Having shown only a passing interest in the movements and development of his daughter for the first 7 months (largely confined to shoving the Bump to make her kick me while he giggles quietly) the Boy has now swung into action. He has bought two books and is reading all of the bits about what fathers should do, we had an informed and interesting discussion on breastfeeding, he has bought a brilliant buggy (that is designed for you to run with and had to be imported from the US), car seat, a super dooper monitor thingy, and he is insisting on making sure I have everything in my baby bag ready for hospital.
As I write this he is currently sitting on the floor, fixing something on the door. I can only suppose this is a male form of nesting.
