chunk off


 the other day at play group we decided to have a chunk off.
you know, make it official.


my friend elise's baby is a real tank, but i'm proud to say huck held his own.


it was close, but huck's extra knee roll may have taken it.
have you ever seen a roll on a knee? 
(not over the knee; i mean, on the knee.)


it's pretty flippin fantastic, is what.

  1. I have a three month old and I keep hoping he will add some more rolls to his little body like your adorable Huck. Except when I am giving him a bath and think of all the extra crevices you are scrubbing! :) But oh he is delightfully chubby!

  4. oh my goodness, he is one of the cutest babies i have ever seen... and i think he may even be fatter than my son was at 5 or 6 months which is sayin' a whole lot.

  5. Oh my goodness, I could eat your baby. But that would kind of be bad. So maybe I won't!

  6. That is one gloriously fat baby. Good job; King Huck wins again!

    This post makes me very glad that I'm heading to UT tomorrow to squish my fat little niece. (True, she's got nothing on Huck, but she's got a plethora of delightful pudgery.)

  8. and 3. i totally thought from the stoop i saw in those images that you might be in NYC now and not in that place where you would run and visit the horse behind the fence. and you are. you're in NYC. so strange. reading more now.

  10. Half of a baby's cuteness factor comes from chunkiness. I'm so glad you celebrate this. :]

  11. I love the 80s pic of you and your mom! And I must say that Manhattan 1st has a grand tradition of fat babies--I used to admire them when we were there. Good to see Huck is carrying the torch. Alas, my own children have been more like skinny frogs. They tell me #3 is measuring big, though. I guess we'll find out when I pop in July!

  13. The Huck has to be the cutest of squishiest babes ever. Such fantastic chunkiness!!

  14. Hahahahahahaha!!!! My pork loin had the roll on the knee. My dad still calls me to ask what I'm feeding him bc now he's three and they still think he is just too husky. The kid likes to eat. And if I want an Oreo at 4pm he surely does too. My stepmom told me she called my baby legs "thunder thighs." I've never recovered from that one. Really though, fat babies=skinny adults. I swear!!!

  17. Oh goodness, Natalie, he is very high on the list of cutest babies ever... seriously.

  18. what a chunky little cutie. omg.

  19. Seriously he is so adorable! Is it wrong to find the idea of having a non-chunky baby odd? Perhaps it's just normal to me because 6 months into my life I weighed a quarter of what I do now...

  20. Oh I love a fat baby. My first was 20 pounds at 3 months! My MIL was so worried, but we make big babies in my family and that kid is now a totally buttless, super skinny 9 year old. :)

  22. I can't wait to have a fat gurgly baby.
