"Almost fourteen months."
"Oh. Poor thing! She's destined to have to look up at everyone, even other little kids."
I smiled and nodded, and then her daughter, who was about 7 or 8 added,
"It's so cute- she's so little and she walks!"
They were just being nice, I know, but they have no idea how right they were. The mom's words especially struck me as odd- I mean, why would you say destined to look up at everyone? Most kids will eventually grow to be the same height or taller than their peers.
Also, we've been getting a lot of "Oh, she's just like a little doll!" comments lately from strangers.
