Hello Marge. Boy he sure is a dandy. Its a good thing you ain't got a number 14 skillet on him.  ::) ;D

How much did he weigh and how long was he? He looks like a pretty good size baby. I'm saying 8 pounds and seven ounces.

Marge can you tell the mother that I got a set of Griswold Oval Roasters, fully lettered, WITH ALL THE CORRECT TRIVETS, that I'd trade for that boy?

I used to work at a meat market and folks would bring their babys in and we would weigh them on our scales.

Perry, the boy weighed 8 lbs. 11 oz.    so you were pretty darn close. 

  I didn't get Kaedin's set started until he was maybe 7 years old.   so, boy oh boy, baby Gavin is starting early,  and gonna maybe catch up within a year.  ;D

I missed his weight four ounces. That ain't bad from looking at a picture.  ;D

Yes Marge you are getting this boy started out early. By the time he is walking you'll probably have him a whole set of skillets.  :)

Boy, Marge, you add new meaning to keeping it all in the family.  No wonder there are few good quality toy skillets out there :o
