Flashback Friday

So, lemme tell you right quick...I have these four frames. I bought them all when I was pregnant with Ava, in case they stopped making them. Little did I know we'd be moving to Guam and it would be like they stopped making everything ever invented. People give me crap about buying tons of useless junk "just in case they stop making it" but hey, who's laughing now!!!

Anyway. Each frame has twelve little holes, and you put in a baby picture for every month for the first year. Ava's I did every month, and that was easy. Scott's...I did the first two right on time, then I'd wait until I had about three (or maybe four...) months to do and I'd do them all at once, just a teeny bit late. Warren....uh...Warren's was totally empty until today. BUT I did all twelve holes today, and truthfully, he'll never know. Well, unless one of ya'll tells him. In which case I'll tell him you are a big fat liar and he should never ever listen to you again.

Point being, I got to look IN DETAIL through the first twelve months of his life. Sigh. What a sweet boy. Maybe it won't be the end of the world if I have another boy. But it will still suck.

So here's a few flashback shots of Team Engelbrecht. These were all taken between ten and fourteen days old, so they're weird looking.

What in the world is she so scared of?!?!

This doesn't even look like one of mine. Perhaps we brought the wrong kid home for a few days, then someone figured it out? And, uh, switched back? I mean, if I weren't here to TELL you that this is Scott, would you EVER in a million years think it was?

And here's Warren. Anyone wanna man up and agree with me yet? Little bitty babies ARE NOT CUTE. Ugh.

Ooh, I can't resist. Here's a few more, of my little Ava. She (for one) quickly outgrew the string bean awkward stage and became The Cutest Kid Ever Born. These are from April 2007, when Scott was born. She's seventeen months. She's YOUNGER than Warren is now, and I've just rocked her world by bringing home a new baby. What kind of mother am I? But anyway, HOW FRIGGIN CUTE IS SHE?!?!?!
