Update Bonus! I told her to use a banana for scale...

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.

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.

My daughter full bodily fit in my hand when she was born. She's now 10 and has crafted sarcasm into an art form.

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...

"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!
