Smaller, smaller, and smaller

Remember my little girl? That cute little kid I gave birth to 3 years ago?
Do you remember how she wore size 12 month clothing until she was 2 yrs old?
Well, I was actually surprised when by her third birthday, she fit into size 3T, since she's always worn sizes smaller than her actual age.
Well, then this summer, a small growth spurt happened. (which is big for my girly who is also very, very, very short) During this growth spurt, Miss Petey must not have gained any weight because well, over the weekend, this kept happening... See the inches of underwear showing? We were in Tucson and I packed 4 pairs of pants/skirts. First, the skirt kept falling down so I tried some shorts. Same thing happened but we decided to keep them on her. After she had an accident in those, we tried the other 2 pairs of shorts and they were both falling completely I resorted to her little brother's size 18 month shorts...the khaki's in the above picture. As you can see, those were too big around the waist too!

Not sure what I am going to do but for today, we have just resorted to wearing size 18 month leggings with her awesome new ASU tshirt (a post about that coming soon). And seriously, could that face have any more sass? Maybe I take too many pictures because she has SO many faces and poses that she gives me when I break the camera out nowadays. Not sure if I should laugh or be worried.

The funniest thing about my girly not gaining any weight is that she seriously asks to eat all. day. long. She usually eats breakfast around 7:30am and by 8am, she asks for her first snack. This goes on the entire day, many times it's 10 minutes after eating the last snack. How can I have a child that is eating me out of house and home but dropping clothes sizes? I am so confused.

I guess she just has her daddy's genetics.

And that's how Suze sees it.

Sounds like she is definitely related to her daddy. He used to eat like that too. :) At least you don't have to worry about buying new clothes all the time. :D

My kids would always get skinner after having a growth spurt. Then they would get a bit chubbier then skinny and tall again.
