31 Days of Our Daybook: Pants

I can't believe I am actually writing this post before bed, as in on time. I'm usually too exhausted to formulate thoughts at the end of the night, much less type them out.

Buying pants for a baby is really kind of difficult for me. Should I buy them a little big? Just right? Should he wear a belt? Little baby girls can wear tights or leggings, which just seems so convenient to me and I'm so envious of that, but maybe the girl moms feel differently.

But alas, my son will not be wearing either, so I buy him pants. I realized this morning that he had grown out of all but two pairs of his non-sweatpant pants. SO, Owen and I headed to do a few errands before Gymboree and stopped at Old Navy for some jeans and cords for that cutie.

Owen really doesn't like riding in his car seat much, but whenever we pull up to Gymboree he smiles so big as I unstrap him from his car seat. he just loves it there so much, and subsequently I do too!

After class we ran the rest of our errands. We went to Target for a few things, then Bed Bath and Beyond to look for mini bundt pans (no luck) and Babies R Us to check out a few strollers.

We're in the market for an umbrella stroller. We're trying to decide between the Maclaren Globetrotter and the Maclaren Triumph. If you have any suggestions or tips I'd love to hear them!

The rest of the afternoon was pretty standard. Owen took a nap while I got dinner going and when Keith came home we sat down for dinner together.

It was definitely feeling like Fall this evening, so I made this Southern Living Shepherd's Pie and it was really good and pretty easy to make. Next time I make it I'll take photos and share the recipe.

Before getting Owen ready for bed we played a bit and Keith read him a few stories while I cleared out his closet and drawers of all the clothes that no longer fit him.

I filled a whole large laundry basket with pajamas, socks, onesies, pants, etc that he'll never wear again. It was kind of emotional putting away some of his cute little outfits that I remember him just wearing not too long ago. This sweet guy is growing way too fast!

I cried when I had to get rid of/put away some of my little guy's preemie/newborn stuff. "Oh, that's the first thing he wore in the hospital!" sniff sniff
