Sharing Clothes

Bathtime was over, and Roman disappeared to get "dwessed". We knew that he would come out with some odd concoction of clothing, but he gleans such pleasure from it that we try to humor him, after all it won't be but an hour before he is back in to his pjs or some other item that is not fit for facing the outside world. However, this time he vanished inside my vast closet where there is no Roman apparel. He was in there for a while when he came back out quite pleased with himself. Somehow he managed to squeeze his 2 year old plump body into a 3 month old shirt of Boaz's. We laughed as he sported it around the bedroom for all of us to get a good chuckle. He willingly jumped on the recliner so we could savor the moment with a photo. He loves loves Bo's socks too. He will either put them on his hands, because we put them on Bo's hands when he was first born, or he shoves his chubby foot inside the newborn sock. Yes, it stretches them out and we have gotten on to him, but there were a couple that were too far gone after he secretly wore them for the first time. We have now declared them to be his "baby" socks, and so he treasures them. I love having a toddler, they truly make me smiiiiiiiiiiile!!

This is a picture after he tugged and pulled the shirt down as far as it will go. It almost looks doable, in an orphanage-homeless sort of way.....hahahaHowever, once he began to wave at the camera the jig was up. No hiding that perfect bellybutton with that shirt. Noooo sirreeee bob!


P.S. Getting the tiny shirt off wasn't as much fun, it was a real tug of war, as you can imagine!

HA!

My two year old toddler Sofia was just in my closet trying to put my boots on! She is a shoe girl, shoes have to be on no matter if she is in a diaper of naked or fully dressed....

I'm reminded of the joy I glean from her...

Your Roman is sure cute....*sigh* I'd sure like to have another boy someday!

Be at peace today!

The sad thing is... tomorrow you will turn around and be writing about how he is now 16. Time goes so fast!

I'm glad you are able to fully enjoy him.

I have a few priceless photos like that. Toddlers are such a riot! Every day there is something new to chuckle over. Roman is a gorgeous little guy.

How cute!!! And by the way when I said it wouldn't have been Levi's first teen party I was just teasing, I didn't want to make you feel guilty or anything. Well GTG.

Lori said...

LOL! Now that is just too cute!

Jules said...

HEHE, I honestly don't know HOW he got INTO it! He was probably still a little bit wet and clothes are hard enough to get on when you are wet, even more when you're trying to fit into very small clothing, LOL. But he looked adorable!

Laura said...
