Chubby Baby

There has to something angelic about chubby babies. I had an art history teacher who described her infant's fascination with its own chunky tummy: her baby boy sat in his tub and held his roles with intrigue planted across his face. He couldn’t believe his luck in the discovery he had made. His little eyes seemed to ask, "Have you seen this chunk around my middle? Pretty wonderful don’t you think?"
And it is wonderful. Chubby tummies and dimpled legs is what my little Nugget is all about. Seriously though, momma's milk must be straight cream because Liam has cottage cheese on his shins :). And he couldn't be happier about it.
I hope that I remember every moment of chunky baby love. Every chubby-cheek smile and rolely-polely giggle.

  1. hehe love this. the chunkiness stage lasts a while (at least it has with casen. he's almost 2 and still has some rolls). isn't being a mommy the best?! especially when you are peaceful enough in the moment to enjoy it all and take it in?
