Quarter Included For Scale (cropped)Now that I’ve grown accustomed to her, my infant daughter no longer looks very small to me. But everyone else that sees her can’t help but remark how minute and doll-like she is. It occurs (and was suggested) to me that, as she grows up, I will surely forget just how tiny she originally was. So I’ve tried to take some photos that will remind me, and surprise her, about just how small she really was at a few weeks old. Unless the economy goes really bad in the next few years, she will know what a US quarter looks like and be able to compare her body parts to one in the future.

    May her grip on her money always be so tight.

  • She IS as small as she looks in her previous photos!

    Amazing.

    I wish I could heal so quickly.

  • All I can see here is lolcat (or similar) fodder. (The fourth one down in particular cries out for “you’re doing it wrong” treatment.)
