Chunky Monkey

As the double chin and chubby cheeks in these pictures can attest, Rock is no longer a petite newborn of 8 lbs. 1 oz. In fact, at his one-month doctors appointment, he weighed in at a whopping 12 lbs. and 6 oz. That's right folks, Rock has gained about a pound a week since he was born! So, now we affectionately refer to him as Little Chunk, Little Munch (used to be short for Munchkin, but now it just refers to his ability to eat), or Chunky Monkey.
But the extra weight does make for some pretty cute cheeks!

Well, he and Clip are in close competition! Clip was 13lb.4oz on Monday....but then Rock IS three weeks, I think he wins! :) I've already started switching Clip into his 3-6 month wardrobe and just moved him up to size 2 diapers because he kept leaking out of his smaller ones.
Doesn't it go so fast?!
p.s. You're right, he does look more like Stephen in some of those pictures! I'm sure we'll see more of you as he gets older! :)
