Extra Credit


You remember the nerd in your class who always had to do the extra credit? Well, sadly, that's my son Bennett. At his 4-month appointment this week, he measured 100 plus % for height and weight. What does that even mean? Is he the tallest, fattest baby on the planet?

He looks normal to me (jr was a fatty too and now he's normal, and even thin for his age), but other people tell me he's the fattest baby they've ever seen. "But don't worry," they reassure me hurriedly. "I like chubby babies."

I'm not worried. There's just more baby for me to kiss, that's all.

Hey Adele! I'm so glad you found my blog! Read away...and I will add you to my blog readin' list, if you are cool with that. :)
Your little man is so stinkin' cute. I absolutely LOVE chubby babies. I have always wanted a baby with some chub, but my babies are always so scrawny. I'm hoping Taly will chunk up soon for me.

You get extra credit for posting these fabulous pictures.
Bennett is perfect in every way.

YES! All I ever wanted- more pics of Benny baby (kind of like Beenie baby, but WAY cuter and even squishier)! His haircut makes him look so much older! Oh gosh, I love that boy :)

um... THAT is not the fattest baby I've ever seen. He look solid, yes. Well fed, yes.

If you want to see the fattest baby you've ever seen, you need to see my husband's baby pictures.

No joke.

Like, Michelin tires no joke. :)

Cubby babies are the best and always the cutest! I expect all of mine to be chubby (it's a requirement)! He is adorable and you are so right: the more baby to love the better!

Steph said...

Aw, I love chubby babies too! The chubbier the better :)

Marie said...

ah! love bennett and his chub! my little naomi is pretty lacking in the baby-chub.

ps: i still have you're books and we should still get together so you can meet my little munchkin.

I have to say I'm jealous of the chub. My girls aren't all that chubby. I expected it since I was thunder thigh baby but I guess teh girls got my hubbies filipino genes. I'm seriously bummed they aren't chubby. Abby's almost 3 and can still wear some 12-18month clothes...I need my babies with a little meat to nibble on!

Jessica and Boston said...

Oh my goodness! I never even remotely thought that about him! He looks like a normal, cutie baby to me!!
