Baby #11 is really seven!!!

Wow, My baby E is seven today. Everyone thought it was pretty funny that my 11th child was 11 lbs. The joke was baby #12 will be 12lbs...not if I (or my midwife) could help it! 

Dear Eric, you are a super sensitive and sweet young man. Daddy and I love you very much and can't wait to see what God has in store for you. This is a big year for you! You get  your First Penance and your First Holy Communion. Keep close to Jesus and everything in life will be fine. We love you forever, like you for always, as long as we are living our baby you'll be!!!

daddy is still mad at me for cutting your hair!

Here I am about to pop two weeks before you were born!
