And just a few more...

I have thought of a few more similarities and differences between Abby and Aaron and I wanted to record those then I should be done for a while.

Abby rides much better in the car than Aaron did. This is certainly due to all the praying I did about it while she was in the womb.

They were both big babies. Abby was four days early and weighed in at over 8 pounds. Aaron came along 2 weeks later at 9 1/2 pounds. But they were both also 99th percentile for length. So even with the extra weight they both seemed like all scrawny legs at this point to me. Abby has a much smaller head than Aaron, though. :) When she was born she seemed so much smaller to me than Aaron did when he was born. I thought she looked JUST like her brother only smaller.

They must be proportioned differently. Aaron never wore newborn clothes. When he was two weeks old I tried to put him in a newborn outfit and it was like a wetsuit. Abby is still wearing newborn clothes even though she is above both the weight and height listed on the newborn tags. According to the tags, she should fit into three month clothes, but they are too big for her. She has a lot of really cute three month clothes so I am anxious for her to be able to wear them.

This outfit is my favorite newborn outfit she has. Her Aunt Mindy and Uncle Doug got it for her. The blanket is from her Kimmie. It is a very nice blanket.

No wonder something about the outfit looked familiar. It's like clothes hanging in Abby's cousins closet. I should have recognized Mindy's touch.
Adorable pics. Thank you for taking the time to post all these.
