Elizabeth spent most of Thanksgiving asleep in someone's arms. This was one of the rare times that I got to hold my own baby.

I wanted a good picture of Elizabeth in her matching hat and sweater. I tried propping her up on the sofa, but she kept sliding sidewards.

Elizabeth is now 8 weeks old. I've decided to take a picture of her next to Lily's Bitty Baby doll each month to mark her growth. When we brought Elizabeth home from the hospital, she was smaller than the doll, but now she's finally bigger. No more sharing clothes, I guess.
I weighed Elizabeth in a highly non-precise fashion the other night. I stepped on our scale, which is wildly inaccurate because Campbell likes to use it as a trampoline, while holding Elizabeth. Then I weighed myself without her. She's approximately 8 pounds - the little chunk. She's got little rolls on her legs and wrists now and a double chin. She's obviously faring well.

That's a great idea to take her picture next to the doll every week! I was amazed when I first brought Ethan home that he was smaller than my 16-lb cat. He soon outgrew, though. :)

So hypothetically, if one bought miss eliza clothing for Christmas, and that clothing was sized 7-12 pounds, would her mother prefer that it was exchanged for the next size up?
