Babies are only little for such a short time. So one mum decided to create her very own visual reminder of just how teeny her daughter was with a unique photo series called Wee Baby Vs. ___. And, while the idea behind the series is insanely simple, it may just be the most brilliant inspiration we’ve seen in a long time.
Instagram never fails to disappoint when it comes to hilarious parenting photos and Here we go a Jen does it again! When Jen gave birth to baby Alexandra, she knew her third child would probably be her last baby. Her daughter, born at 37 weeks, weighed only 2.46 kilograms and Jen decided to document just how teeny this precious bundle was.
So Jen did what all mums do – she started snapping photos of her newborn. However, rather than just the typical newborn shots, Jen started adding random items from around the house to compare with her little one.
Sharing her photos on Instagram with the hashtag, #WeeBabyVs, Jen found a cute and clever way to track her daughter’s growth and to cherish her fleeting itty bitty size forever.

One of the things we love about these photos is that Jen’s two older children are clearly getting involved as well. Some of the images on her Instagram account show the older two helping Mum set up the props. Jen explains that her older daughter, Elizabeth thinks that taking photos of Alexandra is the “most fun game with baby sister”.
