My friend Addie made these adorable booties for Anna Claire--what a treasure!

It's been hard to find clothes that actually fit Anna Claire, so when we saw this onsie at Wal-Mart in the preemie size, we had to get it!

Never mind that the pacifier makes her head look small!

She weighed in at a whopping 5 lbs. 6 oz. on Tuesday--that's 7 oz. in 7 days! And she grew 1/4 of an inch too!

I can't imagine a baby that small! My first one weighed 8'3oz.

Anna Claire is so beautiful and tell her that she looks just perfect!

Sarah, those are great stats! And I'd offer to drop off all of Seth's preemie clothes, but they're all winter stuff in blue! ;)

Walmart has the best preemie clothes! Yeah Anna Claire - gettin big so fast! When Nathan was just coming home he was about 5 pounds 9 ounces and we had a tough time finding diapers the right size. We ended up using huggies/pampers preemies for ever and ever. In the beginning even those were too small for his little legs and the pee would just run out every where, so my friend taught us this trick... put one diaper on the right way and another on backwards over top of the other. It worked great and sometimes we could even reuse the outer diaper!

Just darling. While I would never wish a premie for anyone, mine just seemed to chunk up and get big waaaay too fast. I always wished they would have stayed small longer. Enjoy it as she is just a peanut. Those booties are a hoot!!

She is beautiful!! My youngest weighed less than 6 pounds when we left the hospital, thank goodness a friend found some preemie clothes at our BX. Everything else swallowed him.
