First picture we saw of her.
Taken at probably about 11 months, our little peanut was, well… clearly not so little.
And this reality is making packing for her most challenging.
We’ve received two sets of measurements for her, one when her medical report was completed at one year, and another at 17 months. She was big at a year, but at 17 months, she was completely off the charts.
Since then I’ve been hoping and praying for another set of measurements, to help me determine if she really is that big for her age. I mean, we have found the measurements provided by the orphanage to be off, way off, in the past. So I have to wonder.
I have tracked her on a growth chart and if she continued to grow on her ‘curve’ (well above the 100%ile) she should be about 37″ and 39 pounds by now.
Which would make her a size 4T.
I don’t even have any clothes in a size 4T, y’all. Poppy is barely a 2T and Vivienne is between a 2T and a 3T. And she’s 4 and 1/2.
I honestly thought we’d have new measurements by now – and without them, well… I just couldn’t justify shopping for my just-turned-two year old in the 4T section.
So I didn’t.
Now I’m wondering if I’ve made a grave mistake. In about 20 hours I’ll be boarding a plane. Time has officially run out on getting new measurements.
So, I guess I’ll be packing everything I’ve got in size 3T. And a few 2Ts to cover my bases. And a few extra bucks in case none of it fits.
Oh girl. I know my heart is up for you. Just hope my back is up for you, too.
