Growth spurt
mrswhitecastle posted:
Elizabeth must have just finished a huge growth spurt. I had her feet measured at the same store, and they grew 1/2 a size in one week. I've had to buy a whole new wardrobe for her, too. She skipped an entire clothing size. She has gone straight from a size 6x to size 8. Last Summer, she was wearing size 5 dresses. I took her shopping last week, and had to buy her size 10/12. Yikes!

Having 2 girls, about 2 years apart, I really expected to get to take advantage of hand-me-downs. Well, Elizabeth is in a larger size than Emily. So far, it doesn't seem to bother her that she is bigger than her older sister. Hopefully it will stay that way.

Wow that is crazy. Levi seems to grow at a steady pace. Knock on wood that it stays that way. He just had his 7 year physical. He is 57 lbs and 50 inches. This puts him in the 76% for weight and 81% for height. He is dense as he is all muscle, not an ounce of fat on his skinny hard body. Thank goodness for adjustable waist bands.
