Elliot is between clothing sizes. Also, diaper sizes. In the beginning, he was a small baby, coming home at only six pounds, three ounces. He wore Pampers Swaddlers size N, for newborn and I believe they went up to 8 or 9 pounds. Well, he hit 10 pounds and his little legs – which finally added some bulk – were squeezing out of those diapers. So we moved onto Swaddlers size 1. Well, those are too big because the first time he wore them and I put him in his little papasan seat… let’s suffice it to say I had to wash a baby and do laundry. He’s sort of fitting into them now but I fear for each surface upon which his butt rests.
Clothing-wise, most of the onesies that say 0-3 months are getting to be difficult to button. Yet others are still ok. Some of the garage sale things we got that are size M (Carters) are still too huge but the size S are leaving him with sleeves too short but still fit length-wise. The same goes for pants in terms of length. Any 0-3 month pants are a little too small in the waist but the right length. So 3-6 months are just all disproportionate. And I suppose this is why I just shouldn’t buy him anything right now. Except I did. Our brand new Kohl’s opened and he got this and a little plaid shirt that will also match those pants. Since it was opening day, everything was 50% off; I saved a buttload on that stuff so I don’t even feel bad. Besides, he’ll have to grow another two inches for those pants to not fit and he has grown two and a half inches since birth.
I think we’re good to go.
