Just Pretend this Post is Dated March 30th Because I didn't Blog Yesterday

Happy Birthday Elder Steve!

This is the one where the epidural didn't work. Or at least the nurses didn't listen to me about how fast I progress in labor when I finally get going.......and the epidural was working after I had him......he wanted to come and the doctor wasn't there yet. See here. (then scroll down a bunch because I can't figure out how to link this properly-it's the birth experiences one) This is the one whose chest was 1/2 inch larger than his head.....ouch..... 9 lb 3 oz.....this was my first baby with serious colic......This was baby #5. Five children is HARD!

But he always had an underlying sweet nature....until he turned 15 and I wondered where my sweet little boy went.....but then he sorta came back.....but with a little attitude....

Here are some more mission photos which crack me up and illustrate his sense of humor:

Let's try a new door approach....but look-what is at that door??


Wait-I think it's lions guarding the door! Maybe we better skip this one! (Hey-I just noticed the army fatigue backpack---umm... that's not the one we sent him off with.....)

Shhhh-go quietly so they don't wake up!

Tennessee-take good care of my boy.......

Heeheehee. I just love Steve. He still does have that sweetness about him. He has always been so good to me & my family. Now I'm getting teary...darn hormones! I miss him, but I'm so proud of his choice to serve a mission.

You have to love a missionary with a good sense of humor....tell him that if Daniel could do it, they should be able to too!
