Flashback Friday

I have been reading this blog for a while, and the woman has started a new tradition. She is the mother of 10! She is waiting for her newest son to come home from Africa. Anyway...her new tradition is called "Flashback Friday" She posts pictures from the past each Friday. For me, it is to remind me how quickly my children grow up...and how fitting that I participate for the first time on November 14!! This picture is one of the pictures taken of my "tiny" baby boy, Andrew at just a day old (born Nov. 15, 2001). I say "tiny" because he was anything, but tiny!! He was born a day early at 9 pounds 2 oz!!! OUCH! I love my little man! He started out big, but now he's just a normal boy...even wearing a SLIM jean! Go figure. I praise God for my little man. He is such a joy. He makes me smile, laugh, and love. He is rather frustrating sometimes, but he is MY little man and I love him! And, just to compare...here is a picture taken just weeks ago at a wedding, dancin' it up with his sisters!

Loved the baby pic, and loved the big kid pic too! (how cute of your kiddos dancing together) How big were your girls when they were born? I'm just curious :)

Abbigail was a tiny peanut at 5 pounds, 10 oz...17 months later when Andrew was over 9 pounds I SWORE that if they nearly double in weight I was DONE having babies. 2 1/2 years later, Bethany was 6 pounds 14 oz...a nice middle sized baby...no 20 pounders for me!!1
