Pictures of My "Baby"

Well, if I have managed to do things properly - I may have some pictures for you! I am sure that I will be having my husband send out invitations to my funeral when this is all said and done!!
This is my "baby" about an hour after I gave birth! At that moment, the person taking the picture was probably grateful that the camera did not have a strap on it or it would have been wound very tightly around their neck!!!!! Yes, I had those dorky huge glasses and yes, I was actually that skinny at one point in my life!!



This is what was commonly referred to as the "Sumo Wrestler"!! A short story to go along with "His Chunkiness"...this child literally ate ALL THE TIME. We started out with a bottle every two hours. Then we went to the bottle and cereal every morning and evening when he was about 4 weeks old. Then we went to the bottle every two hours, cereal every morning and evening and three small jars of baby food for lunch and supper. Okay - so do you get the general idea? And yes, those every two hour bottles went all 24 hours every single day!!!!! He started at 5 lb 7 oz and at 6 months we were at 16 lbs. If you have seen him recently, you know that he NEVER took a break except for the 3 months at boot camp!!!

And this is just probably one of my favorite pictures of David when he was a baby! He was usually pretty happy - unless of course you were not feeding him fast enough!! The reason for this smile was more than likely his Dad who had the ability to get him to smile just about anytime!!! A side note - this picture was not taken at my house...note the ghastly wallpaper in the background!!


It's funny - I was somewhat emotional yesterday. (I know shocking, huh? Just ask Donna!) I was looking back over some pictures of past years and realized that time has flown by so quickly. The rest of it will go by just as fast. I am determined to see Jesus and make sure that my children make it to heaven also.

Leah hello, I just want to let you know that when I read your blog it made me think of me. I have my moments and it will probably never go away. Time does go by quicker then we can blink it almost seems.
Keep close to Jesus He is the one that will bring you through. Love & Prayers, Eileen
