Her nose...

Friday the wife and I went in for yet another ultrasound. This time we got a 3D scan, which showed us how Kenadie actually looks. Instead of looking like Skeletor we saw the baby's features, and by God if I didn't see some of me in her. She seemed to have my nose. That may just be the result of the scan, but I don't care. This is my child floating about in my wife's womb.

I had to leave the appointment as soon as it was done. As I exited I saw a man in the waiting room holding his infant in his lap. His face beamed as he was attempting to make the baby smile. He looked up at me and gave me a proud grin. I smiled back and I guess he knew I was envious.

The reality of being a father grows with each day. Soon I'll be exhausted while caring for a human being that can't possibly do anything on their own. How the hell the human race survived infancy is anyone's guess.

When is she due? I've never seen a 3D scan like that before, very interesting!
