Taking inspiration from many other new parents, I'll endeavor to take a series of photos of Claire with the same object to show her growth. I can't guarantee any regularity of these, but I'll try!
The object of choice for scale is an elephant made by my crafty mom some time early in my life. She made the elephant for me and a hippopotamus for Betsy out of my dad's worn out Wranglers.
So, to start the series, here is Claire at 11 days old. She is donning her going-home-from-the-hospital outfit, which already fits better and won't fit at all soon.
