Fat Freddys


Everyone says, “Oh, they just grow up so fast!” and I never really got it. Albie REALLY did not grow up fast at all! I would hanker for the next size up in his drawers and put him into far too baggy clothes just to feel like we were moving faster than the snails that we were. But this guy? This Fred guy, is definitely putting the pedal to the metal.

It is incredible.

That is all.

Is it okay to write a post just about how heavy your baby is? If you’ve not battled with your child’s weight you might be a bit mystified by my total fixation with these numbers, but I reckon if you have battled to get weight on your child, you’ll no doubt be fist pumping alongside me. 


  1. It’s fine! Henry gained acceptably, but Emma, whoa. But I guess when you come into the world at over 10lbs (4.5 kilos) like she did, then you’ve probably got a leg (chunky, chunky little thigh) up on things. I think she’s finally slowed here at 14-15 months. It’s a nice balance, to hold the 35lb preschooler on one hip and the 28lb toddler on the other.
