Sumo Baby: An update.

It's been too long since I threw up a photo of Sumo Baby. It's been so long that she's gone and grown her hair out even ... and, by the looks of things, she looks ready to fight, too.

Now, I guess we'll just have to work on wiping that smile off her face, yes? These things come with time ... aaand practice. Actually, her mom tells me that she's tipping the scales at about 17 lbs. these days and growing out of everything she owns. Bursting right at the seams. And, thanks to a proud, proud uncle (we shant go into mentioning names), she has an older brother and sister who both refer to her as Sumo Baby (as they rightly should). It's what they'll chant in unison when she enters the ring for the first time. Ah, yes ... we have such high, high hopes. Sumo Baby is the Great White Chubby Hope, after all.

And, yes, I gave her the shirt she's wearing. Japan has everything ...

I say the chubbier the better. That's how it should always be.

I can only imagine how the chanting will help her later in life. Really- what else are uncle's/brother's for?

That nickname is going to give her so many life-skills...

Hey, we still have a wilco ticket. You should come on out!

That has got to be the cutest, chubbiest baby I have ever seen. I want one just like her.
