The very first outfit Vivi ever wore, a darling two piece set from Zutano, has been taken out of rotation. Not because it is just too hot here in Indiana for long sleeves and pants, but because she outgrew it. (Insert gentle weeping sounds and an image of me holding the tiny little shirt in my hands wishing it weren’t so.) I keep telling myself “Zutano clothes run small! By three months!” but the truth is when I last put the 0-3 month outfit on my previously tiny little baby, her belly hung out.
Little girl has been hitting the milk bongs and hitting them hard.
When you spend everyday with a little person the changes in them are almost imperceptible. It’s everyone else who has kids that grow up! I had a friend over today who has the most chewable twin girls, the last time I saw them they were stationary and unable to sit up on their own, today the magically found their way to every choking hazard on the the first level of my house. Last month was also Addie’s half birthday (note: birthdays are a HUGE deal to me, even half birthdays) so we made the mark on the wall.
She has grown two and a half inches since this time last year.
Which is huge!
Until you compare it to her sister who has grown two and half inches in six weeks. (Which has to hurt, right? That’s why she wants/needs/demands me to hold her so much? RIGHT?)
Other outfits were packed away as well. Tiny little newborn outfits that fit her like sausage casings after about five weeks.
The days seem long at times, much like that initial climb to the first hill of a rollercoaster. But as soon as you crest that hill? It goes by way too quick. Better hold on. And buy bigger clothes.
