Summer clothing for the 2T set

Posted by crayonbeam on 2008.07.08 at 22:19
Normally Max is dressed in 1000 layers of fleece, being a San Francisco baby. But we're going to Sacramento for the weekend - in August - and I want him to have something lightweight to wear.

I'm finding plenty of short sleeved stuff at my normal go-to for quick clothes: Old Navy. But Max's dad, and to some extent me, thinks that long sleeves are better at keeping the sun off than sunscreen.

Anyone seen any lightweight shirt and pants that are not short? Old Navy has polos, which I'll use if I have too, but I worry that even that will be too hot. Maybe I'm projecting because the heat makes me very cranky.

In other news, I had passport photos taken of him yesterday. (My sister is living in Sydney, and I am thinking of visiting.) OMG he looks so surly!!!! A better mom would have waited until he was in a good mood, but I just wanted it done. We're also traveling to Ohio for my class reunion in September - his last free flight. I am crossing my fingers for an extra empty seat.

Other milestones: Max says baseball when shown photos of baseball players. I'm so proud. He is in size 4 diapers finally, and he got his first pair of hard soled shoes: Crocs. I just couldn't resist since we were playing in the water so much and the leather shoes take forever to dry out. And I posted a bunch of pictures he took with my old camera phone (some I took - hopefully you can tell which.) That phone is my emergency nothing else will work toy, but I keep forgetting to charge it. Argh.

He's been a super toddler lately - up at all hours, cranky cranky crank-a-potomus mr cranky pants, so it's nice to come here sometimes and remember that he isn't demon spawn.

ps - we're still nursing. Is anyone else?
