So Big

Today is Younger Son's birthday, and Fio will follow a long-honored family tradition and tell you about the day he was born. Younger Son was two weeks overdue and, we knew, a big baby. So big, in fact, that--well--he got stuck, and Fio was wheeled into the operating room for an emergency C-section. So big, in fact, that the nursery's newborn diapers were too small for him and the nurses had to send out for the next larger size. So big, in fact, that visitors would look their the window at their babies, then say, "And look at THAT one."

Not 7-11, but 11-7. Eleven pounds, seven ounces.

Happy Birthday, big boy!
