Last week I swapped all of Athena’s 9-12 month clothes from the 12-18 month lot. I’d been squirreling away on ebay buying bundles, buying the odd bit here and there when I saw it, and had a lot of things given to us from my friend Amy now her daughter has grown out of it.
One the one hand i’m happy that I have a whole array of new outfit choices ahead of me, but I am far sadder that she is not a baby-baby anymore. All the clothes are now basically mini versions of what an adult would wear, it’s hard to find cute baby-y clothes now she’s in this age group. To make it worse she’s not even 11 months till Tuesday! It doesn’t help that she is developing daily into a proper person, imitating the pattern of our voices, throwing hissy fits every so often and generally growing up!
In our walk in wardrobe en-suite bathroom there are 2 big suitcases full of tiny baby grows, little trousers with feet on the end and coats with ears from sizes past. Hopefully at some point soon we’ll have another little sproglet to put in them but for now I am lending out clothes to people with smaller babies so that they still get used and loved.
The first two rompers are from TU at Sainsbury’s (my favourite supermarket baby clothes selection) and the last one is from Primark, annoyingly with no poppers at the crotch! Also since we’ve been using Real Nappies rompers tend to be much more accommodating to a bulkier behind!
