But everyone else that sees her can't help but remark how minute and doll-like she is. It occurs (and was suggested) to me that, as she grows up, I will surely forget just how tiny she originally was. So I've tried to take some photos that will remind me, and surprise her, about just how small she really was at a few weeks old. Unless the economy goes really bad in the next few years, she will know what a US quarter looks like and be able to compare her body parts to one in the future.

Check out those claws!
It was exceedingly difficult to get her to open her hand with the coin on her palm, so strong is the primate branch-grabbing instinct.
