I love footed PJs. Not for myself, of course--for my kids. They're practical (no socks falling off feet) and adorable. The thin knit ones are just the right weight, even during the summer. When we stopped swaddling Zoodle a few weeks ago, it was exciting to start using little footed jammies for him.
When Chickie hit 12 months or so, it was suddenly a lot easier to find two-piece jammies than my preferred one-piece variety. But I could still find the good stuff at Carter's and Children's Place. At Christmas I even got matching drop-seat PJs from Pajama Gram for Chickie and her cousin Molly. (Cute but expensive--and not the best quality.)
Chickie will be three in January. Am I still subjecting her to such juvenile jammies? Here she is this morning:
(Lovely pose, isn't it?)
As you can see if you look closely at her left heel, her size 2T PJs are wearing out. She's starting to outgrow them too. 3Ts, here we come.
I think I'll keep putting Chickie in these practical jammies as long as I can get away with it. I can just imagine her therapy sessions when she reaches adulthood. "Why can't I seem to grow up? I don't know, but my mom was still dressing me in footed sleepers at the age of 17...."
