TWO NEWBORN BABIES


Two 'newborn' babies
Originally uploaded by PhylB
Today I took Amaia to visit her new playmate 'Lana'. Lana was born exactly six weeks to the day after Amaia. Because Lana weighed only 60% of Amaia's weight at birth, and because Amaia has had six weeks to gorge herself on breast milk seeing them together was quite comical. Technically they are both newborn babies but with Lana still too little to fit in the 0-3 month clothes and Amaia already into the 3-6 month size despite her tender age, I don't think many people would consider Amaia a newborn beside Lana! Amaia looks like she could eat her for dinner.
Funnily enough after I left Lana to drive home, I bumped into a friend who hadn't seen Amaia yet. Her own kids are grown up so she took one look at Amaia and announced Awwwh - she's soooo tiny!
It's all relative, I guess!

I remember the day I gave birth to Ellen. While I was nursing her I thought: She's so small and frigile. And then I remembered where she'd came through a few hours before - and suddenly she was HUGE!
