We bought these the day we found out we were having a boy. I remember before we found out, looking at boy shoes and girl shoes, wondering what we were going to have, dreaming of all the shoes I could buy. That's totally normal, right? I love shoes (really?!), and that was an important reason to find out the sex of our unborn child. So I could by shim (she/him) some shoes. And we did, first thing after the ultrasound. I kid you not.
I was a little unrealistic about how big the boy child's feet would be, and how long it would take him to grow into them. But before I knew it, he grew into these shoes, and then out. It all happened so fast. Here is another favorite from the shoe collection:
Oh, and we mustn't forget these precious little things. Not the trendiest things ever, but oh so very sweet. The first shoes he ever wore.
His sweet little hat from when he was born.
The outfit he came home from the hospital in.
This was actually the only thing we brought to the hospital that remotely fit him. I thought he was going to be this gianormous baby, so I brought outfits that were size 3 months. While he was pretty big, he was not 3 months big----especially after he went on his 3 day "Welcome to the World" fast. The incredible shrinking baby was still swimming in this on the way home. But I absolutely love it. So sweet and classic.
One of the 5 onsies that actually did fit for the first 2 weeks of life. He seriously had these and 2 sleepers, and that was it. I'm telling you, we had no newborn apparel because he was going to be a giant.
These are a few of my most treasured items from my sweet, precious baby boy. He's still a baby. And he will always be my baby. Even when he's all grown up and out on his own, I will always be able to go back to these sweet little items and remember when.
