How Wonderful! (Not that he was almost too big, of course. That's not so wonderful. That's more, "OUCH!")

 

Blogger Donna said ... (9:55 am) : 

He doesn't look big to me; he looks TINY! But it's been years since I've see a newborn.

 

Blogger Holly Schwendiman said ... (10:05 am) : 

See, and now I'm sitting here crossing my legs going "OUCH!" and I've never birthed a child! LOL How big is the little guy now?

Hugs,
Holly

Well, I've never birthed either. :)

How old is he?

 

Blogger Claire said ... (10:16 am) : 

No birthing here either, What a cool picture to post!
A lovely WW (plus some nice words)

Congratulations to you! What a wonderful, joyous event! D :)

Wow! 8.12oz. That's big and I had mine years ago at only 7.8oz.
Mine is up too.

 

Blogger Linda said ... (11:51 am) : 

My biggest was 7 lbs, 15 1/2 ozs which seemed like a lot at the time! My youngest was only 6 lbs, 6 ozs but she was a C-section! Figures!

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful picture!

He was a pretty good size baby. Both of our girls were around 6.7 lbs.~not too bad.

Happy Wednesday.

 

Blogger Mandy said ... (12:41 pm) : 

Wow! Mine was 8.2lbs. You poor thing! Good pic!

 

Blogger Lisa said ... (1:05 pm) : 

That's it. I'm keeping my legs locked together.

Beautiful Baby!

Congratulations! He looks normal to me. I used to be an NICU nurse and was at a lot of deliveries. Sorry you had a rough time.

My daughter was 2oz less at birth. Happy Birthday Riley :)

Grats on the newborn!

Guess-It Wednesday is up! Go take a look and guess!

Happy Birthday Little Man! Seeing newborn pictures is always an amazing thing. Life is a miracle.

what an amazing gift...my little girl came out a little like that too...she just did not want to come out...
Blessings

Aauw. I cannot wait to experience birth! Happy Bday to him! :)

 

Blogger Kai said ... (5:47 pm) : 

Awww, what a sweetie! And almost 9lbs too - he was a big guy!

 

Blogger Wendy Ann Edwina D'Cunha e Pereira said ... (7:09 pm) : 

Oh! wow!!! Here in India we weigh babies in kgs. My eldest, Christiana was 3.3 kgs ( a little over 7 lbs - i think)... and that was difficult . But then I am small myself - just 5: feet so that's just about what I could manage...

 

Blogger Incog & Nito said ... (7:53 pm) : 

Happy birthday Riley. Great photo. Happy WW

 

Blogger TorAa said ... (8:29 pm) : 

This great WW-entry will certainly be a valuable family memory.

 

Blogger Mike Thomas said ... (10:05 pm) : 

Wow. Cute kid...I'm sure. They never look their best 'right after'. Congrats to the parents!

This brought back memories of when my son was born, he looked quite similar, and was about the same weight.

Precious picture.

Happy Birthday to the little-big guy, who's probably a bigger guy today!!
Happy WW, too! ^..^

 

Blogger Beck said ... (5:14 am) : 

Ouch. My big boy weighed 9 pounds, 11 ounces, so you know that I'm really sympathizing. Big babies hurt!

 

Blogger Cat said ... (7:42 am) : 

I had enough issues with my 5lb bag of sugar!! I don't know what I would do with 8lbs!

Newborn babies are the best! :)
