A Sale Savvy Baby

This past weekend we hit up the consignment sale to find Emerson some clothes for the Fall. Although it can be a bit claustrophobic you can't beat the deals and the massive selection. I went last January and Emerson got tons of cute stuff for this summer. Well, of course she was still in my belly at the time. I'm still not sure if it was harder to shop while being very pregnant or with a 5 month old baby?? Since the sale was for cold weather clothes you are forced to predict what size your child could be in 3-6 months so hopefully I got it right. Right now she is probably around 11.5 lbs so she got mostly 6-9 month clothes for the cold weather. Does that sound about right? Then add in that all brands are different and it's pretty much a gambling game. But, overall it went great, we got a lot of stuff, and the lines were very fast.
Emerson begged me to let her try on her "new" clothes even though of course they are too big.
I think this is a good look for her.
She even knows how to pose already. Her Dad picked out this lovely outfit. I promise come winter we won't layer everything over pink plaid and with a Christmas hat unless she absolutely insists. Here are some more pictures of the weekend!
Enjoying a nice summer evening on the patio.
Is it okay if I suck your thumb instead???

I know that I post about weight every time you mention Emerson's weight, but she is like a doll to me! I just went and checked and Finn was 16 lbs 6 oz at 4 months! I absolutely love how petite Emerson is!

Thanks! I always forget how tiny she is until I hear other babies' weights. She is the "norm" to me. :)
