China Girl

International adoption through the eyes of a new father.

Tuesday, June 13, 2006


The top picture is the second day we had Alexandria and the clothes we put her in were way too big, well this past Saturday Faye put her in the same outfit, and as you can see, she has grown right into those clothes, she is just a couple of months behind.

    Todd & Faye,

    What size did Alexandria wear when you first adopted her? I'm trying to guess at the size to buy for our daughter. I have been buying mostly 12 - 18 months, with a few 6 - 12 months.

    mom2elena, when we got Alexandria, she weighed somewhere in the 16 lbs range, and was wearing 6 to 9 months in most thing and they seemed big. We did have a small baby though, now another family had to buy all new clothes because nothing fit their baby, all the clothes were too small. If you know the babies weight bring a range around what you think she should wear. I was amazed at how small Alex was and pretty disappointed at how big some of the clothes we brought for her were. We just didn't have a good weight for her at the time we left, so we were guessing. Even after 2 months we are still about 3 months behind on sizes. When she is 18 months she will probably just be coming out of her 12 month stuff. If that makes sense.
