MY BABY! My baby (now almost 22mos) is in (T)oddler clothing!
It finally occured to me while shopping the adorable $4 tees at Target (love you, Target. call me!) that I was just fooling myself by looking at the 24mo clothing. A little voice in my head whispered, “Momma, you’re baby’s wearing a T now.” Sniff, sniff.
He confirmed my suspicions of his impending childhood (vs. the retreating babyhood) by pointing at his chicken strips while we were out to lunch and asking me, “It’s hot?” PREVIOUSLY SPEACHLESS TODDLER NOW SPEAKING SENTENCES SAY WHAT? I almost started crying, but my 12yo (who also witnessed the amazing verbal exchange, which my son repeated a few more times) begged asked me not to.
Also during today’s out-and-abouts, he spontaneously shouted “Cow!” from the back seat. Sure enough, two seconds later we drove by a Chick-fil-A (love you, Chick-fil-A. call me!) with a huge inflatable cow out front. My son hollered “Moooo!” at it as we drove by.
He’s an explosion of language and learning these days, and I love the way it catches me by surprise. I also love the way he looks right this moment, watching a Dora video, wearing his super cute new orange and white striped shirt. Size 2t, of course.
