My, my, look how tall and active you've grown baby Ollie
ROCKHAMPTON'S favourite big baby Oliver "Ollie" Stock has grown in size, and in personality.
Ollie, who turned one yesterday, caused a national media whirlwind when he was born at Rockhampton's Mater Hospital weighing 6.7kg, or 14 pounds 14ounces. The average Aussie baby weighs three to four kilos.
One year on, mum Patricia said he was a very happy and active toddler.
"He's started to walk in the last three weeks, but he's only really got the confidence with it in the last week," she said.
"We were supposed to have his party on the weekend but because of the weather we held off and we're going to have it on Sunday instead."
Now weighing 13.3kg, Patricia said he only weighed three kilos less than his three-and-a-half-year-old brother Luke.
"The doctor said he's the size of a one-and-a-half- year-old now, so he's still abit big for his age," she said.
"He's started day care once a week now with his brother and he loves it. He plays with all of the kids. He can say 'nana', 'mama' and 'daddy', and he's learning more words at the moment."
At two months old Ollie weighed 8.23kg and was 65cm long
Four months: 9.36kg, 68cm
Six months: 10.36kg, 74cm
