PA dad measures his son’s growth with Philly Cheesesteak

A father in Philadelphia came up with a unique way to measure how much his son grows and he does it with one of the city’s beloved treasures: a cheesesteak. When Brad Williams was a brand-new dad, he and his wife ordered takeout and he noticed that his cheesesteak sandwich was about the same size as his two-week-old son, Lucas.

So Williams snapped a photo of the infant and the cheesesteak, posted it to Facebook, and his friends and family loved it. He then ordered the Philadelphia delicacy once a month to document how big baby Lucas was compared to the cheesesteak. He calls his system “Cheesesteak for Scale” and he kept it up for the first year of his son’s life, sharing the pics on his Facebook page and his blog, Strange Work.

When the little tyke finally reached his first birthday milestone, the proud papa happily gave his son his first taste of a cheesesteak and Williams says, “he actually seemed to enjoy it.” Now that Lucas is older, he’s not such a fan of his dad’s photo series, so dad isn’t doing monthly photos anymore, but he does still plan to continue the tradition yearly.

“Going forward we plan to take a Cheesesteak for Scale picture once a year on his birthday,” Williams says. “Should be fun to see how much he likes it when he’s a teenager!”

Here’s a couple of the pictures, but see the rest at StrangeWork.com.
