Daisy Update

A couple of weeks ago our agency rep. told me she would ask for an update on Daisy but that we probably wouldn't get one.

A few minutes ago I got an email from her and the orphanage had sent an update! They said she is doing great and gave her measurments. No pictures though. Here they are:

Weight: 8.5 kg = 18 lbs. 12 oz
Height: 73 cm = 28 3/4 inches
Head: 43 cm = 17 inches
Chest: 44 cm = 17 1/2 inches
Feet: 11 cm = 4 1/2 inches

I looked the numbers up on the growth chart and she was not even on it! So then I looked her up on a Chinese growth chart and she is 15% for weight, 10% for height and 10% for head. She is tiny!

Well, I guess those 12-18 month clothes I bought her are not going to fit! Better do some more shopping before we go!

By the way, we are leaving this Friday! We are so excited!

I will try and blog from there, but may not be able to. If I can't, I will post when we get back. Wish us luck!

Allie was the same size when she was a year old! It was fun having such a petite thing. She's finally made it onto the charts and is making up quickly for lost time. Can't wait to see your little Daisy!

I don't know if this helps....but she weighs the same as Claire. I am going to have to see how tall Claire is and then you can get a good feel for what she looks like. Cliare is still in 12-18 month clothes though becasue she is a little taller. If you need 6-12 month summer clothes I have a bunch I could give you. YAYAYAY!
Can't wait.
