...M and I got to talking about what we hope our baby will get from each of us. Keep in my that we will be ecstatic to just have a healthy baby, and we know that it's unlikely that the baby will exhibit all of these qualities. We will love our baby dearly no matter what, but we just thought it was fun to think about the things that we love about each other (and our hope that those things will show up in baby).
I said I hope the baby has his skin tone (he tans, I burn) and clear skin. He hopes the baby has my eye sight. Then we got to talking more and thought of some other things...we hope baby has his straight hair and my metabolism. We both hope he/she has his inclination for music and sense of humor, as well as my organizational skills and empathy.
Since we are both relatively short and don't have perfect teeth (well, I do now, but that took 3+ years of braces), baby probably won't be tall or have a perfect smile (sorry baby!) M and I are both pretty smart, so hopefully the baby will take after us there :)
Whether baby has any of these traits/characteristics really doesn't matter. It's just fun to imagine what half me and half M will make.
