My Head of Lettuce

I was telling Aaron that at 31 weeks, the baby is usually around 19 inches long and is the size of a head of lettuce. He seemed quite confused and mentioned that he's never seen a head of lettuce that long. He pondered on this for long enough to figure out that it's the size of the baby curled up in the womb.

Gil, mommy promises to never leave you unattended with daddy until you are old enough to call 911 on your own. And I will always do your growth charts...


  1. all fairness, the lettuce analogy confuses me too! Too funny though!

  2. Those analogies crack me up every week!! I liked the one that said she was the length of an English Hothouse Cucumber...what?

  3. I can see why he would be confused. Are we talking romaine? Ice burg? Arugula?
