Like father like son

When I was in 7th grade I wanted to wrestle on the school team like my dad did. I was so excited until the day I showed up and they split us up according to our weight. I headed over to the smallest weight class, 78 lbs, and found out that I was still 12 lbs too light!

Undaunted I tried my hand at wrestling anyways and soon found that I was really bad. I was getting beat by Bill Nye the Science Guy's nephew. So bad, in fact, that the only kid I could pin was a down syndrome wrestler.

I come by it honestly, my Dad was a skinny guy too. Check him out!
So I guess it's no surprise that Atticus still weighs less than 14 lbs even though he just hit 6 months! That puts him in the under 3.5 weight percentile!!!

Better start eating a few extra PB&J's if you wanna make the wrestling team kiddo!


  1. That's nuts! I didn't realize he was so small. The pictures accentuate his chunky legs. He's just a tiny little man. You need some Rothe in him. I don't think Presley has done anything but skim the very top of the growth chart from day one.

  2. He is so cute! Wyatt is the same way- seems to be falling off the growth charts but still healthy and happy!
