Birthday boy

See this little scrap? Well, not so little. 8lbs of baby boy, certainly didn't look like he belonged in intensive care with the teeniest prem babies. Dragged unwillingly into the world 3 weeks early. About 6 days old here. Wouldn't eat, didn't breathe too well, not even enough energy to cry. It was the most traumatic 3 months of my life, but it was worth it. Here he is at 10.

Suddenly he is 12, and much less inclined to be photographed, thank you very much. He wears glasses now, and likes his hair long, and his jeans baggy. He shares his birthday with a couple of other Gemini's I love. Happy, happy birthday.

Happy birthday J.

I too have a pic of this little bub looking all sad as a newborn - what a great human being he has grown into :)

Ooh! I think I recognise the Wgtn Library in the photo!

Hello Pixie, and thanks for your comment and your link to my humble (ha!) blog. How amazing that our boys were born on exactly the same day (and had similar difficult starts in life)! We will indeed have to meet up in July when I'm home. Please mail me at antipodeesse@yahoo.fr so I can give you my phone number.
