Oh Crap! Realization of the Day … Bye-Bye Baby Fat

I was looking at my naked baby last night and suddenly realized his rolls are starting to disappear. (I’m speaking of my 11-month-old, not my husband; though he is cross-fit crazed right now and looking lean and mean.)

All three of my kids were “healthy” babies—lots of rolls and creases—and I can’t get enough of it. I love me a chunky baby. So, now that my third is in practically a full sprint now at 11-months-old, his rolls are vanishing. But … but … I haven’t squeezed and kissed them enough. I haven’t blown enough raspberries—and, you know the more fat, the better the raspberries. How am I going to hold on to this feeling and never forget how squeezable he is right now?

I guess the only way to come close is to take lots of pictures and video. I already feel like I’ve missed his chunkiest days. So the advice is to put your baby in his diaper—or get him naked—and snap away. Do this once/month until you feel you have captured the most rolls you will ever see. And, don’t forget to gobble him up before you put his clothes back on. As if you needed that reminder!
