They really do grow overnight | WW


People tell you when you have a kid at home and another on the way, that as soon as that new baby is here, that older child will seem HUGE overnight.

Well, they are right!

These two girls are more than huge. They are like giants.

I can’t believe how much they have grown.

And, by my estimates, they won’t be stopping any time soon!

(They went upstairs after school one day this week. They came down ready for tap and ballet. Neither of them is taking a dance class right now. But they sure are ready!)

  7. So adorable! And so true – I can vividly remember this phenomenon with MM and crying about how my “baby” was all grown up and I’d missed it. And he continued feeling gigantic to me until he started kindergarten and I saw him standing at the bus stop with a group of 2nd graders and suddenly… tiny again.

    Right now I only have my son & I was noticing just the other day that he looks huge compared to how he looked when he was a newborn. He’s 16 months old now & doesn’t look like a baby anymore. It kind of makes me sad.

    Precious! My 5 yr old insists on wearing her ballet outfit that is now about two sizes too small. It sure makes me miss the times when she was that little.
