Hayes, Our Little Trendsetter

Over the last couple months, I have snagged a few items of clothing when I've found a bargain for our sweet Hayes (check here if you have no idea who I'm talking about and missed our official name-revealing post!)

I got this shirt at the Crew Cuts outlet on sale.  I can never resist a good nautical theme!  LOVE Crew Cuts!!!

Love love love gingham!  I think this shirt from Target is adorable (in a manly way of course, hubby!).

Another great deal from the Crew Cuts outlet!  I don't know if the hubby is extremely fond of purple, but I think the skull and crossbones make it more manly!

This awesome vest wasn't purchased at our yard sale, so I had to snatch it up! This will be perfect for the camping trips we love to take.

I couldn't resist these sweet P.J.s from the Carter's outlet for just $6!  Don't want to get too carried away with Africa-themed clothes, but these were precious!

One of my favorite baby stores, Janie and Jack, was having a huge sale and I thought that this striped one-piece was adorable.

I had seen these swimshorts awhile back (also at Janie and Jack), and was so excited when they were on sale!

The last item I got on sale from Janie and Jack was this plaid one-piece.  Love it!

Since we don't know exactly how old our little guy will be when he gets home (0-12 months is our parameters), to be on the safe side all of the clothing I have bought is 12 months or older.

I don't need to buy much since I have 2 adorable nephews who will gladly pass down their hand-me-downs (which I LOVE), but I couldn't resist a few cute things that I've found on sale!

Do you other adoptive mamas buy clothes for your little ones before you even have a referral?  It makes it so much more real for me.  I like picturing him in his new clothes!

  1. Oh my! GUILTY!!!!!!!!

    Just bought the cutest shirt at target "My mommy doesn't want your advice".

    Figured we'd be needing that one!

    AND I have a hand-me-down buddy too - so Adelyn (Who mind you is not even BORN yet) has a full set of 3-6 and 6-9 month clothes waiting for her!

  2. No, we didn't. We adopted from foster care and were told to expect a child 6 years or older. Imagine our surprise when we got the call saying there was a 13-month-old we could meet the next day. We only had 3 weeks to prepare for him to move in! We had some amazing friends who showered us with hand me downs and a crib super quickly. :)

  3. Brooke, sounds so cute! Can't wait to see a picture of her in it!

    Stephanie, it's wonderful to have such great friends! We are blessed by ours too!
