Where’s your brain?

Funny comment from today’s OB visit. After getting a good look (via ultrasound) of the baby’s brain, our doctor snapped off two pictures of it which she handed to Kelly.

“Here’s a picture of your baby’s perfect brain,” she said, “Keep it, so that when he’s thirteen, you can prove to him that he once had one.”

How can you not love a doctor with that sense of humor?
