your baby looks like a ladybug. maybe that means you're having a girl.

can you please clarify what the doctor told you about this picture? is it's head up? so the ladybug part that i'm seeing is it's body?

hmmm.

hey! wait! i see it's eyes! geez. it looks like an alien.

maybe your baby is a hermaphadite. that would explain why i see neither hotdogs OR hamburgers.

hermaphrodite. thanks.

hahah! it really does look alien-ish. in this picture, the head is on the top and the torso is under the head. you can see eyes and a mouth, stomach, heart and spine.

oh no! i misspelled it! i generally spell it:

HER-MANphadite (okay, phrodite) because it has a "her" and a "man".

heehee!

is this a word you have to spell often? before yesterday, in response to your horrible statement, i am pretty sure i never had occassion to type it.

(disclaimer: i am really not a sensitive person, i am just giving jes a hard time. she has issues with "smooth delivery" as evidenced by her claim that my baby is dual-sexed and how she orders food at restaurants.)

sad. i have never been known to be "smooth."

i need to take smoothness lessons. anyone offering to help me out?

also, amanda, i want you to know that last night before i drifted off to sleep, i was plagued with the question of whether i am socially inept. am i just a socially awkward person?

gosh. i REALLY need help.

...and if you squint and turn your head to the side you can see an itty bitty weenie!

So this isn't really baby-related...

I happened upon your blog through a series of random links and I thought I would leave a comment because I'm an Amanda Sue too! Although when adding the Sue to my name, most people shorten it to Mandy Sue.

And oh yeah, congrats on the baby! :)

hmmm...i still couldn't see it. next time, highlight it in hot pink. i mean, blue.

Blogger Amanda Sue said...

you CAN'T see it. that is the point.

Blogger jes said...

oh. well then, i'm glad that i didn't say, "i think i see it!" because, for a moment there, when i squinted and turned my head to the side, i was sure that i DID see it.

It looks like a little "Snowman" in your belly. Also, it appears your baby has a big head from this angle... is this from you or your husband? ;)

(Kidding of course... nothing like a complete stranger saying your baby has a big head.... at least I am not a close friend that says your baby looks like a hermaphodite... lol. )

ben, i am sure there is no way you could have known this because i have never posted it before, but daniel IS part snowman. and daniel does have a very big head. he wears a special neck brace to help him hold it up. and, i am part ladybug, and half hermaphrodite. so everyone is correct!

hooray!

Never good to tell a pregnant woman her baby's head looks big. Not encouraging news.

Though with daddy being half-snowman, which makes Baby 1/4 snowman...perhaps his head will take on some shrinkage while traveling towards the light.

daniel is part snowman? i never knew that! amanda, how could this have never come up in our conversations?!?
