Fat Jack

I was recently telling some of my friends about how fat Jack was as a baby. They have known him only a short time and were surprised because he is so wiry now. So to prove my point and for a walk down memory lane for the rest of us, here is Jack at about 2 months.

Check out those cheeks!

And another, this one at just one month old. Don't forget, this kid was born at just 6 lbs 13 oz. A month later and check out those jowls!!!

We stopped calling him Fat Jack after Elder Holland gave his talk saying never to call your child fat even in whimsy. And then we felt guilty. But not too guilty because he was fat, but not too fat for a baby and he most certainly is not fat now.

Oh how I loved to kiss those chubby cheeks!


  1. Love the cheeks- Luke had them too!

  2. Oh my gosh. You aren't kidding! My dad used to call Sarah "Stick" and Rachel "Brick" when they were really little. HILARIOUS. Rachel still cracks up about it to this day.

  3. Oh he is so CUTE! He reminds me of my chunky Parker and Colby! There is nothing better.

    P.S. I also LOVE to read the "reality" sections of your posts. I think I will add that to my postings as well. I hope you don't mind me copying you. We just want to be just like you guys :)

  4. Never heard that talk, and I'm glad because I delight in Callum's (not-so-much-there-anymore) chub and still call him "fattest."

  5. Oh Fat Jack! He is so dang cute. You'd never know he was a chunky baby by looking at him now!

  6. We call my Jack "Fat Jack", too... and now I've found the Elder Holland talk & feel rebuked, as well. Dang it! LOL
