Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Shhh....LaNina Can't Find Out

We're assuming the Magster's going to be taller than La Nina when all the growing is said and done.  She consistently tracks an inch or so taller than her sister when same age measurements are compared.  Her hands have been bigger for years.  And the doctor projections always leave the Magster standing 3 or so inches taller.  

But today, we took a step closer to seeing this height advantage into reality.  Both girls needed shoes for an upcoming Multi-cultural dance performance.  The instructions were simple:  white dress shoes.  The assignment was not so easy to complete.  There were no shoes at the first two places we visited.  But we found the shoes at our third stop.  And then it happened, the Magster needed a half size larger than her sister.  

The good news is La Nina was so distracted by all the shoes, she never even noticed that her sister and I were shopping in a larger section.  And in the end, she never caught on we bought her sister a larger shoe.  It's not a big surprise, but La Nina's ego will take a beating when she finally figures it out.

    Ha ha, same issue in my house. My younger son is nearly the same height as Bobby and people always ask if they're twins. The doctor thinks Shane will easily have 3 to 5 inches over his big bro.
