Without the correct use of a banana, I simply cannot determine his real size.
With our 24-weeker we used a Hershey bar. All we had on hand.
I adore this story.
This won't be a full update since I just gave one yesterday, but we took this picture last weekend. We gave our niece one of his diapers and she was trying to determine how big he was. She put it on a soda can for scale and we took this picture so she could see just how small he is.
It genuinely makes me happy every time I read a positive update from you. Please keep them coming.
My daughter full bodily fit in my hand when she was born. She's now 10 and has crafted sarcasm into an art form.
Cant wait for the update of you bringing him home nice and healthy 💪🏻
That's about how tiny I was (1lb 12oz)! Best of luuuuuuuck!!
I tried to do the banana for scale thing when my son was in the NICU, but I got scolded by a nurse for bringing food onto the unit and trying to put a non-sanitized item in the crib.
Ha! That's actually the nurse that's holding it, and she went and found the can for us too. She did sanitize it for about a minute before putting it in there though.
Bananas come in all shapes and sizes.
Sorry I’m not use to this unit of measurement. How many bananas to a ispep?
You're not going to be believe me, but a soda can is exactly 69% the length of an average banana.
Yknow I didn’t actually correctly understand his size without the can for scale! He’s doing well, that’s actually a substantial size he is now
Well there's your problem right there. He'd grow much more quickly on regular Pepsi, not Diet.
My nephew was that little when he was born. My momma nicknamed him "Cool-Whip" because he was so tiny you could have given him a bath in a Cool-Whip tub.
IMO, it doesn't really look like they need 'diet' at this point...
💓💓💓💓 hope all goes well
Yet another place without coke...
"How tall is your baby?" "Only 2 Pepsi cans"
The “funny” part is I’m scrolling, and I see a picture with a Pepsi can and wires and lights, and my eyes didn’t register the shadow immediately, and I thought it was a soda-powered science experiment!
Wow he looks like a handful! Haha get it? Congrats brother
sending love from ohio! may you have all the joy in the world. congrats for your new addition
I’ll shoot some prayers up for you and your family tonight. Congratulations
Oh hey, maybe something you'd be interested in eventually (a good Christmas gift idea) but we got a scale poster of our daughter from
I was wishing for scale photo with the update yesterday! He’s getting so big! Thanks!
Oh my goodness I love him so much 😭good job, lil buddy!! And good job mom and dad!!!!
I am rooting for you and your little one.

My husband and I have been following your story and get so excited for your weekly updates. You’ve got one adorable, strong little guy. I saw this article today and thought of you. He’s already come so far and I’m sure you’ll have even more incredible before and after photos in the future!
