A Laughing Stork Flashback: Ultrasound Reveals… A Belly Party?

Originally posted on February 19, 2009.  Hard to believe this was 15 months ago.  In some ways, it seems like yesterday.  In others, a lifetime ago.  One thing is for certain:  This ultrasound was VERY telling.  She’s a party girl, fer sure.

Now, I am no doctor, but something about our little girl’s 12-week ultrasound struck me as… curious:

Unusual, no? I thought the baby was supposed to be the size of a lime at that stage — not have a lime in her fruity cocktail? Yet there she is, smirking and totally chilling in her hammock with a Daiquiri! *SIGH* I don’t remember reading anything about this in What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

In all honesty, the ultrasound technician laughed when she saw Baby posing like that and did indeed say, “Looks like all baby needs is a cocktail in there!”

That’s our kid, all right.

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
