A night on the town

At three months, Alexander has started wearing his 6 to 9 months clothes. We weighed him informally at home a week or so ago, and he weighed about 19 pounds. He's probably over 20 now. He's at least 25 inches long. He wasn't stretched out completely when we measured him.

We decided it was finally time to take him out on the town. It caused quite a stir.

Great picture, I'll look for this in the National Enquirer! By comparison, Brenna is 7 months this week and maybe weighs 17 lbs and is about 25 inches.

His glare alone killed thousands - what a mess.

Ummm, by "Andrew" I meant that his cousin is also gigantic and has destroyed the neighboring cities.


Wow, I am definitely the worst aunt ever (Or am becoming more and more like mom?) Please forgive me.

I really do love this picture more than anything in the world though.

What's wrong about becoming like Mom?
Seriously, most babies don't fit the ridiculous sizing for clothes.

Christine, we need to talk!

I had a feeling Alexander would be bigger than Brenna by the time we visit. We'll definitely have to get a comparison shot.

Christine, you are not alone. My dad and stepmom made the same mistake, and Darrick's mom called him Anthony a few times. Apparently, you all don't realize just how mammoth he is. He will crush you like so many taxis for getting his name wrong.

Really, don't worry about it. No big deal.

Mom, you're sweet. I'm sure the sizes are off. They are off even within a particular size range! But still, he is off the chart in height and weight (above the line marking 95th percentile). And his height has started to surpass his weight. We could tell when we put these footie pajamas on him and they were loose on the chest but being pulled really taut by his feet.

I agree with the clothes comment, Brenna is wearing anything from 6-9 mos to 12 mos at the moment.

Ok let's be honest, Alexander is the next NBA star, Shaquille O'Mallon

Yeah, and babies love it when you have to undress them repeatedly because this size 6-9 months outfit is three times smaller than this other size 6-9 months!

Mom, I would love it if he played basketball. Everyone keeps commenting on football, and I think, eek! No! He'll get hurt! I know people get hurt playing basketball, too, but football players seem to get hurt every time they play. So I guess we'll have to think about paving our drive or a small spot in the backyard to put up a net. We've got some time, though!
