Please, no pictures
Continuing the long and proud Lewis-baby tradition of being curiously large, Kickbaby weighed in at his two-month appointment: a jaw-dropping 15 pounds.
The nurse said, "I can't remember the last time I saw one this big!"
At 15 pounds, he's in the 95th percentile (meaning, since someone asked last time, that he's heavier than 95 percent of babies his age).
Berry, on the other hand, was a scrawny little third-percentile baby. Her weighings were absolutely pathetic, and people always underestimated her age by several months. At six months old, she weighed a teensy 14 pounds, 8 ounces – that's right, less than Kickbaby weighs at two months.
As I write, he's having a lovely snooze in his baby swing. He suggests that if you devote every minute to eating, sleeping and more eating, you too could double your weight in two months.
