What a Difference a Year Makes, Part Two

You can see Part One here. It includes the photos of my baby in her Gymboree dress.

When Grace was ten months old, I bought her two dresses from the clearance rack at Gymboree. They were both size 18 months. This was one of them. It came with tights that had the same flowers and a little bumble bee flying up the leg.

At eleven months, Grace was 30.5 inches tall and weighed 26.5 pounds. She wore a size 4.5 shoe.

On May 5, 2008, just a couple weeks before her first birthday, Grace attended her cousin's first communion. The dress fit very nicely, but it was much too long. It nearly skimmed the floor when she walked, but she had been walking for so long that it didn't bother her. She got around just fine, and she was adorable in the dark blue dress.

Fast forward to March 5, 2009. Grace was 35 inches tall and weighed 32 pounds. She wore (and still wears) a size 8 shoe.

She can still fit into some of her little girl clothes, like this dress. The sleeves are too short and the dress is now a more like a shirt. She wears it with pants underneath instead of stockings. It's still just as cute, maybe even more so.

My little girl is growing up, but they all do.

As fast as Grace has grown, she hasn't gained much weight in the past eight months. She's mostly just gotten taller and thinned out, which has allowed us to preserve a lot of her wardrobe – including this dress.

She's growing fast, but at least I have something to hold on to.

Don't forget to stop back on Thursday for Grace's Kitchen!

  1. Nice to know that they can keep wearing items a year later. My one year old daughter is on the skinny side, so she can still wear 3-6 month onesies.

  3. This is so beautiful. It’s true, they grow up so fast that you need to start thinking about letting them grow up as soon as they’re born.
