Bubble Coral baby?

I've been watching this little "bud" on the base of my bubble coral. It started out as just a white "dot" and has grown into this...

You can see it at bottom center. At first, I thought it was the bubble coral "budding". Then I thought it was an aptasia - but I've seen those and this just doesn't look like it. Just a few minutes ago, I found this on wetwebmedia...


About 3/4 the way down that page, there's a photo and thread about a "baby bubble coral" and the picture kinda looks like a bigger version of what I have.

Anybody out there with bubbles see anything like this before? I'm getting a bit nervous, as I also have three more smaller "buds" forming now also. You can make them out along the upper portion of the stalk.

Looks to be a "bubble bud" :P Somewhat common throughout the hobby, but congrats nonetheless
