Aren't those tiny little baby shoes the cutest things you've ever seen? How can you not buy them for your baby? Save your money! While I was pregnant I remember looking everywhere for just the right kind of fuzzy little booties that would keep my end of winter baby's tootsies warm. Well, he never wore them. He also never wore the dozen or so other too cute to pass up little shoes that found their way to my house. His feet were either covered up by his clothes or with socks. Once summer arrived his little toes were naked and available for quick nibbles and kisses. Shoes? Other than a photo op I never even considered putting them on him. Now that we're swing back to cooler weather and his feet are a little bigger I'm still sticking with socks. Ok, I did buy these too cute to pass up biker boots that I just had to have the other day to match his new fleece biker jacket. I need help!
I thought I would be dressing Mr. O in complete outfits everyday - even if we were staying home. Ummm, nope! Some days it was just too hot to wear anything more than a diaper and a onesie. I just packed away his summer stuff and I was a little sad to see just how many things he never wore.
The Mir.ac.le Blanket seemed to be at the top of everyone's must have list for baby so of course I had to have them too. Those fancy swaddling contraptions with the velcro wings were all washed and ready to go before baby arrived and once he was here I used them exactly zero times. Mr. O was swaddled up nice and tight for the first few weeks and the receiving blankets we rescued from the hospital worked perfectly so I never busted out the Miracles. I wish I had waited to wash them so that I could have returned them.
