Gabe as a very serious toddler
Unfortunately, this is me as a small child. My mother claims I was cute, but I kept cutting my own hair.
And me as a new baby
I dont think Im unlike other expectant mothers - who worry CONSTANTLY that their offspring will end up coming out looking like a hideous monkey. I thought Id dig up these old pictures of Gabe and I, to see how cute or tragic we were as children - and attempt to guess what our baby is going to look like. My number one hope/prayer is for some dark hair on its head when its born. It can have crossed eyes, club feet, or even weigh 11 pounds for all I care. But PLEASE let it not be BALD! My sister claims that those sweet blessed pregnancy hormones trick you into thinking you give birth to the worlds most genetically gifted/ beautiful baby ever! And that it isnt until when they are around 3 months old, and your brain starts to function again, that you realize maybe it wasnt as cute as you once thought. But by then, you already love it so it wont probably matter! I guess if it turns out as badly as I am fearing, that it can have a killer wardrobe to compensate. And Gabe and I both agree, at the very least we'll make sure it has a dang good sense of humor. Because you can get away with being unfortunate looking as long as youre ridiculously funny.
* Small disclaimer - I promise that I will like my baby no matter what.
