When your child has been diagnosed with Failure to Thrive, noticing that she is outgrowing her clothes brings a sigh of relief, a sense of triumph, and maybe even a smug "I told you so" -- directed at her pushy doctors, of course.
After wearing teeny tiny size 18 Month pants for over a year, she blew through size 24 Months and now her 2T pairs are even too short. Thank goodness for elastic waistbands. She has slowly begun to fill out her tops, outgrowing many of her 2T sized ones as well. I can't believe I'm buying size 3T for my little girl. Sure, they might be a little long, but she'll grow into them.
|24 Months sweatshirt? Way too short!|
|Here we go 3T!|
She's hit 35 inches and is approaching 26 lbs. To think that this time last year she weight about the same as Aurelia does now is mind boggling. We have come such a long way.
Her Failure to Thrive diagnosis and the subsequent testing and constant shoving food at her was one of the hardest things I've had to manage, and I know she was so frustrated, too :(
I hope and pray that her growth continues.
