The bear is small. He was 3 weeks early, and he has always been tiny. Although he is almost a year old, he is still swimming in 6 month sized clothes.
The recent dilemmas with this (besides constantly being told by strangers that my child is small):
-Finding a first birthday shirt that will fit him. They are normally 18 months with the occasional 12 months or 24 months. There is no way that will be anywhere close to fitting him. His birthday is December 7th. He's not going to grow that much in less than 2 weeks.
-Christmas clothes. All of the Christmas clothes in his size say "My first Christmas". It's not his first. It's his second.
The solution: My mother and Cafe Press. Thank you.
