Well, That's a Huge Noggin.
One of my favorite quotes is from the movie, "So I Married an Axe Murderer" starring Mike Myers.
Stuart Mackenzie: Look at the size of that boy's heed.
Tony Giardino: Shhh!
Stuart Mackenzie: I'm not kidding, it's like an orange on a toothpick.
Tony Giardino: Shhh, you're going to give the boy a complex.
Stuart Mackenzie: Well, that's a huge noggin. That's a virtual planetoid.
Tony Giardino: Shh!
Stuart Mackenzie: Has it's own weather system.
Tony Giardino: Sh, sh, shh.
Stuart Mackenzie: HEAD! MOVE! Head! Paper! Now! Move that melon of yours and get the paper if you can! Haulin' that gargantuan cranium about! I'm not kidding, that boy's head's like Sputnik! Spherical, but quick pointy in parts. He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight on his huge pillow!
Jeff and I joke about the size of Reili's (or any baby's) head in relation to their bodies. We were watching Reili stretch her arms to have them only reach the top of her head. If adults had heads that size with arms that short, we would look very strange, or possibly like a T-Rex or Matthew McConaughey.
