Bel Air days by performing the Carlton on Dancing With the Stars. Alfonso Ribeiro is getting ready to dance to another very familiar routine: new parenthood! Ribeiro announced recently (on Dancing With the Stars!) that he and wife Angela Unkrich are expecting their second … and the announcement came just days before the couple’s son (Alfonso Lincoln Ribeiro Jr.) celebrated his first birthday! Baby-to-be is expected to arrive sometime this spring, and the couple don’t yet know whether they’re expecting a son or a daughter. Either one is familiar ground for Ribeiro, who’s also dad to daughter Sienna from a previous marriage.

3D “printed” heart helps save baby’s lifeOct 28, 2014 by Paul W.
The first 3D printed items were simple lumpy toys. But the technology has advanced fast — and now surgeons have used a 3D model of an infant’s heart to prepare for life-saving surgery.
No, they did not *make* a new heart on a 3D printer! Maybe someday…
Instead the doctors at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital in New York City worked from MRI scan data to make a 3D model on which they could better see how it was “riddled with holes and structured unusually,” The Independent reports. “Surgery was going to be complicated and dangerous, but this 3D printed heart provided the surgeons the opportunity to study the organ, and develop a detailed surgery strategy.”
Kids, watch this!Oct 28, 2014 by Paul W.
Dick Tracy would be envious: it’s not just a watch, it’s a camera!
With the Kidizoom Smartwatch, “young photographers can take photos and videos on the go,” VTech says.
The color touchscreen can be set with 50 clock-face designs.
There’s also a voice recorder, with “wacky voice-changing effects,” and four learning games.
VTech’s first portable camera “watch will create an entirely new play experience for kids 3 and older,” the company says.
It’s $60 here.

Our Pets, our BabiesOct 26, 2014 by Jennifer M.
To Whom it May Concern:
While browsing your website I was shocked to discover that you’ve included “Pet Names” on your BabyNames website. Perhaps a staff or editing member of your site is confused…animals are not humans. They don’t need extra special names. They are not “children”. They don’t need or merit the same great care or love real human beings are required. To see babies equated with pets is disgusting and twisted.
A Concerned Reader,
Wow. Just wow. That you actually took the time to write us and that you are actually offended by pet names. Actually, we’ve built a whole site just for them: PetBabyNames.com!
I, myself, am a pet mama to two cats, Roxie and Brutus, and a dog, Roscoe. Oh, yeah, and I also have a human baby, Miranda. No, they are not equal, but I love them all, with this thing I call a heart. And I must correct you: animals are children. They have mothers and fathers just like you. They have feelings. They love. They have facebook pages.
I’m sorry you were offended by our pet names, but we will not be removing them from our site. I hope you are not–nor ever will be–a pet owner.

Best Time for Baby-MakingOct 23, 2014 by Paul W.
The makers of the Ovatemp fertility tracking app are now offering the complementary ONDO digital thermometer to monitor the start of ovulation.
A woman’s fertility cycle can be measured based on basal body temperature throughout the month, TechCrunch reports, and the thermometer makes it easy to check that, sending the temperature information via Bluetooth to your iPhone when you stick the thermometer under your tongue.
Ovatemp says its methods are based on traditional Chinese medicine.
The ONDO will ship next Spring, and is available for pre-order now for $75 here.
