Sumo baby: An update.

LIL BUDDHA

At some point, I'm sure her mom's gonna get after me for calling her Sumo Baby, but, in my defense, I didn't say she was (and I quote) "as cute as a little bulldog." That would be my brother-in-law. Anyway, there's not much new to report on little Malia. I did, however, discover she currently weighs the same as a healthy 3- or 4-month-old (and she's only about 4 weeks old in all actuality). What else? Well, I do admire her ability to sleep through pretty much everything. Her mom keeps saying that she sometimes wakes up and eats and cries now and again, but I remain the skeptic. Every time I have seen her, I have seen a sleeping baby. And, while I have not held her very much yet, I do remain enamored with her cheeks. They really are rather humongous. Look for yerselves.

Oh, and I should point out that this is not a baby blog. They just happen to show up here sometimes.





Malia's impression of an old man giving me a dirty look.





"Give me ... surprise! Yes! Perfect!"

She is so cute!! We know all about sumo babies in my family. My sister's last baby weighed in at 13lbs!

While I keep my fingers crossed that gigantic babies come from her husbands side of the family, in my opinion, there has never been a more effective birth control.

That sounds very anti-baby of me. It really wasn't meant to. I just have a healthy respect for child birth.

Woah...those cheeks are amazing. The fourth picture makes them look huge! What a cute baby. She looks a little like Max.

i hear that bigger babies usually are more content and sleep better. the cheeks look very kissable, which is something i've been known to do to babes.

I'm a little in love. She's adorable...and the bulldog description? I read it outloud to my co-worker after showing her these pictures, and Dainon she said about you, "Oh, he's a mess."

Well, I do hope you clarified that I never said that. I just quoted it. There's a difference, y'see.

Just give in and make this whole blah dedicated to Sumo Baby. She cracks me up. I want updates every day. Slap a luchador mask on her every once in a while too, will ya?

those pictures are hilariously awesome. i love this kid - all babies are cute, but sometimes you get a little bored because they all kinda look the same at this age. not her though - she came into the world with style!

does this dress make my cheeks look fat? i couldn't help but wonder that with the cute blessing dress on her. very kissable. who wouldn't just eat up those cheeks?

Sherpa said...

Oh the co-worker didn't hear the bulldog description...just Sumo Baby, and the rest of the post.

Oh my, what a big, but beautiful, baby! I don't envy the delivery that must have brought her here, but I do envy the contentedness of her sleepy world.
