chubby chew!

as my friend chris likes to refer to full babies, we do have a "chubby chew" on our hands. after going through life with a beanpole kid, it's nice having a baby who sits in her highchair with her mouth wide open waiting for each bite to hit her lips. her large stature was evident at her 9 month check-up, where calla weighed in at 19 lbs 2 oz, more than greta weighed when she turned one (she was a little over 18 lbs then and only weighs 25 two months shy of her 3rd birthday). i tried to find the "fattest" picture of her i could...and had to throw in a few others!

this is from the summer...but i think it captures her size quite well.

our christmas pic...she really smiles likes this all the time- at strangers, the wall, her pink chair, it's amazing!

and greta...lately i can't help but think she is such a little girl. here she is sporting her first braids, which she now wants all the time. "i want braids like maja." someone loves her cousin!

way to go, calla! she's inching up on aaron, who, when i took him to HIS nine-month checkup last week was 19 lbs. 9 oz. good to have healthy and happy kids, no matter their size. :)

merry christmas, all!

That first picture of Calla in the Bumbo is WONDERFUL! Oh, how I love the rolls. I also was thinking what a big girl Greta has turned into. How does it happen so quickly?
