He's how big?!

Four things in my life I'm truly thankful for:

  1. my beautiful, perfect daughter
  2. my loving & faithful husband
  3. my wonderful family & in-laws
  4. not having to give birth to a baby over 10 pounds!!


On Wednesday my best friend, Amanda, of 8+ years gave birth to a beautiful (and huge) baby boy. Eric Daniel Gonzalez tipped the scales at 10 pounds, 3 ounces! Amanda was in labor for over 16 hours and gave birth naturally because the epidural didn't work (and how does that even happen?!? Those doctors have some 'splaining to do!). Needless to say I have a newfound respect for the woman!

Welcome to world, little guy!

Other large babies of note: ME! I was 10 pounds, 6 ounces! Sorry, Mom!

So sweet, but not not so much as to make me want another one.
