|Judging from how many teeth I have, I am probably a year|
|As a toddler covered with puppies|
|Can't quite see how big Steve is here. Mom did not believe in breast feeding|
|Steve is about 4 months old|
Initially Naomi was seeing an OB during her pregnancy (until the insurance said we had to drop her and go to the midwives). The OB had a policy of never letting a mother go beyond her due date. But Naomi was not sure when she became pregnant. Maya's due date was decided (and it kept changing) by her size on the ultrasound. What happened if she was large for gestational age (and given that she has two very tall parents, likely) and they took her out too early? I was glad to see her go.
Both Steve and I were close to 10 lbs as newborns so I guess we both maxed out our size advantage. Our babies were big babies that turned into slim toddlers, children and then adults. Their babies so far are averaging a pound less than they were.
There was a conflicting story about rapid weight gain in early infancy leading to obesity later in life. Yep all my babies were off the charts for size. I nursed them and let them suckle as much as they wanted. Their babies were chunky early babies that slimmed down considerably by the time they were a year. Would one put a 6 month old on a diet? I think not. And everyone in our family is slim, except me of course. I was fairly slim until menopause and a whole series of medical challenges hit. I will do something about it next year. I want to look good for the Big Hollywood wedding in late May.
So dark and dismal this morning as I went out to exercise. At least it was warm. Unfortunately I do have a slow leak in my tire. At least I am not thinking about who possibly sabotaged my tires. Maybe I can get one more ride in before having to go back to the repair place.
Merry Christmas to all my readers!!!
