Heaviest bub shaping up to be one of the tallest too

AS Patricia Stock holds baby Oliver in her arms, she can't help but wonder what the future will bring.

"I hope he's not the tallest man in Australia," she laughed as she spoke with The Morning Bulletin on Thursday.

The Rockhampton bub made headlines across Australia when he came into the world at the Rockhamp ton Mater Hospital on February 9, weighing a whopping 6.76kg (14.4lb).

On Sunday, Ollie - as he is affectionately known - was christened in front of close family and friends at St Mary's Church in Rockhampton.

Patricia said Ollie had lost a bit of the weight but was still above-average size for his age.

"He's grown a lot in length," she said.

"He's only one size smaller than my toddler, who is nearly three. I reckon he'll be very, very tall."

Celebrating his four-month birthday last week, Patricia said Ollie's personality was starting to shine through.

"He's smiling a lot more and giggling," she said.

Patricia said she couldn't wait to share his fame with him when he was a bit older.

"I can't wait to show him everything," she said. "His 21st and 18th will be easy."
