He is a growing boy

How does that jingle go....
"He's a growing boy.... look how he's shooting up"..
"He's a growing boy....( i have forgotten the words....)..nananana...nanana"....
You guys know what I mean na???
Every few weeks , the maid and I sit and sort out Joy's closet...he outgrows his clothes every two weeks... and if it isn't that ... the weather changes and we need a change of clothing then....
Joy has been very lucky ..as I keep mentioning through out my blog.... all our aunts and other relatives...( both the husbands and mine) keep showering us with gifts for Joy...they come with bags of clothes for him.... the lil kiddo is only 9 months and owns 5 pairs of jeans...( a pair of light blue Levis, dark blue Next,blue- black acid wash, grey with red piping and black ) he has been wearing these from the age of 3 months and has them as of now right up till the age of 2.....( by the ways .. I checked.. The husband has two pairs of jeans and I have three .. which still makes his count more than ours)
Anyways... we keep going through all the clothes we have for him and changing his closet ..... yesterday ..we sat and aired all his trousers... yes he has four of those.. in beige, deep blue, moss green and black.... We had put these away for the past two months due to the intense heat... there was no way he was going to wear jeans in that weather.... but now that its quite pleasant in the evening ... I pulled them all out....
Joy all dressed up in his sandals, beige trousers and white Tshirt... all set to go out shopping with Ma
Joy looks quite cute now... we dress him up for the evening.... irrespective of where we are going and what we are doing in the evening... he is dressed up... and this usually means... full pants or jeans and a smart shirt or T shirt ... if its a lil nippy then he wears a basket ball jersey...
During the day ..if we are at home... he lives in his collection of 50 sleevless thin vests... some white ...some in different colours with cute slogans and his diaper....if someone comes home we slip on a pair of shorts over his diaper...
All this shifting his closet around also means that we have huge amounts of clothes that now don't fit him.... causing a HUGE storage problem for me.... after all I only have so many box bed and lofts...right....
so now we have another task to do.. we sit and sort out those clothes we think we might use incase I have baby number 2( my maid is very hopeful..and keeps keeping things I discard away...saying..."aar ekta to hobe..") these are the really nice ones....I hope all those people who gave Joy so much will do the needful for Baby no.2 as well...so those clothes we keep aside.. dryclean, or wash and sterilize and then get vacuum pressed and stored into the box beds.. and then some I give away to the help at my mum's place and also my maids to take home with them to give to family members having babies.....some the ones which are too good to give the help... I ask my friends with babies younger than Joy...if they would like to use them... and send them off...etc.... but its quite a task and every two months I have to do this....quite cumbersome.....
Here is another one of him.... He looks so cute...
