Dot says: babies are supposed, as a rough guideline, to double their weight by six months. Frank has almost managed it at eight weeks: 13lb 8.5oz / 6.125kg today (adjusted to allow for nappy etc). I remember worrying a bit when Hugh had the same massive weight gain and being reassured that he would slim down when he was a toddler. Well, he isn’t a sofa-bound blob exactly, but he packs a fair punch when running at one’s knees from behind. Anybody involved in midget rugby, you know who to call.
