Baby Faces and Blankets

Remember that one time that you went to see the doctor and he started talking to you and you just stared at him blankly because even though there were actual words coming out of his mouth you couldn't understand them at all and for like a whole 27 seconds you found yourself wondering if you were still in the same country and if he was really speaking English? But then you started to pay attention and realized that you could understand the little words like "if" and "the?" Why do they do that? I mean, I get that there are medical words that are just medical. You know, like "hemoglobin." But why do they use REALLY big, important medical terms for super normal easy to say phrases? For instance... every single time I've had a baby I hear this question --

"Have you been ambulating?"

And I'm thinking, "Are you kidding me? I don't even talk to my husband about stuff like that....oh wait...you mean WALKING? Why yes, yes I have. Thank you for asking."

I can honestly say that now I am grateful for all those medical terminology lessons. Because I had a baby in South Korea. And "medical terminology" was our common language. Who knew that all this time those fancy talking doctors in America were simply looking out for my future welfare and trying to impart a very important language lesson? So, you know, maybe you should pay attention next time you go to the doctor. You never know when you will end up in South Korea having a baby.


P.S. No innocent baby was neglected in the making of these cookies. Daddies need tiny baby cuddle time too.

P.P.S. Please try to overlook the weirdy-ness of the pictures. I took them kind of quick. Mommies need LOTS of tiny baby cuddle time.
