Teenager

Tomorrow my son will be 13! A teenager, I couldn’t be more proud, 13 years ago he was delivered by emergency c section at 30 weeks, he weighed 2lb 10oz, he could fit on the parm of my hand, just like my mini 2 can :slightly_smiling_face: The last picture is his tiny hand holding my finger!

I remember asking the midwife “Is it a girl or a boy?”
She held him up and said “Can’t you tell” :sweat_smile:

My youngest was 13 last week, she’s been a teenager for the last 5 years.

I live with 3 women, even the ability to pee standing up has almost been conditioned out of me.

But seriously, happy birthday Master @Sparkyws
