Time flies when you are having fun, or so they say. My children are such treasures. I can hardly believe it has been almost 5 years since Emmaleigh was born. It seems like such a short time ago that I was experiencing mothering a newborn for the first time. Emma had lots of black, fine hair, and looked like me from the beginning -- she still does, except for her blue eyes! She was 7lbs. 4oz.
Mandy Rose was born just 2 years ago. She had less hair than Emma, but it was still quite dark. She had the most fabulous lips. Mandy looks a lot more like the Peters. So much so that we've jokingly called her "Jeffica" at times. She was such a hard newborn in comparison to Emma. But she made up for it with her smile. She started smiling contagiously at just a few weeks old. It was awesome, even if I was sleep deprived and nursing every hour. She was 7lbs. 10 oz.
I must admit, Remington looks a lot like the girls at birth. He is 7lbs. and 14oz. His hair is much lighter and I wonder if his dark eyes will be the dominant brown like me or stay blue like the girls and Jeff. He is such a great baby. He is easy and I am thankful for that. It's fun to see the comparison.
