My huge baby

Oh my heck. I have a huge kid. I mean, seriously, look at those cheeks! I went to playgroup today and it hit me just how big my baby is. I was pregnant at the same time as several of my friends and now we all have little babies. It is fun to see how different babies can be. One of my friends -- we'll call her "Kim"-- had a baby just 4 days before Victoria was born. She took her baby in for her 2 month check up today and she weighed just over 11 pounds. I weighed Victoria today and she weighs about 15 pounds! She is gigantic! I don't know how long she is, but everyone who sees her agrees that she looks abnormally long. I can't wait to take her to the doctor next week so I can see just how huge she is. It's kind of fun having such a big baby because she sleeps really well (yesterday she slept for 13 hours straight!) and everyone is shocked when they see how big she is. But, at the same time, I am sad because she's getting big so fast! This is our last baby and I want her to stay little for a long time so I can satisfy my "baby hunger" and won't want to get pregnant again in 6 months. Life is hard with a 4 year old, 2 year old, and a baby so it seems like my life will get easier as she gets older. But still, I love little, tiny babies.

Hey, my babies were big and I'm pretty sure neither one of them has ever slept 13 hours in a row. Ever. Victoria is super cute. How did she get big that fast?

She's adorable Kristi! Especially since I have "bird babies" with not a roll on their bodies! So sad! Tori is a doll!
