talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

2007 fall preview

Despite today's temps in the mid 80's, we really did have a couple days of cooler weather last week. They were my warning: sort through last year's winter clothes ASAP!

This afternoon after naptime we had a fashion show. Fiona tried on a number of things she's been wearing for the past couple of years. Not surprisingly they fit in most places, but failed to cover her ankles-- and sometimes her wrists as well! She has plenty of outerwear passed on by loving friends and relatives, and also some amount of clothing to get her started-- once again Ian and I wish to extend our deepest gratitude to our friends and relations who have so graciously gifted us with lovely children's clothing.

I still need to see how much we need to add for Fiona's core collection, though, before the cold winds blow. I'm still trying to figure it all out. She's such a tall, thin, lanky, (and adorable) child. 6's seem to be too short, and 6X's are often too big around. Her legs were aptly described by a friend as "coltish". What's a Mom to do? I don't know anyplace that sells "slims" anymore. Do you?

I began burrowing through old clothes looking for 2T fall and winter wear for Nora as well. No go. There was precious little of it, and what there was ended up being the 24 month stuff she wore at the very end of last winter. So our little Nora has been upgraded to a 3T, and now she has a veritable mountain of clothing! Shifting her up a size brought her closer to her August birthday sister size-wise, so she now has a heap of winter clothes plus a handful of summery things tossed in to enjoy at the end of this season to boot.

Nora couldn't care less about the heaps of fall finery-- which is great because that means she's also too young to notice that her older sister will be the only one going clothes and shoes shopping this season. Autumn, here we come.

Ryan is nearly 90 percentile for height and mid 50s for weight, so yeah, he's tall and skinny, too. Try WalMart if there's one near you. They sell slim. Or maybe it was Target that I saw slim...I get the two confused...
