We had our first 3D ultrasound the other day. Thanks to the wonders of modern science, we are able to see the real-time facial expressions of our baby. The frown, the pouty lips, kinda reminds you of someone else doesn't it? Oh yea, that's right.
Heh. Then again, she's all squished up in the womb, it's hard not to look wrinkled and pissed. That's why, my personal (and unpopular) view is that ALL newborns are ugly. They're smelly, slimy, all bruised and banged up from the ultimate spelunking adventure, like a person being forced out of a keyhole. Cute, they are not. Not then, anyway.
Really, ask the dads. They won't freely admit it but you can tell it on their faces when the nurse hands them their babies.
They're going, "Omigod, what is THAT? Did she do this with the mailman? No way can that be mine...". But out of fear of spousal homicide, they smile and force out a tear or two.
Only after a couple of weeks when the swelling and wrinkles have gone away that they begin to morph into little angels.
Well, we have about 3-4 weeks before we find out if our little one has a future in British politics. free smileys
