I'm 5' tall, so it's really not a stretch (no pun intended) that Cameron is finally taller than me. It is a relief, though. All his life he's travelled along the 5th percentile in height and weight, and in the last couple of years I was getting really concerned that he was going to be extremely short. While he's had a great growth spurt this year, he still has a way to go, and I'm hoping he'll reach at least 5'8" or 5'10", like Mark.
It's always amazing that every new "season" (mainly as fall and spring approach) we break out last season's clothes and try everything on again. And, as usual, both kids need all new shorts this year (Cameron grew out of a whopping eight pair...) and some new shirts. After separating the "what fits" and "what doesn't fit" into piles, Annalisse loves to hear the words, "Well, I guess you know what this means...", because of course, it means "Time to shop!" Cameron, who hates shopping, dreads those words. Luckily, neither kid is really picky about brands, and we can do most of our shopping at Old Navy and Target. Annalisse only occasionally spends the big bucks (of her OWN money) at Abercrombie or Hollister, and Cameron doesn't care at all about those places...some of his t-shirts are five years old (and he's just beginning to grow out of them).
So, it's off to Old Navy for "everything you can stuff into the bag for 20% off" sale. Wish us luck. Now it will probably snow again.
