You'd think I wouldn't be surprised that Munchkin is growing up. But I was still taken aback when I sorted through his clothes last week, and discovered that he needs a whole new batch. Again. Thanks to the Onesie-bummsies we are at least getting some really good mileage out of his singlets! But I finally had to conclude that the long sleeved onesies were too short in the arms. He's still wearing some to bed at night, 'cos I have yet to figure out what else to dress him in for bed!
I ended up with a massive pile of culled clothes, and nowhere but the dining table to store them. Not a good look, especially when trying to keep the dining table clutter-free.

I had to go on a household mission and find another container I could empty out to use for Munchkin's clothes.
This is now the post-Munchkin pile. We have sold a few things. And loaned out a few more. But this is most of it. Now, just to remind you that my boy is only 16 months old. Yup. That's a whole lot of clothes for one body for a short space of time!
Let me put this in perspective for you. The bottom three boxes in this pile contain JUST Munchkin's clothes. The pile comes up to my shoulders. I am 160cm tall (five foot three).

I had to put his gorgeous red winter cardigan into storage today. Very sad. It is SO cute. But the weather is getting warmer and the boy is getting taller.
