People always comment on how tiny Ava is and it kind of makes me upset. I always tell myself that they are just making conversation and she is "small" but it still makes me feel defensive inside like I want to retort back "well let's cut your chest open a couple of times and see how you do growing!" but most people don't even know about her CHD so that's not why they are saying it. I think I'm also sensitive to it because the question about Noonan Syndrome is still out there and I'm always concerned that she's stopped growing. But I have to keep getting the next size clothes out so that must mean something right?
*hugs* A woman in my DDC has been dealing with tongue tie and latch issues and just so so much since her daughter's birth, and I know she gets similar comments a lot and it really gets to her. People don't think before they speak, and that includes us too, and others who mean well. I totally understand what MW is saying- I love tiny babies, and always kind of thought I would have one, so since T isn't (don't get me wrong, she is not huge by any means, but she's not tiny and delicate either), I find it that much more appealing and cute when I see others. So I'm sure I've blurted out stuff to people about how teeny and cute their baby is, without thinking there might be underlying sensitivity.
I had other things I meant to respond to, but my brain just fizzled out... lol
