A random assortment of a few things I'm thinking about this fall.
ON CLOTHES: It seems like every time I turn around Trey needs new clothes. I think the first two years see the most in terms of rapid growth, combined with the fact that here in the northwest we have very distinct seasons, but it honestly seems like every couple of weeks he needs the next size, or something warmer or cooler, or new shoes, a jacket, etc.
I'm hoping that as he approaches the 2T size, we'll need to buy less often, since theoretically that size should last us a whole year, instead of the 3 month (or shorter!) craziness that is newborn land.
Photos from the pumpkin patch last weekend...the Disneyland of the Pacific Northwest. (Side note: are your kids still into pumpkin patches? At what age do they think it's "uncool"? I feel like we'll only get a few years out of this tradition... everyone in the patch was either a baby, toddler, or parent. Hoping to get at least a few years out of this one and enjoying all the photos we do get at this age.)
Trey's romper is by Gray Label, one of our favorite children's clothing brands, super soft and stretchy. These are loose fit and running big, I bought up so it'll fit for more than one season.
Gray Label also just released this fun game for getting your toddler or younger child dressed. Roll the dice to see who's turn it is (child or adult) and then roll the other dice to see what item you get to choose (socks, shirt, pants, etc.). At Trey's age I still do all of the choosing, but I thought this was a fun, non-threatening way to approach the getting dressed struggle if other people are needing ideas.
I am still such a fan of our Baggu bags. Newest fall prints include strawberries and the oranges, which look like something straight out of Anthropologie. These last forever, carry up to 50 lbs, and can be thrown in the washer and dryer as well. The baby size is perfect for work lunches.
Fall uniform: denim, stripes, puffy vest, clogs, and this crossover purse.
This cute little bear headband is actually a set of headphones for kids! Since we travel with Trey a lot, we got him a certain hand-held electronic device so he could watch a show or play a game when flying or on long car rides. I looked for headphones for toddlers and was so happy to find these by CozyPhones, that have sounded embedded into them. So much softer and easier for little ears to wear than the standard kind.
Happy fall! So many things to love about this season.
