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.

Samantha said...

Hooray! Glad baby os here and there is lots of cuddling and cookie-ing!
Congratulations to your whole family!

Congratulations!!! I'm so happy for you. And P.S. I always appreciate medical terminology. Here in Tennessee, doctors always ask me if I've "gone pee" or if I think I can "make some pee." The last time that happened, I put my clothes back on, left the ER, and drove into the city at 4 in the morning to try to get to a hospital with doctors who use words like urinate.

Congratulations to you and your family. So many special times ahead to enjoy.

By the way, I just want to add that if I EVER, EVER find myself in South Korea having a baby I'd find more than a few medical words to utter!!!

My baby girl and baby boy are in their 20's now! The time goes so quickly ~ make sure you stop and appreciate every stage.

By the sound of it I think you will...Have fun ;D

No idea how I got here, but I love your blog! I was looking for some cookie recipes for my first ever Royal Icing disaster (yes, it WILL be a disaster. But a girl has got to start somewhere, right?) and stumbled upon your blog an hour ago. Still reading... Won't be much baking happening for me today I guess) .

Congratulation on you new baby. Well, not so new anymore I guess, but a lot newer than mine. ;-)

I just had to comment on those cookies. They are so cute, the colors are so much fun! But what made me start this comments was this: I am wondering whether it was intentional (I guess from reading a few of your posts and realizing you are, well, funny, I should opt for a YES there) but those blanket cookies might be the first baby-cookies I've seen with actual sperm on them... *grin*

And while we're at it, the flowers kind of look like large eggs about to escape their follicles...

Thanks for showing us the whole process all the way from the separate ingredients until the finished product. The baby I mean, not the cookies.
