Francis, 1 day old (January 9, 2005)
He was born at just under 32 weeks gestation.

Francis, December 2009, and Toby (the next time I saw Francis after September 2006)
Francis, Fall 2010 (1st grade — he skipped kindergarten: smart boy!)
Today is his 6th birthday.
How did he get so big? My sister says he looks like he’s about 13 in this photo, and I have to agree.
And, I should be an aunt again this summer. Francis and his new brother or sister will be 6 1/2 years apart.
Happy birthday, Francis. I love you.
Happy Birthday Francis! It has been a pleasure watching you grow.
And, congratulations Aunt Rebecca!
A belated Happy Birthday to you, Francis. And Aunt Reba …. I like the way that sounds. When I was a kid, Joey, that lived next door, had an Aunt Reba. She taught him more bad habits … ah, but that’s not you, now is it? No. That’s not you.
