This is as close as I've gotten to photographing a smile.
You see this little guy here? He weighs fourteen pounds. When I went to my six-week checkup last Thursday, I did the weigh-myself-with-baby-then-without thing on the doctors' scale. It indicated he weighed 14 pounds wearing a dry diaper and a onesie. Meg weighed 13 lbs 10 oz at FOUR MONTHS. I assume, even subtracting the weight of diaper and onesie, Paul weighed that much. He was six weeks exactly. Meg's weight is from 4 months 7 days, so about 18 weeks. Paul weighed almost a pound more at birth, but still! Wow! By what age are babies supposed to double their weight? Is it 4 months? I bet Paul does it by 2 months. (He was just under 8 lbs at birth.) Using Meg's growth charts to order diapers for Paul seems to have been a pretty stupid thing to do. Anyone need 400 size 1 diapers?*
Who you callin' chunky?
14 lb baby, 26 lb toddler
*Actually, I plan to try using them as sort-of inserts inside my Thirsties diaper covers. I'll let you know if it works.
