Here are the chitlins in 2011:
(Look, Noah and Daniel are still wearing the same bathing suits they did last year. They've certainly grown taller, but their little waists are still...well, little!)
About 6 weeks before this picture, Noah had his pacemaker inserted...you can still see the bottom of his scar is more red (fresh) than the upper portion, and you can see the circular bulge in his abdomen where the pacemaker is located.
(2007: The two weeks that we were supposed to be down at the time share exactly coincided with the 2 weeks that we were supposed to be in China meeting Daniel...we decided to go meet our precious baby boy instead of going to the beach!)
Noah was still in diapers...and was apparently feeling a little camera-shy! Elisabeth was still into running around naked! (In case you can't tell, I just drew her "bikini" in with our photo editing software!) 6 weeks prior to this picture, Noah had his second open-heart surgery...his little chest and belly are still so swollen in this picture they look like they're going to pop!
O.k., o.k., so this isn't "The Sofa". In June 2005, Elisabeth's first June with us, my parent's timeshare in Daytona was closed for repairs (gotta love those hurricanes!)...so Laoli and Elisabeth and I spent a week at the beach in St. Augustine. I couldn't help but include this picture of Libeth from her first ever summer trip to the beach! Look at that sweet belly!
