I can honestly say that I think my baby looks absolutely adorable in everything that he wears. Every new outfit he wears, my mom tells me ‘that is really his color’. To date, red, blue, gray, green, ivory, black, and brown are all ‘his colors’, according to my mom. I won’t argue, the kid is cute.
There is just something about baby jammies though. Is there really anything better than a baby fresh out of the tub with combed hair and clean jammies on? It isn’t fair that they go to bed so shortly after getting into the cutest of all apparel, and is probably why on the weekends we rock the jammies well into the late morning most days.
With all of that being said, I have come to find that with every size comes that pair of jammies. You know, the ones that never make it into the drawer because you put them back on the second they come out of the dryer. The ones that cause you to fight back tears when you finally accept the fact that you can’t squeeze your baby into them and you pack them away. While I could eat my baby up in every pair because he is just so darn squishy, these are the pairs, to date, that made me melt the most.
These jams were given as a gift, and I just couldn’t get enough. I never imagined my baby would fit into newborn jams (none of us were little babies), but since Jackson was born early these ended up getting use for a solid month or so. He was sooo tiny. I can barely look at these now, because I cannot comprehend how my baby fit in those. It really is so fun to watch them grow, but to be reminded how small they once were breaks your heart!
Ahhhh, the fleece football jams. These were soooo soft and cuddly. The last time he wore these, he may have been physically incapable of moving his legs, they were so tight (it should be noted that mommy had class, he had been wearing 3-6 month jammies for weeks, and daddy is the one who put him to bed). Just look at that little guy; already rocking the football cleats!
I should start this section off by saying I had a lot of ‘favorites’ in this size. Options really increase once you get out of the itty bitty stage, and our Jammie collection got pretty big.
These old navy jams are my absolute favorite (and I deem them gender neutral, which makes my heart happy because I know I will for sure get to squish a baby in these again!) the little owls, the soft colors, the v neck…I just can’t. Too much cute. I just packed these away last week, and yes, I’ll take a tissue if you have one!
This is where we currently sit. Gap and Old Navy start sizing in 6 month increments now, so I am hoping I can finally start enjoying my favorite jams for longer periods of time. Of course, my favorites have to be our Christmas jams. It was so adorable watching him examine the rudolph on his tootsies. He was not sure about that red nosed reindeer, but mommy sure loved it!
When the day comes to say goodbye to footy jams, don’t try to get in touch with me. I will be quietly (or obnoxiously) crying in a corner.
