The Clothes She Came In...

I know I say all the time how much little M has grown and changed. But sometimes, until I look back I don't think I realize how much...

Twenty-nine months ago little M came to us a scared, tiny, sickly little two and a half year old, who was more like a baby. She toddled around like she had only just learned to walk, and was so small and needy.

She came to us wearing a little dress (size 18mo) that hung loosely on her...


A little leopard print dress she was adorable in. It hung down to her knees...



And I was curious...what would that little dress look like on our girl now? So I (literally) squeezed her back into it...



As you can see, it no longer hangs to her knees (there are buttons in the back, only three out of six would close!)...



It barely hangs to her waist!

Our girl has grown in so many ways. Not just in size...



I am so proud of the confident, loving, secure little girl she is becoming.

How big? So big!

Little M had such a gorgeous outfit.

That is one of my favourite things to do on Gotcha day. I squeeze them back onto their outfits. Well Ican't with Lily os she has to hold hers next to her but Rosie still fits....sort of.

Darling!!! Love the comparison pictures. We still have Josie's special outfit too. It's a quilted Chinese New Year outfit. It's teeny tiny and it makes me smile.
