Don't you hate it when you try to microwave something for 20 seconds and then come back 5 minutes later and realize you put it in for 20 minutes?

This post is a warning to my kids: I'm losing my mind. Get ready.

Big, Bigger, Biggest

I'm still scanning photos. I'm starting with the baby pictures. Which really means the birth pictures. Here is a comparative shot of me just before giving birth each time. These photos are not in chronological order, but rather order of tonnage.

I was big with Rachel, in spite of having nothing to eat except sweet potatoes for 9 months. (That was an exaggeration, but not much.) I gained 17 lbs during the pregnancy. Rachel weighed 2690 grams and was 46 cm. long. That is, 5 lbs, 15 oz. and 18.5 inches long.

I was bigger with Andrew. I gained 30 lbs during the pregnancy. He weighed 8 lbs, 6 oz. amd was 22 inches long.

I was biggest with David. I gained 50 lbs during the pregancy. He weighed 9 lbs and 8 oz. and was 21.5 inches long.

Back to Scanning

This is one of my favorite photos of those we took when baby David was born. I remember the precious look and Rachel's and Andrew's faces when they first got to see him.

I've finally recovered from the holidays and got my house and office back to normal. So I'm back to scanning. I have LOTS more boxes of slides to go, so I hope to do at least a few each day and just keep chipping away at it. Lucky you, I'll post a few good ones here from time to time.

Thank You

I have received emails from a few friends saying they were praying for me to get out of the dumps. I appreciate them taking the time and initiative to contact me.

I am feeling somewhat better, but I'm still not my usual cheerful self. Wait. Have I ever been my cheerful self??

I don't feel very inspired to blog much these days either, but I will blog when I feel like it. I am writing this now to just say thank you to those who have prayed for me.
