As I have been pouring over his new photos the last few hours I kept coming back to just how skinny he is.
Check out those arms.
Joey is a heart baby too.
He always has been.
He's 7 1/2
and he wears 3T shorts.
This is totally normal for these kids.
If your heart isn't functioning properly the first thing your body will typically do is retard growth.
Growth is not it's first priority
But Joshua is
to be exact.
He's also 7 1/2 .
And it's like having Joey's tiny little frame
stretched another foot and a half in height.
I will say if you take a look at the other sweet arms that are helping him open his presents
that they too look skinny.
He just happens to tower over them with his height.
See that cutie in the foreground?
He's 7 too.
If that gives you any indication of how above average in height JJ really is.
Lack of adequate nutrition?
I'm just used to seeing American kids raised on french fries and grilled cheese?
A combination of these and a lot of other factors?
But man I can't wait to be the one caring for him to figure it out.
Day 4 of wait for LOA.
