Double her size!

Miss Samantha Jean has doubled her birthweight! She officially hit 7 pounds 12 ounces on Feb 19th, and she's still hanging out right around there. She is truly an amazing little girl. What an accomplishment - double her size in just over two months. I just can't get over all the great things that this tiny little girl is capable of. She's starting to fill out, too. I'd even venture to say she might be a little chubby! She's wearing newborn size clothes and a few preemie's still. As long as it doesn't have feet - she's pretty long, I think and she just can't stretch out in the feety things. And, we are on our last box of newborn size diapers. I think they are getting a little snug around the belly. So, on to size 1's I think. Which, is actually really funny. Before she was born Pete and I started stocking up on diapers. We bought 3-4 of the big size 1 packages and then started buying size 2's. We figured she wouldn't be in the size 1's very long. Taylor actually started off in the size 1-2's! Boy, were we wrong!

The first photo is of Sami in her carseat the day we brought her home from the hospital. The second is a few days ago. I can't believe how much bigger she looks! I've had to move the straps up one level and also the head pillow. Of course, while she looks gigantic to all of her family we still get lots of comments and questions when we are out. "Oh my goodness she's soooo tiny!" I just smile and say "Well, she's big for her!"

The boys have taken to calling her Dolly - they think she's their real live baby doll. I think it's cute!

Wow, that's quite a difference! She's getting so big. Hard to believe she's only been around 2 months!
