Another Baby Clothes Story

This sleeper has become something of a family heirloom. All of our children except Moose have worn it on their first Christmas (Moose was only about six weeks old for his first Christmas, so he had his own, very small, “My First Christmas” sleeper). They ranged in age from five months to over nine months when wearing it, so it fit different children differently. I was a little concerned that it wouldn’t fit Chickadee (it barely fit Turkey, but it was the largest size available), but it snapped up with minimal straining. It is a maddening piece of clothing, because it snaps down the back, which makes getting it on and changing diapers exercises in frustration, but it’s also extraordinarily cute and soft, and babies tend to look like a candy cane in it, so the aggravation is well worth it!


This is one of those pieces of clothing that I’ll never give away, and should any of our children ever want to use it for their own children in the future, it will be here, just waiting to celebrate another first Christmas!
