I took a few minutes on Friday to measure Aleksa to find out what sizes she will need when she comes home. We're not sure how much time we'll have to visit with her between now and then since she's so far from where we're staying (and there's not a whole lot of options on that) and since we're about to start Wesley's adoption as well.
Anyway, we have "wiggly dimensions"... over clothes. Which means we *hope* that they're right :)
If anyone has a way to figure out what sizes these would be, especially for pants to have the right inseam length, I would appreciate it! I'm *thinking* she's about a size 6 or 8, but that's based on TOTAL height, and typically kids with Ds have longer torso's and shorter legs. So she may need more like an 8 for shirts and a 6 for pants??
Please post if you know!! THANK YOU!!
(no, she had no intention of drawing on the paper, but she was happy to hold the pen LOL! And we were glad she was done 'melting down' and agreed to sit in a chair for a minute...)
Height measured- 46" Height when using other measurements to add them together- 48" (inseam+seated height)
Hip to floor- 25"
inseam TO FLOOR- 21"
in seated position, bottom to shoulder- 18"
in seated position, bottom to head- 27"
foot length- 7" (wasn't able to get a width- she wasn't happy that we took her shoe off!)
Waist- OVER underwear, tights, and snowpants- ~24" (guessing really ~21/22?)
Chest- OVER undershirt, shirt, sweatshirt- ~24" (guessing similar to her waist :) ~21/22?)
