Nothing Gold

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

Levi is growing!

Which means that he needs new clothes. We put away all of 12-18 month size clothes this weekend because they are too small. This is really wonderful news for us. He's growing! I went shopping (alone) for him today and bought him the things that he needs. This is actually the first time ever that I've gone clothes shopping for him because he needs clothes. He'd been wearing the clothes he'd gotten when he was born and later gifts he'd gotten. I'd bought a few things over time, but only because they were cute and on sale, not because he really needed them. Except for shoes, we have needed new shoes. Anyway, it is pretty great. Also, shopping without him is awesome. I can look through racks and walk between stores quickly and just get things done. Also, I'd forgotten what it is like to stand in line and just stand in line.

Hey ... we've got some stuff you could go through and see if any of it might fit for now or later. But that's good news!!

Yay for Levi! I was putting his coat on him and thought - this coat is definitely not going to go for another winter. He'll have to have a new one! He's growing! How exciting!
