Samantha the Giant

A good friend recently had a baby girl.

Who weighed 5.12

Since that was Sam's birth weight,

and I don't remember much her first 3 months of life,

I had to compare.

I walked in with my tiny 1-year-old

and suddenly was holding a giant.

I had that happen to me the other day too! I could't believe that my 14 mo old had been so teeny tiny!

I'm stopping by from SITS-happy SITS day! I hope it's amazing!

I'm a new follower, you had me at "hard-core Catholic!" I am too!

awwww, this was, well is, the exact age spread of my two precious sons. Accept they are not dinky, cute lil punkins in diapers anymore, they are humongous football players, ages 18 and 20.

I'm blown away by tiny newborns, too - even though my daughter weighed less than 4 lbs when she was born and less than 5 lbs when we took her home!

It's like the first time I visited my parents after getting our kitten. All of a sudden, their normal-sized cats looked HUGE! All I could do was look at them and laugh hysterically!!

I try not to laugh hysterically at newborns, though. New moms tend to frown on that. :)

Happy SITS Day!

Isn't it funny how big they seem after holding a new baby? Of course, compared to my newborns, your friends baby is so tiny!

Our sweet Kit was 3 months, 3 days when Nugget was born. My MIL brought her to the hospital to see me and her new little bro. He weighed 6 lbs 1 oz. She looked like a giant next to him!!!! It made for wonderful pics!

Now, almost a year later, he is taller than her and weighs more!

It is amazing how fast they grow, isn't it? And how quickly we don't remember!
