Fat and Sassy Roly-Poly

The other day I was walking Charlie in his stroller and some guy we passed asked how old Charlie was and then proceeded to delightedly exclaim, "Man, he is fat and sassy!"

I tried to be offended but truthfully I just thought it was hilarious.

But you know, Charlie is a little on the chunky side. (Which, you know, only makes him cuter.) Yesterday I did a little photo shoot with him to celebrate his being four months old now. His cloth-diapered butt and his chubby thighs are so big that he has a hard time fitting in his bumbo chair when he's wearing anything other than just a onesie. I wanted some photos of him sitting up, though, so I propped him up against the back of the chair. And this is what happened.










I couldn't help but laugh. Hard.

And when I turned him over, I didn't feel any guilt for laughing, because this is what I saw.



One fat and sassy, but happy, roly-poly.

(Big props to my friend Becki for handing down this sweater to Charlie. I'm a sucker for argyle, and it matches his quilt perfectly.)

I'm cracking up! LOVE IT!

Btw, just an aside, my brother was a fat and sassy roly poly, too. He hit something like 9 or 10 months and still wasn't crawling. My mom took him in, scared that there was some sort of developmental issue and the doctor flat out told her "P, he's developmentally fine. He is just so big, it's hard for him to support himself to crawl." Oops! Needless to say, aside from still be called by his nickname, "the little round faced kid", he's perfectly healthy 26 yo man today. Just keep it in mind in case Charlie isn't an early crawler or walker. ;)
