I finished my Christmas shopping yesterday morning while Stephen stayed home with the kids. Elizabeth won’t seem to nap lately when she’s being kept by Daddy and big sister Maggie. She always takes a morning nap for me but not yesterday while I was out, and she skipped her nap the other day when I went grocery shopping in the late afternoon while Stephen was home, too! Not cool, baby girl. :P
Yesterday afternoon, we went to a thrift shop. I was on a mission to find pants for Elizabeth. All of a sudden, in the last week or two, she has jumped sizes and no longer fits in any of the 9-12 months pants we have! She can still basically fit into the 12 month onesies, but even they are getting tight in the crotch and pulling the neckline down. So now, at 5½ months old, she’s wearing 18 months baby clothes. O_O And considering how fast she’s growing, I didn’t want to pay full price, so I was hoping to get some secondhand. And I did! I found eight pairs of pants for her, ranging from $1-3 each. ^_^
I also found an adorable and silly shirt that I intend on having her wear on Christmas Eve to bed so we can get some pics the next morning with her and her siblings by the tree and presents. I believe it was $2.
Oh! So, she has tried rice cereal with expressed breast milk three times now and is only somewhat impressed. She likes the spoon coming toward her mouth and she opens for it but she doesn’t know quite what to make of the substance that ends up in there, lol. She tried sweet potato on Saturday night and liked it! I had been holding her in my lap as I ate and she was watching the spoon with great interest so I offered her a tiny bit and she really seemed to enjoy it. Until she shivered from it like it was cough syrup, that is! Ha
Well that’s it, I guess! I’m off to get ready for the day. Just thirteen days ’til Christmas!
Do you thrift/charity shop? What have you scored lately?
