Reason #2514 That I Love Having A Blog

I purposely put Jack in this outfit for a Disneyland day recently, remembering this visit in 2006.

Where Carter wore the very same.

Jack, 2012:

And stood next to his dorky parents and fat baby brother with plaid pants and Mickey ears.

Carter, 2006:

Wasn't he the yummiest baby ever?

I told him once that he was my biggest baby......which is no small feat for a middle gain any title in he's never forgotten it.

8 pounds, 12 ounces.

He reminds Carter and Lainey often.

Why am I skinnier here with a 5 month old in my arms than I am today? 

Diet starts Tuesday!

One of my favorites......

Blogging can be a real pain in the ass.

It takes a lot of time and a lot of patience and it's not always fun.  Sometimes it feels like a job.  But, every now and then, things line up and it's awesome to see where life has taken us.

To see it all unfold.

Since that first trip to Disney with both boys, we've moved from Denver to KC to San Diego and added a kiddo.  Lots can happen in 6 years, folks.

Cheers to blogging!

He WAS a very cute and chubby little guy!

That IS the good thing about blogging- taking periodic strolls down memory lane!

I didnt realize that you had been blogging so long! I waited a long time to start blogging. I dont know why...I was just afraid for some reason. WIsh I would have started earlier! Oh well. Jack was a precious little chunkster!

Wow. How could you have just had a baby 5 months ago in that picture? You looked anorexic or something. WERE YOU?

I love the matching hats with the names. Too cute!

Blogging is so fun!

Ummmmmm... Carter looks sooooo very small in these pictures. And Jack? Yup. Adorable baby.

8 pounds 12 ounces?!? I just feel like that would hurt. And that's pretty much how my porkchop is tracking. She's already 6 pounds and they said she'd like be anywhere between 8 and 9 pounds. Good lord. I was banking on a 5 pound squirt. Not so much.
