Lil' Monkey Face

173 days and counting

Today is our 5th visit to the Gynaecologist. In just a month, Baby's grown quite a bit.

Our Gynae gave us a split-print. On the left is a shot of Baby's... erm... nuts. Hehh! The right is a side-view of Baby's head. He's got a distinct face now. We've got nose, eyes and lips! Woohoooo!!!

Baby looks like he's got a nice nose. He seems to have inherited Mommy's nose. Which is good since Mommy's got a nice, Tom Cruise nose. Daddy's got a film star nose too, but unfortunately that "star" is a Hong Kong actor and he's bug-ugly!

By the way, is it just me or does Baby looks a little... erm... simian-ish in the scan. Hehhhehh! He looks like a tiny little monkey from the nose down. Which might explain why he's agile as a monkey these days, kicking up a storm inside of Mae.

Well, monkey or not he's God's gift to us. And that's all that matters.


  1. My Simian friend,
    We all came from the same family tree. Although some of us have gone back to our roots ( telekom's underpaid phone monkeys, the malaysian govt's monkey business, the Politician's going bananas), rest assured baby didn't.
    To be sure, don't give mae bananas :lol: And this being a monkey year and all, avoid monkey art .
    endorsed by
    the 3rd commandment for simians.
    Thou shall not use monkey names in vain

  2. this is the first time i see a scan of a baby boy's errr... nuts. he looks damn fine!

  3. I'm one of those people who absolutely have no clue what they're supposed to be seeing when presented with an ultrasound.
    So when you say that all the..err.. parts are where they should be, I'll just take your word for it, dude! :)

  4. He will be beautiful just the way he is. :) He might inherit some of the grandparents' features too, though! (And what's with the two different countdowns - one 173 and the other 110 days?)

  5. Come to think of it, KA, Mae has recently developed a taste for bananas! :lol:
    Thanks, pickyin. Too bad I can't show you a video instead. You should see the little guy in action.
    LOL, Sashi. To think that I was like that too just a year back! Believe me, if its your kid, you'll know!
    Thanks Strizzt. Baby is 173 days old. He will be born in 110 days time! :)

  6. Oh, okay. A potential Merdeka day baby. :)

  7. he 7th commandment for simians.
    Thou shall not go bananas

  8. We're hoping, Strizzt! Merdeka kids get gifts from the government! :lol:
    Too late, KA! :)
