Ok, can I rant a moment? Sure I can, cause it's my blog, right? Here I go:
What gives with infants clothing? The sizing is all over the place with them, depending on the manufacturer. Or maybe it depends on the COUNTRY it was manufactured in? All I know is Spencer is 4 month and 10 days, weighs 16 pounds and 5 ounces and is 25 and 1/4 inches long...he is wearing anything from 6 months to 12 months. Yes, you saw that right..12 months! I pulled out this onesie, which is by Osh Kosh Bgosh this morning just to try it...and low and behold, it fit! Not big, but perfectly, with room for his diaper to expand once he pees. Then I have some items that are designer (Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Juicy) and they are marked 9 months...and guess what? They are almost too small! If I had waited another month or two to have him wear them, he would not have fit in the clothing. That's not just a little difference, that's a HUGE difference! This is worse than me going to look for jeans and there being a difference. I mean usually I go up one size or on a good day, down. But never several sizes in either direction. I guess I have to pick a brand and stick to it? Cause trying clothes on an infant does not seem like loads of fun!
My second rant is about loss of hair. When I got pregnant my awesome stylist Brenda warned me about loss of hair. My hair has really enjoyed the preggo hormones and to me looks the best it has in quite a while. I was able to grow all the color out of it and stopped chemically straightening it. I was keeping it on a 6 week trim cycle and it was fabulous. But then I got the impending hair loss warning and I shrugged it off. I mean I am one that loses a lot of hair on a daily basis anyway. I mean I have a lot of hair and when I comb it, a lot comes out, so her warning was no biggie to me. Fast forward to almost 3 months after Spencer arrives and my hair starts falling out. And not just a little but a lot and everywhere. I feel like a dog shedding a winter coat! The first time I ran a comb through my hair in the shower I about screamed...the comb looked like it had taken off all the hair on the back of my head! Washing the hair off the comb STOPPED UP the DRAIN! Talk about disgusting, there was no warning about THIS amount of hair being lost. And did I mention it is everywhere? On my clothes, the floor, the bed...drives me crazy! But the best part? I now have two almost bald patches at my temple. How about that for a sexy momma boost? *roll eyes* I wear my hair in a ponytail a lot...the bald patches? Not so hot looking. And when I tell people about this, everyone looks at me like I'm nuts! Why? Cause no one I know lost their hair! Say it with me...gggrrreeat.
Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now and take my hair with me...
