A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

The Monday Snapshot – Pack ’em Up!

5 Comments

I packed up all of Bryson’s 6-12 month clothes today – 95% of which were never worn. Matthew was built true to size, so lived in jeans (you all know how much I love to dress my boys in jeans EVERY DAY) and sweaters but Bryson is just too husky for jeans. What this means is that he has not gotten any use out of Matthew’s monstrous wardrobe (6-12 months is my largest collection so far) – and hanging them all up in his closet was a true waste of time. 🙂 I was so hopeful that these clothes would get a second round of usage but no. Oh well.

What this has also meant is that Bryson has gotten all new clothes and has a style all his own, which is fun! He has spent the winter so far in super cozy sweater one pieces and everywhere we go, people say that he looks so cuddly and comfortable… Two words that actually describe him well!

I went through our 12-18 month supply and it’s mostly summer stuff, so I need to buy some long sleeved t-shirts and sweaters. The 12-18 month jeans are working for now, so I will be taking full advantage of that… Even if I have to roll up the legs quite a bit!

Here’s to hoping that maybe these clothes will get another chance if we have a third (boy desired!). If not, someone at the consignment stores will be hitting the jackpot in a couple of years!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. We had a lot of gender neutral 0-3 and 3-6 month clothes that I was excited to reuse again; but our daughter was born in June and our son in October so the seasons were off and a lot of it has been useless. So sad! The same thing happened with my maternity clothes! Drove me crazy!

    I’m sorry you didn’t get to use all these. Maybe for number 3?!

  2. Bryson is soooo cute- what a squishy, smiley baby! I love those one piece sweater things- so cozy and soft!

  3. He is so adorable I just want to squish him! I’m going to have the same problem. A lot of our clothes will be off season. I second the maybe for number 3?!?!

  4. Not possible that he’s getting so big, so quickly! I love that you do these pictures, what a cute idea!

  5. He sure does look cuddly and cozy!! I just want to snuggle him!!
