Bubba Phat

When we got pregnant with JK, somehow the nick-name "Monkey" entered the picture. When he was born, it just stuck. What's funny is that we call him Monkey so much that he answers to it like his own name. It's also pretty cute that he LOVES monkeys. He's got several stuffed ones that he's attached to, but in general a monkey-anything makes him happy.

When we got pregnant with EK, we just called him M2 for Monkey Two. I still call him that occasionally, but it's kinda gone by the wayside as time goes on. At some point in the last few weeks, the nickname "Chubba-chubba" came up, inspired by his little chub rolls and my friend Wendi that called her son that. Chubba-chubba morphed to Bubba, which morphed to our latest version by Daddy...Bubba Phat. Some pictures that might show WHY the name is appropriate.


Chunky cheeks...



A big round belly...



And my personal favorite...the roly-poly thighs...



And baby toes just because...



On Thursday, we had our two month well-check with Dr. N. We knew our sweet boy was a chunk, but had no idea his stats would look like this!

Weight - 13 lbs 7 oz (95th percentile)
Height - 22 1/2 in (75th percentile)

Sheesh! JK was always (and is still!) such a petite child that we were a bit taken aback by the numbers. (JK wasn't 15 lbs until close to 5 months.) Anyways, EK's been given a perfect bill of health even though he'd love nothing more than to nurse every hour every day. (Maybe he'll slim down once I go to work on Monday?) He's really starting to smile and coo and we're seeing his little laid back personality come out, which is really a lot of fun!

N and I feel so very, very blessed to have this adorable new little boy in our lives and really look forward to seeing our family adapt to being a family of four.
