What Mini Wore #1

July 29, 2016

When Mini was born he was smaller than we’d been told to expect and as baby clothing sizes vary considerably between brands, it’s taken a few weeks for him to start fitting into larger sized newborn/first size clothes.

Now he’s got a little chunkier, it’s becoming a little more fun (and less restricted) when we’re choosing what he’s going to wear for the day. Over the last week he has been dressed in:

His space themed romper suit bought in the Next sale.
His animal themed 2 piece set from M&S (part of a 4 piece set).
His Peter Rabbit romper to celebrate Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday (bought from an M&S outlet).
A long-sleeved striped bodysuit from NUTMEG at Morrisons paired with striped leggings (with whale detail on the rear) from M&S (part of a 2 piece set and currently in the sale).

When I was pregnant we really enjoyed picking up little outfits, investing in items during the sales and thinking about what he’d look like in them so it’s nice to see him grow into himself and the clothes we bought him. It’s strange to think that when we bought them we had no idea how big he’d be or what he’d look like whereas now we can buy clothes to suit his personality.

Of course, as he’s a baby, some outfits don’t stay on too long because he likes to give us a false sense of security during nappy changes or he’s too greedy during a feed but as long as he gets a couple of wears out of them, I don’t really mind.

Out of the selection he’s worn this week, his Peter Rabbit romper seems the most fitting. It was Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday yesterday and he saw his Peter Rabbit book for the first time. We’d bought the book at Hill Top in Windermere on our first trip to the Lake District together with a view to it being the first book we’d bought for any child we might have. It was also his first ever outfit in hospital (it was significantly bigger on him on that occasion!).

    These outfits are simply adorable! I was so excited when my little ones got that bit bigger and I was able to dress them in ‘real’ outfits. Clothes shopping for little kids is quite possibly one of the best things in the world! (Not sure my bank balance would agree though)

      Thank you πŸ™‚ Clothes shopping for kids is dangerous isn’t it? Our friends have a little girl who’s only a few months older so we end up picking up stuff for her if we see girls clothes we can’t walk away from. I can imagine that it’s only going to get worse as they get older!

      I think it’s going to be scary how much he changes and how big he gets in such a short amount of time! x
