This has always been very evident in their feet. From the very beginning, all three of them have moved through shoes with lightening speed. For Spencer's first Easter, I bought him the cutest shoes three weeks before he needed them, and when I went to put them on Easter morning, I couldn't get his foot anywhere near them. Shoes literally last them about two months and then we need new ones. Such is life when your husband wears a size 14!
Aren't they adorable? You might notice that they are in mint condition because when I got them for Hannah, her feet grew right past them and she never had a chance to wear them. It's like she went from a 6 to a 9 in one fell swoop and completely missed out on these babies. They are a size 7 so I thought they'd be perfect for Squish.
I couldn't get her feet into them at all, but I still tried for twenty minutes because 1) they are adorable and 2) I already have to buy four pairs of shoes for the other two!
Curse the giants!
Maybe Brad was secretly injecting me with that super growth hormone they give cows while I was pregnant. That would explain so many things.
While this freaky growth thing has primarily been related to their feet, it now affects their clothes. Spencer is wearing a SIZE 12 in pants for back to school. Yeah, he's 7 people. And he needs the super skinny ones that cinch all the way up because while he's off the charts for height, he's only in the 15th percentile for weight. Poor little emaciated 2nd grader.
Onto Hannah, who is definitely, shall I say, the fullest of my children. She is in no way fat, but she carries more weight than the other two and actually appears healthy. I went to get her new clothes for ballet yesterday and bought this:
It's an 8/10 so I'm thinking of course that will fit my four-year-old. Wrong again. Okay, so it does fit her, but it just fits her. There isn't even one little wrinkle of fabric as it stretches across her massive pre-k body. So back I'll go today to buy a 10/12 for my child who isn't even in school yet. Cause that's totally normal.
