Ten Pounds, Eight Ounces

It's a bouncing baby boy!

Had you going. Actually it is a boy with a full backpack.

Our oldest son's school is doing a food drive again this year. The kids are asked to bring in a can or two to contribute to the food drive for those in need. Since we are in the process of moving it looks like a win-win situation! I started going through the pantry and just started grabbing left and right. I put away the glass jars for fear of what his backpack would look like by the time he got to school.

All in all I put 10 cans in his backpack, totalling 10 pounds, 8 ounces. Hey, that's only 14 ounces more than he weighed. (The math on that is 9 pounds 10 ounces, yup...).

I wonder if I could have gotten any more in that backpack.

Maybe I'll shoot for 20 pounds on Monday!

My "little" girl weighed 9 lbs, 8oz. I couldn't try for a third because I was too afriad it would end up over 10 lbs. I wanted babies not turkeys.
