Tiny baby things evoke such joy. Booties that will fit newborn feet. Knitted baby blankets to wrap a tiny body in. Handmade bonnets for chilly days. A white sleeper to put on after the bath. The feel of these items in your hands and the smell of them when your baby is in them is one of the best feelings in the world. This is how the attachment to things happens.
I kept the white onsies, the pink booties, knitted sweaters and bonnets as well as many dresses that were used by my girls (I am not a minimalist though very much admire that lifestyle). Unable able to part with them but not knowing when they would be used next.
When my son was born, I had some hand-me-downs ready for him. Shortly after his birth, friends and family delivered new and used baby boy clothing of which I am incredibly thankful. We probably have enough clothing but, I can’t help but do a little online browsing. There are so many adorable items for baby boys. I admit that I find great pleasure in choosing and buying things for my children. When I do purchase items for them, I fall into the #fewerbetterthings camp. I love the idea of heirloom quality clothing. I try to buy organic. I don't like to have sort through too many things.
Layers are essential for warmth. I have lots of white or striped onesies to put underneath sleepers or wool sweaters. Of course, thick sock are also essential or these slippers that were worn by his sister. Here are five things that I’ve got my eye on to keep my baby boy warm and cozy this autumn.
