Come and Celebrate!

Photobucket

Little Man has been in the same size clothes for 3 years. It was a very nice year for clothes, but still, after 3 years, it has gotten old. Since he had his g tube placed in January, he has gained 10 pounds and grown 2 inches!! And taaa daaaa!!! He is now in a size 10! I have been waiting for 3 years to buy him a new size in clothes. Today it happened. (Princess and I have been sharing her car, my van is in the shop for a very expensive intake manifold overhaul, sigh) We have a really good used kids clothes store and I did sooo very well! Wanna see?

10 button up shirts, 1 tee shirt, 3 pairs of shorts, 2 sets of jammies, 3 outfits for June Bug, 2 outfits for the Pea, and all for under 80$! I love good deals.
I finished up at Target.

Little Man needs full elastic waist pants because his belly is often bloated because of his motility issues. I got 2 pairs of pants and 5 pairs of shorts for just over 50$. I just need to find him a pair of sandals and he is good to go for the summer and early fall. It is really important to me he look nice, he has enough going against him without people thinking he is unkempt. I have been waiting 3 years for this day. I have worried and fussed over his height and weight. And now, this day is here. While all the ugly stuff hasn't been any fun at all, this day is all the sweeter for the wait and stress. He has grown. Wow.

P.S. I got the job.

My DD is also slow to outgrow clothes. She is 8.5 and still wears a size 6.

Do you have a problem with him being overly attached to clothes he has worn for so long? We have had moments of trauma when she does finally outgrow something. Not so much because it was special, but because she wore it for so many years it was familiar. Almost like a second skin.

Katherine said...

Congrats on the growth and the job!

I like the leather boys sandals at Target. My boys have worn them most of the summer the last few years. They are comfy and look good too.

Jessica G. said...

Congrats on getting the job!! So sneaky to squeeze that little tidbit in there at the end...
I, too, love a good bargain but seem to be deal-impaired. Maybe we should go shopping together. :)
