Hand Me Ups?



My sweet Kate is 21 months today. She is such a goofy little girl. We love her so much. She is such a great big sister to Claire. I love seeing her hug, kiss, torment, poke & put stickers on her little sister.

So, today, Kate was in Claire's room opening all of her drawers and taking out all of Claire's clothes & socks. About 99% of Claire's clothes are hand me downs from Kate. (It has been very beneficial to our checking account having another girl). She grabbed a pair of Claire's little jeans (that were Kate's when she was a baby) and she was trying to put them on & was getting very frustrated & was saying to me "pants on". These jeans were size 3 months, so I figured there was no way they would fit. But, then, for the fun of it, I decided to see if they would fit. Lo and behold, these size 3 month pants fit Kate perfectly around the waist & made a cute little pair of capris for Kate.

Who would have thought a pair of size 3 month jeans would fit a
21 month year old. Not me! So, here is Kate wearing these pants when she was 3 and a half months old and today, 21 months!

  1. I love it! My boys have always been on the slim size too...Grady just turned 7 and he still has a few pairs of 5T shorts-that fit him and he wears all the time! One I found was actually a 4T....

  2. I love the concept of hand-me-ups! And I especially love that Kate is such a peanut, a delightful little peanut. They will be big before we know it and we will look back wishing for the days they were so tiny!

  3. Only you would actually have a picture of Kate in those exact jeans to compare--how do you do it? I think you are the most organized person I've ever met in my life!
