Summer skin: from your head to your toes
I remember so many people talking about how fun it is to dress a girl while I was pregnant. Sure, the girl section is full of glitter, tutu’s, and bright colors, but the boy section looked fun to me as well. There is no shortage of stripes for boys, but I’ve found the little tank tops or henleys to be my favorite thing to put on David.
Practically anything from the baby boy section at Zara is a win in my book. In fact, my friend Joanna loves to buy her sons clothes at Zara as well. AND both of our husbands would prefer the boys to wear, like, sports jerseys and other manly things 100% of the time. What can I say, when I see pants with knee patches I can’t pass them up!
So, David is a big boy. At his 6 month check up last week, he weighed in at a whopping 20.9 lbs. Hello rolls. His thighs will. not. stop.
As it turns out, my dad was a really big baby. And his dad was too I think. I didn’t expect David to be so . . . solid and hefty, but perhaps that runs in my family! We had dinner with friends last Saturday night and their little girl (who is about 1 month older than David) weighs about 15 or 16 lbs. She’s adorable, and it cracked Justin and I up at how little she seemed compared to David.

Zara baby boy clothes run super big, even for David. In Carter’s he wears 9 or 12 month things, but the fit is really nice. And Old Navy clothes run pretty true-to-size as well.
But despite my clothing choices, David prefers one thing:
