When Ava was born, my dad won a "new baby basket" at a silent auction. In that baby basket was this doll.
We couldn't believe that Ava was barely bigger than the doll so, of course, we took a picture to remember how little she was. Every month until she turned one year old, I took a picture of Ava laying next to the doll (it became much harder to do this as she neared her first birthday, but we did it!). It was fun to line up the pictures in her baby book and see how much she grew over the year. When Sidney was born we took her picture next to the doll each month and now we're doing the same with Clara.
Here are the pictures of my girls as newborns compared to the doll:
Newborn Ava - 6 lbs 12 oz & 19.75 inches
Newborn Sidney - 6 lbs 1 oz & 18 inches
Newborn Clara - 6 lbs 12 oz & 20 inches
One thing that is crazy to me is how alike my girls look as newborns. Do all newborn babies look the same???
