monkey arms

One comment we're constantly hearing about Claire is how long her arms and fingers are. And truly they are a little out of proportion because her clothing fits everywhere but the sleeves are a tad short. Just a tad but it's enough to warrant a comment or two. And usually I'll retort, "yeah, we hope she grows into them one day."




I'm sure they'd make a comment about her feet too if they weren't all bundled up. But we don't mind. She is so perfect to us and her lengthened extremities just make her who she is. Plus it's fun to watch how she moves them and folds them. No trouble reaching things; that's for sure!

I agree, she is beautiful. Maybe she'll be a concert pianist with those long fingers! I have munchkin fingers, so I am envious!

She looks just perfect! Our newest was born with a huge nose and hands, but at 8 months, he's totally grown into them. Well, as much as we can tell;). Love her one month dress! She is just so adorable. Makes me want another baby girl!

So Pretty!

Megan said...

Take it from this 5'11" girl, there's nothing wrong with long limbs and fingers. I can always reach what I need (even when my hubby can't), and I had an easier time playing the piano and sax. She'll be glad she has those pretty parts. :)

Kirsty Wiseman said...

The last picture? Her eyes tell me she is wise and that she has been on this earth before. I swear she has. So knowing for a new born.
