No "normal" baby

The milk monster is of truly monstrous proportions. He weighed in today at 4.9kg, having been born 30 days ago at 3.49kg. He is growing much faster than the average baby, so mummy is obviously doing something right. He has enormous hands, which makes me suspect he might grow to be very big indeed. When we got a puppy at 8 weeks, all the farmers said: 'ooooh, look at those paws; he'll be a BIG dog." OK, so they didn't say "ooooh" 'cause Scottish farmers would never sound so camp, but that was the idea, anyway.

Nurse thinks we will see a proper smile from him soon.... will post OF COURSE when it happens ;)

    A proper smile as opposed to the funny "I've got wind Mum" grimace that babies do.

    The first real smile is amazing!!!
