my little clothes horse

thank goodness ben is not a girl...because i'm having some difficulty resisting buying little boy clothes and there are 3x the amount of girl's clothes out there.

today, what with the rain, i spent some time at the mall. and then i was at superstore. the results? two plaid shirts, jeans, a hat, a sweater, a shirt and tie, three long sleeved shirts and some boots. yikes. let's back up a bit...

yesterday, i was dressing my baby and discovering that i don't really have anything warm for him to wear. he has two hoodies. and that's it. and sometimes he doesn't seem to be a fan of the hood up or behind his neck when he's in his carseat.
lounging in his slippers

so my intentions for shopping were two-fold: 1. buy something to warm up the boy. 2. buy something for ben to wear to his baby dedication. buying baby clothes is just like buying adult clothes in that different stores size differently and all babies are different shapes. benjamin has a big tummy and short legs. pants that say 3 - 6 mo. seem to be too long but also too tight around his stomach. poor guy. and you know...you're not going to tailor baby clothes. (or am i?) anyways...my two-fold plan developed into a little more than expected. here are a few items...
i love the plaid shirts that are out there! they're a warmer option with no hood. cute. but this one looks a little big yet. ben was a good sport and let me dress him up in this outfit.
but he looks a little awkward. it could be the positioning...and the fact that the cardboard is still in the collar...he got sick of the clothing changes quickly and this was the only one i got on him.

now, in true rebecca fashion, i need to decide what to return. because i can't possibly have spent this much money on a 3 and 1/2 month old's clothing today. the jeans definitely need to go back if i can find a replacement on the facebook abbotsford clothing swap page. what else...maybe the long sleeved shirts (not pictured here). we'll see. but let me tell you...shopping for ben's clothes? just as awesome as shopping for myself. don't tell tim.

i just am taking back the jeans (too tight and expensive) and the 3 long-sleeved shirts (i don't like them). everything else stays. heehee.
