Breaking out the new outfits
Alden has officially outgrown his newborn togs. And so, I purged all 0-3 month clothes from his dresser this week and pulled out the gigantic bag of 3-6 month outfits I'd stuffed in the closet back in December. This week was the first time I actually got to check out all the new options, most of which were donations from some very cool friends of ours, the Precourts. I found a few gems in there, including this one, which has rapidly become one of my favorites. The inevitable problem with favorite outfits is that they are the ones that Alden manages to pee all over within minutes of changing. Meanwhile, the ridiculous onesie with the milk stains, football motif and "I play sports with my Daddy" or some such dribble embroidered on the front somehow always manages to go days without being soiled. Life is so unfair.

Alden has also started to really appreciate his stuffed animals. He loves the finger puppets, the crinkly-winged beetle and the Hungry Caterpillar, but is also quite keen on the Lamby, Cinko the Uglidoll and a sleepy looking rabbit in yellow striped pajamas affectionately called Mr. Bun Bun. When he's sporting a crown, all his loyal subjects gather round to heap praise on Alden the Almighty. He does his very best to stuff them into his mouth all at once. It's all very overwhelming for his royal Highness.
