I became a father five years ago. The Newt weighed in at 9lbs. 7oz. and was 20 1/2 inches tall. DD tried for hours to push the little fella out. She pushed so hard she almost changed the earth’s orbit. Nothing.
The problem was that his head circumference was 14″. DD’s pelvic circumference was 10″. A C-section was in order, so off we went. I heard the nurse say “Wow. No wonder…” as she pulled the Newt into the world. He was the biggest baby in the nursery that night.
It’s hard the believe he’s 5 years old now. Finishing pre-school and getting ready for his first year in kindergarten this fall. So many moments to cherish and hold onto forever.
Happy Birthday! I Love You Buddy.
