Guess what I figured out at Target today? (BESIDES that I shouldn’t go there any more often than necessary because I always want to buy things that I don’t really need.)
It’s significantly cheaper to buy a t-shirt and leggings/pants than to buy a pajama set. Why did I not realize this before? The Dora pajama set (that attracted Jenna like a magnet) was $12.99 for the short sleeved top and long pants set. Instead, I bought a very cute (and soft) t-shirt for $2.99 and leggings for $4.99.
Eight dollars instead of thirteen is nothing to sneeze at, but I know I can do even better in the future. If it wouldn’t have been a pajama “emergency,” I would have shopped around or waited to find a t-shirt and leggings at a garage sale, resale shop or on final clearance. This time, because Jenna has suddenly sprouted out of just about everything, I didn’t have the luxury of shop-around time.
Oh! Did I forget to mention our big news? How could I forget? Jenna now weighs 26 pounds and is 36 inches tall! From January of 2007 until April of this year, she hovered right around 20 pounds and we just couldn’t get her past that point. In a little over six months, she’s gained six pounds. I think a celebration is in order! Too bad Hubby and I would be the only ones eating the cake, since she still isn’t eating anything by mouth (and hates sweets), ’cause WE don’t need to be gaining any more weight. In fact, I’m trying to figure out a way to give her some of mine…
And for a taste of her current cuteness with her blossoming verbal abilities: as we shopped around the store, she would repeatedly yell, “Wait! Did you see that? Did you SEE that?? YOU’RE MISSING IT!! Go BACK!!” Good times.
