For those of you who have not had the distinct privilege of seeing the evolution of Lil Sesame through Ultrasound pics (on my Facebook Page), you will not be privy to the news that she seems to have inherited her mommy and daddy’s big ole lips. It’s no secret. My lips are so, ahem, large, that I can literally stretch my bottom lip underneath my chin and my top lip up and over my nose…at the same time. It is the best party trick ever!
I’m not sure where my large lips came from as neither of my parents seem to have them. Perhaps one of our ancestors was a big-lipped Swedish/Ukranian/Irish/American with strong genes that skipped a generation or two. Whatever the cause, they are big and have always been so. I can only imagine how ginormous my lips were when I was born. Maybe my parents prayed that I would eventually grow into them? Dunno. Here is a picture of me when I was approximately two years old, just so you can see how I hadn’t quite hit the “grow into my lips” phase of childhood yet.
Apparently, aside from the large lips, my parents obviously thought that the Little Red Riding Hood Look was totally in!
Here’s a pic of how my lips look now. As you can see, not much has changed, but at least I’ll never have to consider collagen injections!
Don’t ask why my friend Kim took such a close up of my lips, but it serves a good purpose…and that is a good-looking camera!
Here is one of our U/S pics of Sesame at around 26 weeks…
I don’t know about you, but all I see is LIPS! Greg and I laughed hysterically when our tech printed this pic for us.
Yesterday, we talked to a NICU nurse who told us not to be surprised when our premie comes out with a fairly huge head and smaller body (as that is normal). I laughed out loud again as I imagined our baby emerging with a huge head, ginormous lips and a teeny tiny little body. In fact, I’m still giggling about that visual!
Have a great night folks. I wish you all enough…
