We've recently banned the word "fat" from our house. After calling my 3 year old daughter beautiful, she actually responded to me with the following sentence... "no, I'm not beautiful. I'm fat"
If that's not a reality forced blow to the head, I don't know what is. I didn't realize that I said that about myself as often as I do, but, we're putting an end to that right now. I don't want my daughter growing up thinking shes anything less than perfect. Shame on me. If anyone catches me using the F word, smack me.
And with that said- have I mentioned how difficult it is to dress a chubby baby?
We recently got this Tee Suit (a super cute one piece outfit made out of a recycled t shirt) from Seattle based designer x marks the tot. When it came to picking out which suit to get, I was completely overwhelmed. "But... there... are... so... many..." I hypnotically thought. I called Christopher over to the computer to help me monitor shop, and we decided on this random blue one. Because, we like horses?
This particular suit is a size B (12-24m). We actually decided on this one (not just because we like horses) because it was a short-suit, rather than a pant-suit. But for a fa- *smack!* chubby baby, that's exactly what we need. As you can see from the picture directly above, it fits our 8 month old like it was made for him, with growing room even (very rare for an f baby). And for being made out of recycled materials, the quality of the suit is excellent.
Must. Get. More.
