Vintage baby clothes

September 16, 2012 at 8:23 pm (Intro)

I know, long time no see, but I have a reason this time!  Hubs and I got rid of all technology for a week as we travelled down to LA area and went on a cruise (but that’s another story!).  Before we left, I took a bunch of pictures of baby clothes that our parents gave us, from when we were children.  I thought that it was really touching that they saved these clothes and I absolutely cannot wait to do some side by side comparisons of how we looked as babies next to Little Girl dressed in the same outfits.  Bear in mind that these outifts are 24-26 years old.  Take a peak!

ImageThat’s a brand new Baby Dior outfit from 1987 with the tags still on it! Hubs’ aunt bought it for him and/or his sister.

ImageMy sister and I were born a month early and this was one of the few outfits we could wear.  It was smaller than preemie sizing, and was actually a doll’s dress.

ImageBrand new, not even laced, Mickey Mouse shoes from Hubs’ family.

ImageSweaters/cardigans from when Hubs and his sister were little. These are so soft, and the little pearl buttons at the top are shaped like flowers.

This final pic isn’t clothing. Instead it is two of the rattles that my mother-in-law had when she was a baby that she saved and gave to us, next to a stuffed animal that belonged to Hubs when he was a baby. We also have, not pictured, two stuff animals from when I was little.

We have been so blessed lately. An acquaintance sent a big bag of girl’s clothes to church for us today, 39 items, already washed and super adorable.  A co-worker of my mom gave her 2 big bags of clothes for us that her granddaughter just outgrew.  One of my husband’s grandmas called this afternoon asking if we wanted another cousin’s high chair because their daughter outgrew it.  We haven’t even had a shower yet, but our house is filling up with baby stuff!

Vacation/cruise post coming later this week, with pics!
