He must be growing

Patrick is a big guy. He's feet and hands are ginormous. He can wear size 12 clothes and he wears a size 4 in shoes. I remember Maggie wearing a size 4 shoe when she was around 18 months old. I've stopped buying shoes til he's walking; it's just pointless to keep buying shoes for someone who doesn't need them and goes through them so fast!

He's not chunky in his tummy, but he has huge cheeks and lots of rolls on his thighs. Nikki (who babysits for him on Sundays) said that he even has rolls on his knees.

On Saturday, he woke up around 7:30. He fell asleep at 9:30 and slept til noon. He woke up and played and tried to pull up on the sofa for a while. He fell back asleep at 2:30 and slept til 5. He woke up and played and ate and fell asleep at 7 p.m. He slept all night.

I was telling Kim and Brynn about this. They both said that he must be growing. Brynn said, "but how could he get any bigger?!".

Sundays are pretty crazy, so he didn't sleep as much, but he ate all day long. He was just starving all day. Then, he woke up at 3 a.m. and wanted a bottle. He never wakes up in the middle of the night.

So, I think we have a big guy on our hands.

Man you have a good memory. I couldn't begin to tell you what size shoe my kids wore at a certain age... I have to look in their shoes now to remember! But it does sound like a growth spurt. A big healthy boy... what a blessing!
