Been Waiting to Do This for a Long Time!

Hair Bows and Hats! The weather here is GZ has been so hot and humid all week until yesterday. Yesterday (Saturday, Feb. 28th) we got Lexi dressed for the day in an outfit we bought at a Chinese store here on Shaiman Island. Everything we brought for Lexi to wear does not fit. We have ONE outfit (PJ's) that fits pretty good. So we have been looking for things that do fit and making do with what we have. Well, we dressed her in a spring/summer outfit and then headed downstairs to learn that a cold front had come through and it was cool outside. We were headed to tour a Buddhist Temple so we took her back in and changed her. I got to pull out the hat that I ordered from Gymboree that I just HAD to have for her. Talk about cute!









Then today we woke up to even cooler weather so we not only needed a sweater but a blanket over the sweater. I pulled out a 6 months Carters velour outfit and put on her. Like everything else it was too big but we made do by rolling sleeves and pants up. I finished off her cute little outfit with one of the cute bows I brought with us. Adorable!



Frog Face Lexi!


Fun in the Playroom!


And finally this pictures shows what we are talking about when we say she is little...


In 6 months pants, we have a really hard time getting them to fit her hips. It's hard to believe that a 13 month old baby could be wearing 3 months clothing but she is. I'm not worried as anyone can see she is doing well. She is healthy, developmentally on track and I'm sure she will grow quickly once we are home but she will always be petite.

She seems to be adjusting to her new Mom and Dad rather quickly. Everyone seems so happy. Enjoy the sites and safe travel home.
Love Leighann

So cute!! Donna brought diaper pins with her to China because a friend told her she needed them to hold up the babies pants. It was true. All pants to big in the waist but some not long enough. If you can find them they work very well.
Lexie is so cute and looks like she is now doing well. Happy to follow your journey, thanks for sharing. Linda

Wanda I bought that same outfit for her in a 3mths size! Just goes to show great minds think alike. (could also be the sister thing!) Don't worry me and Mom have her covered on the 3mths size. Love you. Carolyn

Oh my goodness but she is tiny! What a sweetie pie that little girl of yours is! Good to know her rash is getting better. =)

our daughter wore 3-6 month clothing until she was 18 months old! She's completely healthy and fine, just small!
Your daughter is precious!
