At 10lb3oz (50th percentile for a 3mo!) you'd think he was a tough birth. In actuality, he was my largest baby, but by far my easiest birth. at 2:00 am on 11/30/02 I politely informed the nurse that I was pushing and she needed to get the midwife. at 2:01 am I was screaming at the nurse to get the effin midwife. at 2:02 am the midwife came in to catch (she heard me yelling - the nurse was convinced it was "too soon"). at 2:03 am I was cuddling a very big baby!

Friday, he was flirting with a little girl in his karate class. he invited her to his birthday party. on the way home he informed me that he loved her and that she is beautiful.
Sunday afternoon the big boys attended a birthday party for the 10yo next door. they were the only boys with a bunch of 9 and 10 year old girls. Andy was doing his own thing - as usual.
but Ryan.. well...
Then yesterday we realized we were in BIG trouble. there was a note in his backpack from his teacher. he kissed a girl during rest time. (her father knows where we live....). the teacher explained to him that we only kiss family. when I saw the note, I went in the other room to
whatever lady is lucky enough to land him (eventually) will get a great husband though.
