I get updates from babycenter about how big Tres is. Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now...

I don't know why I still get these. I read them with both Monster and Big Ez, too; I just like getting a little weekly update about what all is going on in there. Despite this enjoyment, I have questions.

Isn't that a big ass heirloom tomato? I mean, last time I had an heirloom tomato salad they were about two inches across, max. Hold your fingers six inches apart. Have you ever had a tomato that size? That's more like a big mango. Or a small cantaloupe.

In this vein, why do they always use food products? Your baby is the size of a sesame seed, a peanut, a plum, an avocado, The Tomato That Ate Atlanta. Why don't they say, Your baby is the size of a hamster or fetus comparable to the biggest matryoshka in a standard set?
