My baby boy turned 4 Years Old this week!!!
August 10, 2004

8 pounds 12 ounces

Yes, I am well aware that I look like a Hot Mess in my hospital picture~ I gained 70 pounds with Josh~ there was nothing 'cute' about me when I was pregnant. I was a fat, sweaty, uncomfortable slob:) I was so happy for those LONG 9 months to be over. I was so happy to hold Josh. I am Swedish & Irish . . . so I was not expecting a tan baby with a full head of black hair!!! He was VERY cute (proud mom:)~ I would just stair at him all day thinking . . .

Dear Lord,

This is not what I was expecting!

We celebrated his birthday at Chuck E. Cheese's!!! It was thrown together last minute but everything turned out Great~Praise the Lord!

And guess what he got for his birthday . . .


Tigger is not handling Frankie well.

Josh is spending some quality time with his grandma this afternoon . . . so I thought I would blog for hours! I don't want to iron, clean, cook, do laundry, watch TV. I just want to sit here & read blogs. I hope you are all having a nice weekend & enjoying the Olympics! I have never really gotten into them before~ but some of the athletes this year are SO amazing!!!

Are we talking about hot bodies or athletic skills, cause both of them totally WIN in both categories! Speedos crack me up. The patriotic one is a hoot.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH!!! The party looks fun! The conversation holding bit is awesome. Frankie is precious, and Tigger made me LOL big time! haha I can just HEAR the hiss. Awww, you don't look bad- you just had a baby! At least you didn't gain the weight in your face! And you def look fabulous now! (umm, how did you do that? I still haven't gotten off my last 15)

This might be a touchy, perhaps personal request, but I would love to hear about your son's father! I've never heard you mention him before..?

Your boy is sweet and you're gorgeous! Post more pics of yourself!!!
