Haiku Friday: Off The Charts


So big so tall girl

bean pole stick figure tall drink

of water long legs


little hair ten words

wobbly walk maybe a crawl

still learning the ropes


Expecting much more

hard to tell you are just a

tall fifteen months old


M is fifteen months old, and at our appointment yesterday she ended up being right where we expected her. Tall. She still has a baby face for the most part, and she doesn't have much hair, but especially now that she is walking, people tend to expect a lot from her. Especially since weight wise, she is normal, so her skinniness makes her look that much taller. She has around 10 words including signs, though I doubt many people other than us could understand them, but we're counting them. A year ago, I was just starting back at work, worry about milk supplies, daycare and how I was going to get enough sleep. Now I'm chasing around a girl who went from walking to running in less than two weeks. Before I know it, she'll be starting Kindergarten.
Haiku Friday brought to you by the letter M, and the awesome Christina over at A Mommy Story.

Beautiful haiku. I love the imagery and all the different ways of saying tall.
