For those of you who don't know, Jenner was born on August 10, 2007 and only weighed 5.8 lbs. She was 3 weeks early and so tiny. She was 17 inches long and when we brought her home 2 days later, she had dropped to 4.12 lbs. TINY!!! The picture above is Jenner, 4 days and Mason (nephew) 10 months. What a huge difference. The other picture is Jenner next to Taylor's bitty baby, which is about 18 inches. She was so little that even her preemie clothes were too big. My mom and I had to go to Babies R Us in Riverdale just to find her some clother that she could wear. Wal-mart carries preemie clothes but not enough, because every time we went, they were out of them. She remained tiny for weeks and weeks, I don't think she wore newborn clothes until she was about 6-7 weeks old. And newborn clothes are for 5-8 lbs. I just took her to the doctor for her 9 month check and she weighs 15.13 lbs and is 26 inches long. I guess she will be our little petite girl forever. The funny thing about her is that she is little but isn't lacking in the "smartness" area. She is so smart and so alert all of the time. She has turned into a little comedian and loves to make other people laugh at her. She will often give her dad and I a courtesy laugh when are trying to make her giggle, maddening. She also fake coughs and fake laughs for attention. Her vocabulary includes, "da da", "ba ba", and her newest is "oo oo." She is adorable and is the highlight of our lives. We all can't get enough of her (except at 3:00 in the morning.) We love you Baby Girl!!!
