Mmmm.. honey dipped babies..

While things could be better right now, they could also be worse. And the one upside of being in a hospital is that they hook you up to weird technology, like the ultrasound machine that produced this image of our as-yet-unborn bub. I’ve animated it to make the features clearer:
Awww, so cute. And so orange...
And before anyone worries, no, it doesnt’ in fact explode in the final frame; what’s happening is that a computer is simulating the “look” of the baby based on the ultrasound info it’s got, but it can only extrapolate so much; if there’s a lack of info or distortion, you get a distorted image, like you do here.
