Happy 9th Birthday!

It's been almost two years since this little gem became my daughter. She has shown me the most joyful parts of motherhood. It's hard to convey how tiny she still is. Her four-year-old friend is only 2-3 inches shorter than she is and he's a perfectly average sized four year-old. Last week, she was weighed and measured. She is 113.5 cm tall (44 3/4") and 42.4 pounds. She was 102.5 cm when I adopted her! When I look back at those pictures, she looks like a 3 year old in my arms at 7 years of age. I still marvel at how tiny she is; how easy it still is to pick her up and hold her.

She wanted her birthday on the weekend, with family only, so she will have her cake tomorrow, but we celebrated a little yesterday with friends at a restaurant and she had a fun time.

Eliza just turned 7 and has about the same measurements as your sweet baby. Eliza is tiny, but not the smallest in her class.
