Our Robbie is now 1 and 12. That's 805gm for those of you in a metric world. 1 pound, 12 oz. When speaking to someone else, especially in the world where you're always referring to these weights, we tend to drop the pound/ounce labels. It's x and y, not pounds and y ounces. Convenient.

Is that how people developed text-speak? Because they just found that labels so darn convenient? And am I now feeding into the same mindset that makes my teeth clench up every time I'm confronted with a license plate saying I luv u2? Maybe I should administer a self-punishment right now and go read my grammar references. Eesh.
