well, i know this sounds odd -- but TODAY isaac turns ONE, gestationally. :) ha.
my original due date was sept 12th.
isaac had no regard for that date, however, and decided to Get Out Now on august 1st.
i can't even believe he used to weigh 5lbs.
he now weighs 25lbs.
and needs to start walking immediately, if he plans to gain one more ounce.
i was going through some of his preemie clothes to donate (trusting i never have that experience again) and found a onesie i just could not part with. it's the smallest thing i've ever seen. i look at it and marvel that i can hardly remember him being that tiny.
i know it's probably hard to get a perspective of how small that is....
so i placed it next to a baseball cap. the cap was bigger than the body of my baby...
compared to a DVD.
compared to my blackberry...
i remember him being small...but there were so many more pressing and scary things going on, that by the time i stopped to smell the roses...he had already packed on a few lbs and didn't seem that small any longer...
he should be one today!
i love you, baby!!!
Happy Birthday...again. ;)
