I came to a rather startling revelation while making this strip: Kia’s getting BIG! Having her picture taken directly with me showed me just how big her head actually is, which is quite a bit larger than I’d been depicting it. I’d made her bigger over the past couple months, but damn… what’re we feeding this kid?! Oh, yeah… boob juice; it does the body good!
Of course, she’s up to about sixteen pounds, now, so hauling her around for an hour or two can be killer for the back (though it makes her great for working out my arms – I curl her). And, no, Stacy hasn’t shown me any sympathy at all. Can you believe it? I mean, Kia’s twice the weight she was when she was born! (Okay, so there was a bunch of fluid and stuff back then, but whatever.)
Oh, and for those not getting the marsupial reference… watch this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xKXbOVbAvE&feature=related About a minute in is where he gets to it. Kevin Pollak is hilarious and does one hell of a Christopher Walken impression.
I’m wearing a shirt that you can’t hardly see thanks to Kia and the harness, and Stacy’s showing off her new button-up. Kiandra’s wearing a bright yellow onesy and a skirt that you also can’t see. Trust me, it’s really, really cute on her and that’s all you need to know.
