Twitter user Brad Williams is getting a lot of notoriety for measuring his son in Philly cheesesteaks every month for the first year of his life.  It's not only cute, but also ensured that he got a Philly cheesesteak once a month for a year. Sounds like a win-win. Image: strangework.comThe pictures turned out adorably. Image: strangework.comI wouldn't advise doing the same with your favorite food, however, especially if your favorite food is ribs like me.

All photos can be found on his blog and they are cute. In the meanwhile, Williams says he hopes he hasn't, "scarred the kid for life." Us too, Brad.
