bringing home baby!


did you have a coming home outfit for your child (definition: a specially selected ensemble by the parents for the baby's first ride home from the hospital.)? karl's momma found KARL's coming home outfit in all its 1980 GLORY. there were shoes (with laces!), knee high socks, a blue collared onsie AND a HAT!! the hat is quite possibly the funniest and MY FAVORITE adorable part.

nate was a good sport and let us play dress up. we couldn't resist. we laughed a lot. it was stinking cute. then we looked through some old photo albums - i must say nater hater looks A LOT like karl. (don't they ALL look like their daddies!!??! we scanned a few pictures which i will post soon.)

with that little cap, he kind of looks like a fake baby doll. (of the scary movie variety.) in the cutest way ever. (Of course.)

baby nate didn't have a coming home outfit - i just threw some onsies (and a HAT!) in his diaper bag. but, after it was all said and done, i suppose his coming home outfit was his birthday suit!

6 weeks.

I think I had packed a "going home outfit" for Setler (though I dont' remember what it was...obviously very special), but in the chaos of getting discharged and the constant spit-up, he went home in a diaper and receiving blanket.
Yeah, they do all look like their daddies. Not fair, huh?

Please do a side-by-side comparison of you guys with Nate. ;) So we may judge who he looks most like. Hee. That hat is TOO fabulous.

It was cold, so The Boy had fleece pants and a zip up fleece jacket, with a onsie and TU hat and booties. LOL!

Nate does look like a doll. LOL! Poor karl.

I had coming home outfits for both of my kidlets. Neither of the outfits actually fit them. It was, in a word, pointless. Especially considering we didn't come home to an army of well-wishers. Just the dog.

uummm.... that thing is adorable. i don't think that they make outfits like that anymore. my mom has mine and my two brothers. whatever i have, i'm going to bring them home in one, per her request. lindsey brought adalynn home in her dress. it was pretty cute.

nater-tot = good sport already.

i'm so glad he loves his crib!!!
i need to get into the blogosphere more often. i've been out of commission for too long.
