Does this body make my head look big?

Ok, this is my first boy dobie. I know he isn't show quality, and I know he is suppose to be bigger than the girls. I also know that bigger isn't better, and trust me we are ready for the growing to stop already. I actually think he is about average to a little large. But wow he has a big head, I mean do they grow into their heads? I know they grow into their feet, into their ears, and even into their nubs, but is it just me or does Huckleberry have a big as$ head?

The pictures aren't great, ohh he is 8 months old, about 85 pounds, and (if I measured right), stands at 28". But from the tip of his nose to back of his head is 11 1/4 inches.

This one just shows how he won't accept that he can't fit in the recliner anymore..

Yep, he looks perfectly normal to me ...right down to cramming himself into that recliner.

You really should stop cheaping out, break down and buy him a bigger recliner so he will be more comfortable!!! Shame on you!

It's just an optical illusion. His head is fine, it's that barbie doll recliner you've got him in.

He looks fine to me, but I'm no expert. Relax and enjoy him. I think at 8 months and 85 lbs. he's pretty big. Oliver weighed 75 lbs. at 9 months.

I think his head looks fine as well, and remember, he still has filling out to do, so if you are concerned keep in mind that his shoulders/chest/everything will broaden.
