When I was pregnant with Judah we knew he was going to be big. I mean, that’s what it seemed like from the ultrasounds. It’s hard to tell with Polyhydramnios though, all that fluid skews things a bit.
When he was pulled out my OB said “He’s not 6 pounds!” to which I said “He’s not even 6 pounds?!” Oh no, he was bigger than 6 pounds.
OK, I thought, that makes more sense.
About 20 seconds later the nurse looked over the blue curtain and said “Erin, eleven O five!” to which I naturally replied “He Weighs 11 pounds 5 ounces?!”
No, that was the time.
Born at a healthy 8 pounds, 6 ounces at 11:05am on Wednesday August 4th.
This is the first photo of me holding him:
And a year later:
Happy Birthday Judah the Tank!
