This blog (which has been mostly about Charlie) wouldn't be complete without a note about his size. (We'll do our Christmas update later - maybe after I take down my tree...)
Many of you who do not live nearby simply may not realize how large he really is. People around here will vouch for me when I say - he really is HUGE!
We do think he is so big because he will lengthen out to be a tall fellow like his Dad. However, he also does just eat a lot. Between me and him - one of us is always eating. Or often - both of us eating. We eat a lot. :)
When he was 6 months old, he had just passed 20lbs and by 7 months we had purchased the toddler carseat. He still faces backward because he is less than 1 year. He is 8 months old and we estimate he is roughly 23 - 25lbs.
We love our little chunker. He is the chubbiest, rolliest, happiest baby around. We just love every bit of him to pieces.
