Two years ago today, little Anthony came into our lives. I posted a note a couple days later, you can read it here.
He's gone from 5 pounds 2 ounces, to a still-small, but very intelligent youg boy. He has a vocabulary of probably several hundred words, speaks in mostly complete sentences and can actually converse with you. This morning, on the way to church he said "Anthony wants to take his hat off" (he speaks in third person). We told him it was ok and then he said "Anthony takes his hat off". Then he added "Oooo, look at me."
Grandchildren are great. I can't wait for more.
(Here's the complete post from April 2, 2006, just after Anthony's birth)
Back in November (I think) I blogged about Anna. Now it's Anthony's turn. Coming into the world on 3/30 weighing in at 5 pounds 10 ounces, he's an amazing little thing. I've never held a baby that small (the twins were smaller). Even so, he is a force to be reckoned with. Lungs as powerful as an adult. Stuff that comes out is as strong as anyones.
I always said that babies were a sign from God that he intended for the world to continue. A miracle from God, babies teach us so much. Anthony has the ability to teach his parents, his grand-parents, aunts and uncles. Or to be used by God to teach them.
Here's to Anthony and all that he brings into the world...
