Since Adam has been putting the pictures of his fish, I wanted to show off Joshua's first fish. For some reason the picture when posted is just a grey box. What a downer. So anyway, here is Joshua fishing at 2 years old and he came proudly home with a little cut throat trout. He was so proud. I hope he catches more next year! He hasn't really caught any fish since beside helping Adam reel in a couple pinks that had to be tossed back.
So, with Lily, Star's baby, nearly ready to come out and greet the world it made me think of my little princess when she was born. 5 lbs 14 ounces at birth, she was tiny and beautiful! When we left the hospital she was 5 lbs 8 ounces I think. So sweet. She was the easiest, most content baby I ever could have imagined. Here she is having her first nap with her big bro. Joshua was exactly 18 months old when she was born, still on a bottle and in diapers. I can hardly believe it because it is so hard to remember even that far back! What beauties.
Annabelle on our way out the hospital, 1 day old. I don't know that the car seat would have really done any good if we had had an accident. Thank God that he protected us. I remember bringing her out to the van and fastening her in and Adam looking back and saying with a bit of a nervous sigh... so the van is full hey? He couldn't believe that we actually had 2. He got used to it really quick because he took paternity leave from work for 6 weeks and changed a lot of diapers in that time! hahaha He was great and loved her to bits.
And then exactly 3 months later she was a wopping 12lbs some odd ounces, not so tiny anymore but boy was she fun. Still content and wonderful. Joshua loved her.
Thanks for joining me down memory lane. Hope all is well and you all have a great day!!!

It amazes me when I look back and see the size she was. But, she is more beautiful now than she has ever been and I look forward to seeing what God grown her up to be like. I love the memories but the future is always more exciting I find!
