I'm such a shallow mother. I have purposefully avoided posting pictures of the kid on more than one occasion because he wasn't wearing cute clothes. See, I have one million and one super-cute outfits that are far too large for him - the 0-3 months clothes make him look like a drowned rat - so we've been cycling through the same four preemie/newborn size gowns since we came home from the hospital. Very blah.

So God must have felt sorry for the kid, because he sent my dear friend, Rachael, to the rescue. She brought us a slew of darling little outfits to borrow for a few weeks while Grayson puts on some weight and grows into his own clothes (cross your fingers that they'll fit before winter is over). Check out Rach's blog post on February 11 for a little trip down memory lane she recently took of her son Caleb, who was born several weeks early.

Not buying it, though

Here's Grayson in one of Caleb's outfits. And since he's wearing pants, I put the shoes Pam gave us on as well. Too darling!

Oh he's adorable! Congratulations (a little late)! Paisley had the same problem, all of her clothes were HUGE so we rushed out and bought 3 preemie onesies that she wore constantly for the first several weeks. Enjoy it while you can though because you can always put clothes on him that are too big, but when they're too small it's just not an option anymore.
