When Jennifer Gallagher and Adam Fass looked into the dimpled face of their generously sized firstborn, they knew it was worth skipping out on ski season at their retreat in the Poconos. And now that he’s out of the womb, the hefty fella likes to stay out. “He loves being in his stroller,” said Mr. Fass, 41, a replenishment analyst (whatever that means) for Saks Fifth Avenue. “He loves getting held by anyone—it doesn’t matter whose arms he’s in. I think he’s going to be a pretty outgoing kid.” And a rhythmic one—one who already enjoys dancing to classic rock around the family’s Upper East Side one-bedroom while in the arms of his mother, Ms. Gallagher, 29, an administrative manager at the 311 government-information call center. The couple has been married two years.
