I thought I would load a newborn picture from each of the kids to see if there was any family resemblance. Alas, Lizzy and The Boy’s pictures were not digital and our scanner is possessed. It will scan the pictures and then hide them somewhere impossible to find on our computer.
This is the earliest picture I could find of either Lizzy or The Boy already on our computer, so it will have to do.
So, no picture of Lizzy as a wee babe at all, but how cute was she as a 2 year old? And this picture is The Boy at almost a month, but really, that’s okay. His newborn pictures were brutal looking. He was pretty big (9 lbs. 4 oz) with a huge, and I mean HUGE head. AND, he came out face side up. So, not only did he break a collar bone during delivery, but his face was swollen and bruised. We have one picture of him where he looks like one of those Ultimate Fighter guys, complete with the swollen shut black eyes… Not pretty. Poor little guy, he did not have the most graceful entrance into the world.
This one is a freebie.
The first picture of all four kids together. I am dying over how squishy and young they all look to me. How has 2.5 years gone so quickly? And to keep with our record of terrible family pictures, it appears that Jane is picking a wedgie or something.
My due date is less than a month away. This is tripping me out. I will have another baby in less than a month. For reals less than a month because if she hasn’t come out on her own by the 27th I will reach up there and yank her out with my bare hands. Who will she look like? Will we ever choose a name for her? Will Kitty try to throw her out a window? So many questions are bouncing around my head these days.
