Fat Baby

I am posting this picture of my daughter Leah for the benefit of my girlfriend Chau. We were talking about chunky babies on the phone this morning and I was reminding her how BIG Leah was. A real porker. She was also quite flexible. The doctor always said "well, she is certainly well fed."

Leah at 5 months of age:

It is amazing how quickly four years flies by...

Look at those legs! You just want to squoosh them....Too cute!

Chubby baies are just cuter! Leah is no exception. She went from a chubby baby to a very pretty girl.

William was a chubby baby, too. I remember, at three and four monthes, he was very chubbyu. And I felt really proud, because at that point, he was only breastfed. Made me feel powerful!

Thanks for posting those pics. It made my day! Something in those Asian genes really encourages a chunky baby :-)

There is something about a chubby baby! She's adoreable. Collin is moving out of that chubby stage a bit now and I miss it!

Oh, my Peanut had the chubs too -- particularly at that age. She still has cheek chub, although her legs are skinnier than they used to be. But we think the chubby cheeks come more from mommy's Sicilian genes than from daddy's Chinese ones. I'm 37 and my cheek chub isn't gone yet, unfortunately...

Oh!! She was a chubby baby!! Kai-Li was also quite chubby at that age...but I think Leah has her beat!!

I've seen chubbier. My friend had a baby sooo fat (chubby really isn't the proper word), his feet were more like balls w/ 5 tiny little balls for toes hanging off of them.

And the one month picture...ahhhhhh. So sweet.

It's hard to believe that the little ballerina that you pictured last week is the same child. The time has gone quickly, hasn't it? If I remember correctly, it was Leah that was the first to crawl in our group despite those chubby little legs! :0)

Oh my...look out Gerber baby, you've got some competition!! Leah certainly was a beautiful baby, and she is an adorable little girl now.

She's perfect!

I was chubby as a baby and looked like a little boy.
