Can we just talk a little bit more about how much little M has changed in the eighteen months she’s been home?
I was going through some of little M’s old clothes yesterday (yes, there were a lot, I may have a problem), and I was noticing what a wide variety of sizes we have.
When little M came home, she wore size 12 month clothes, then in a matter of a couple months, went to size 18 months. This was not a big deal, because we had bought mostly 18-24 month sizes based on her measurements, so we had plenty of things for her to wear (obviously).
But a couple months after her surgery she was almost completely in a size 24 month, or 2T. I went shopping, because I thought we had settled into this size, and we would be here a while. We thought little M was just going to be petite. Then, a few months later, she was in a size 3T, and 2T wasn’t fitting our girl at all. Her limbs had gotten inches longer.
Now? Well, I am buying up 4T. And I’m worried that I’ll be trading that out for 5T soon. Should I just start buying 5T, and let her wear her clothes big, so she can wear them longer?
Four sizes, you guys. She has grown four sizes in eighteen months. I love that she’s growing and healthy, don’t get me wrong…but it has the potential for havoc on the budget!
