When Samantha and I got home from the tea party photo shoot on Friday evening, she asked Steve to take her measurements again. He started documenting them just a few months ago, with the most recent one taken in late May. We were both completely shocked to see that she'd grown an inch in that short time! I have to think that there must have been a mistake. I don't know. But every time I look at my little girl, I see how long her legs are, how her little Buddha-belly has suddenly begun to slim out, I see the first shadowy images of the leggy teenager she's sure to become.
Forgive the image quality...
I always had to laugh when people not in the Ds community would see us and say, "Oh, I'm sure she's going to be really tall, like her mommy!" Depending on who they were, I'd occasionally correct them with a quick science lesson in genetics, but usually I'd just say, "Hmmm...maybe."
Eh, who knows?
