Sometimes important days come and go. Like my due date. (Which was yesterday.) This baby will officially be a March baby……not a February one like we had hoped. Little stinker. We’re still hanging on for her to come but wow it’s hard to wait out these last few days (or another week? Eek!). I really am learning some patience. Now grace, that’s what I may need to work on.
And what sort of girl wants to come out a linebacker?
I know 8’6″ isn’t huge……but it’s still a pretty big baby. Just check out the thighs on that little lady. She came out with those yummy little rolls. Oooh, I still remember that sweet day.
And then this guy……they didn’t even put him in newborn diapers. And all the nurses came in to see the 10 pound baby. Excuse me………9’10”. Ha! Just looking at this picture makes me want to scoop him up and smother him with kisses all over again. Oh, that little squishy belly. Ahhhhh……..
But just check out this chunk-a-lunk of a baby. Yep, that’s me. Ha! (It’s okay to laugh…..me and my siblings always did growing up.) In my defense, my mom said I lost a pound of water within the first day. My poor little swollen face. I barely have eyes, they are so smashed from those chubby cheeks.
(I let my little boy see this picture and he said, “You was cranky mommy!”
Ha……I guess it looks that way!)
Don’t worry, my face stretched out a bit by the time I was 6 months. (Or is this 8 months? My mom will be here soon, I’ll have to ask her.) But I still had those little rolls………probably until I started walking.
Did your moms put little single curls on the top of your head, like mine did?
And excuse the ripped/tattered pictures.
I mutilated a lot of my baby pictures when I was a little girl, without my mom knowing. Oops.
We have made guesses as to how big this baby will be.
Awwww, I can’t wait.
You know, so that I don’t actually deliver a linebacker. ;)
(Back to normal posting tomorrow. Unless of course…..well, I don’t want to jinx myself.)
