Oh Baby!

Jack and I took an after-dinner walk tonight and passed a house with a massive new-baby announcement on the front lawn. Full name, birth weight, etc, spelled out with 2-foot high letters. Can't miss it. Anyway, Jack starts to read the words.

Jack: 7... elbows...
me: No, that's "lbs.", a short way to say "pounds". 7 pounds...
Jack: 14 Ozzes...
me: That's another abbreviation for "ounces". It's "oz."
Jack: the baby weighed...7 pounds...Whaaaattt????!!! 7 pounds AND 14 whole ounces??!!! That's just craaaazzyyyyy. No baby was ever THAT big!
