Her Full Moon and Birthday dress
Over the weekend, we were shopping for a dress for Zara. We were looking for something which she can wear for her birthday, Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year (4 in 1). When we had to change her into the clothes we'd selected for her in the shops, we saw her reflection on the big mirror, she's so skinny and long (or was it some tricks they do with the shops mirror?), I don't know why we never really noticed this before (oh well, we know she's quite lean, but never knew she's THAT thin)! We found that most of the clothes meant for her age were way too loose for her, although the length suited her. We eventually bought a dress for her from Zara which didn't look too 'baggy' for her. When we went home, and I hung her dress in the cupboard, I spotted the dress she wore on her full moon (a gift from Aunty Abigail, and unfortunately, worn only once). Just out of curiosity, I took the dress out and compared it with the one we just bought. Guess what? They seemed to be almost the same size. I got Zara to change into the dress! She could fit into it (meant for 0-3months), and looks even nicer than the time she wore it 11months ago! So maybe, we'll let her wear this dress on her birthday instead. Her Full Moon 11 months ago 11 month later, it still fits her!
