whats in a name? (fat baby in a little diaper, part 2)

we call him Pudge, Paunch, Chancho, Chubaroo, Chunk, Butterball Turkey, This Little Piggy, Ham Thighs, Big Boy, Strong Boy, Biggie Smalls, and any number of spur of the moment pet names that convey his growing girth.

the point im trying to make is this a big boy!
 he is 4 and a half months old, he weighs 18 lbs, he is 27 inches tall!

he has grown out of size 2 diapers and is on to size 3, he has grown out of many of his size 6 month summer clothes.

looking back at Dominic's charts he was this size at 9 months!!
let me just say, i did not expect this, i thought he would be about the same size as Dominic. boy was i wrong.

but who doesnt love a roly poly baby? i know i love him.

first flight and free advertisment for Heitz Sign Company

our visit to the Outer Banks, NC  could not have passed without a visit to a historic site, because i love history.

 this visit to NC allowed us an opportunity to visit a historic site that was not located in the midwest. Kittyhawk. go visit the web site for more picture of the actual location. these are my family photos of the trip.
 i could not pass up this opportunity to show off my little "genius".
this is at the top of the hill that the memorial sits on...quite a walk, i must say, especially when carrying my 18 LB butterball in the Moby.
 Dominic stands here  reading the marker in the spot where the first flight commenced.

 ya like his choice of wardrobe? swimming trunks, sandals,  a fedora and free Heitz Sign Company tee shirt. we joke in our family that we have a contract with Mr. Patrick Heitz, owner and my former boss,  that if we go out as a family at least one person in the group must wear a Heitz Sign Company tee shirt. so far Miles is the only one who does not have one. what!? theyre comfortable...and they were free.

clean and dry

the heating element went out on our dryer (again) so while we are waiting for the part to come in alternate drying methods are necessary. monday i hung out clothes, but yesterday there was a chance of rain so i took one load to the laundromat.

 dominic found ways to entertain himself.
"we are at a drive in movie"
 "the name of the movie is 'Spin'" he told me

and now more pictures of my baby
 one of my favorite things about his personality is how much he LOVES the bath.
look at those chubby baby legs!!
i know this one is a little out of foucs, but i couldnt resist this adorable little face.
