Introducing RoundBoy

Posted by on 6 February 2008

Since I already mentioned RoundBoy in a previous post, I believe formal introductions are in order.

Everyone, meet my 6-year old son, RoundBoy:


He was a whopping 4.05 kg (9.92 lbs) when he was born and had been round and chubby as a baby, so I’ve always called him RoundBoy. He has retained some of his roundness (especially on his cheeks) through the years, so everyone fondly calls him RoundBoy until now.

This photo was taken in June 2005. He’s no longer as chubby as he was back then but his cheeks are still as round.

I’ve always loved this photo because, to me, it shows his sweet, affectionate and loving nature, perhaps more appropriately expressed as malambing in Tagalog (Filipino), manja in Malay, cariñoso in Spanish.

His trademark show of affection for me: 3 kisses — one on the right cheek, one on the left cheek and one on the forehead, in that order.

I love my RoundBoy :)

P.S. I also have a 9-year old son, an 8-year old daughter and 2-year old twin boys. But since this post is about RoundBoy, I’ll formally introduce them to you in later posts.
