While searching my blog and Elliott's to see if I had written Sophie's birth story (I hadn't), I found lots of pictures of Sophie as a newborn.  It was fun to show them all to Sophie.
I remember that Sophie had lots of hair, and I never really knew how to style it.
For some reason, this hairdo wasn't a keeper:

Emma was 8 days late and weighed 7lbs 5 oz.  Sophie was 6 days early and weighed 8lbs. 5 oz.  Andrew was 2 days early and weighed 8lbs 3 oz, and Ethan was 9 lbs 2 oz at 4 days late.

My brother Hugh is getting married (yay Hugh and Emily!) on August 14, which is my official OB chart due date, and the Open House my parents are hosting is on August 21.  So I'm kind of hoping to deliver a little late, but then again, I'm probably going to be huge and swollen, so I will be praying to deliver early when August is upon us. (excuse the bad grammar... I'm tired.)

I'm taking guesstimates:  When do you think Henry will be born, and how much will he weigh???

Do you want me to hit Lyle for you??
Our #5 was 8lb.11oz, and two weeks early... why don't you just wait until I can get there, and have a 7lb.8oz. Henry?

Charles said...

Henry will be 1 day late and 8lbs 4oz. me.

I didn't know Lyle and Milo were so close in birth weight. Milo was our #5 and he was 8lb 12oz, only he was almost right on time. It would be nice if Henry could wait till your Mom was able to come out, so I'll hope for Aug. 23 (our anniversary) and 8lb 10oz. Good luck!
