My Little Squirt is 39

Can't resist showing you the little cutie Steve was. He was born 39 years ago in Gia Din, a suburb of Saigon. He weighed 4 lb, 10 oz, and had congenital syphilis. This was quickly cured with penicillin, but if his mother had not cared enough to go to a hospital to have him, he probably would have died. This was the first picture of him we received in January.

We expected to say hello to a small, thin baby in April. Instead we got a healthy 17-pound hunk of a boy! I think he wore this cute jumpsuit about one week before I could no longer get it on him.

Since he doesn't read my blog he can't protest in embarrassment. Oh, and he no longer lets me call him Squirt!

He was ( and, probably still is )
adorable. My youngest always objects when I call him my baby...all 6'4" of him.

He's almost as old as I am. Time flies. It seems like yesterday that I was that young.
