Loads of Nancy’s clothes are from the big stores in the sales – Tesco, Marks and Spencers, Next, etc. I couldn’t wake past a baby sale rail without buying something. I had to stop going shopping! But some of my favourites are the ones with a story. They’re either the ones that used to be someone else’s or ones that have been handmade for her. She’s just about to move up to the 3-6 month stuff, of which she has some lovely things but here are a few pre-loved and handmade favourites…before she grows out of them too!

Reuben’s old clothes

pre-loved

This was Reuben’s first onesie (from TK Max) and with Nancy looking so like him, I thought I’d been transported back 6 years every time she wore it!

She’s also been using his old muslin squares, blankets and towels, and of course Reuben’s monster suit (from Asda).

Rufus’s old clothes

pre-loved

Rufus is Reuben and Nancy’s newest cousin (born in April 2018) and he’s been kindly passing on some lovely things – including these amazing fire engine dungarees (handmade), some vests and these lovely foxy leggings (Joules).

Nancy 4 days old and 3 months old

My mum bought this cardigan for Nancy from her church, I think, made by one of the ladies. I love it and she’s been in it since she was only 4 days old! She’s nearly out of it now though.

My mum has since made her this cross-over cardigan, which will be fitting her for a long time I think. Happily, because I love it!
