Height and Weight, Please

At Tobin's checkup today, he weighed in at 12 lbs., 12 oz. He's been gaining about an ounce a day since we brought him home. He's 23.25 inches long. His doctor assures us that he's 97th percentile and above pretty much across the board -- not that his parents are surprised. In fact, if he maintains his current pace, he could rival the Colossus of Rhodes (pictured) by the time he's 20.














Yes, we know his dad is a nerd for thinking of the Colossus at a pediatric appointment. And yes, you can click on the picture to learn more about the Colossus (the Toblossus?).

so all i'm saying is..perhaps you+allison and me+loran are somehow creating a new breed of GIANT BABIES who will somehow,someway take over and either do good orrrrr evil. i'm thinking this boy in my belly is the new SHAQ.

FINGERS CROSSED FOR GOOOOD.
