This year will be a new beginning for me. No, it’s not because of my New Year’s resolutions. It’s because 2008 will be my first full year as a mother.
My son, Levi, was born on Oct. 24. He was a big boy, weighing 8 pounds, 11 ounces and 21 inches long.
At birth he was a healthy, good-sized baby. The pediatrician and surgical team who delivered him were taking bets on his weight. “Whoa! That’s a 10-pounder right there,” someone exclaimed.
“Yeah. I’d say 10-plus,” said another.
