Measuring him against a dollar.





Besides making Jell-o and rice pudding and cupcakes on Sunday, I also tried my hand at a photo shoot with Crew. I'm not the world's greatest photographer, that's for certain, but I have to admit that Crew was very cooperative as a subject and made things a bit easier for me than any of his siblings have done in quite some time.
These photos can be enlarged if you click on them- and I type that mainly for my family and friends who haven't got to see him or hold Crew in 'real life' yet. I wanted to give them a sense of how small he is (he's 7 lbs. 8 oz. today) and that's why he's got a dollar bill at his side in the last picture.
So, although the economy is being shaken up a bit right now, I'm happy to say that Crew seems very comfortable next to the dollar and I really doubt that he's to blame for any economic slump we may be in. Now or ever. =)

Oh my gosh, he's teeny!!! Most of my nieces and nephews were 9 pounds when they were BORN let alone a week later so they filled my arms right away. That little muffin I would snuggle with non-stop!

Measuring against the dollar is so cute! I'm sure we always forget how little they are when they come into the world! CONGRATS, Jody and family! This little guy is in for some serious fun.
