When I announced that I was expecting a little over two years ago, family and close friends rejoiced. I had been married for about 5 years at the time and Neriah was the child they were waiting for. Five years is equivalent to a century in African years so you know our folks were ready for a grandchild.

Because of N’s long awaited arrival, g-ma , granny, aunties, cousins and close friends were ready to spoil and they did just that. Neriah’s wardrobe outgrew mine in a matter of months and many of the items that were gifted were way too big for her to wear at the time.

She was a pretty small baby and to this day she still fits some 18-24 months clothing depending on the


I recently went through a box I had put away filled with oversized items for N and out of it came the sweet baby blue romper she’s pictured wearing.

I wish I knew where it was purchased to share the info with you but I don’t :(  – I do know that it was purchased by my sis-in- law, but it was purchased so long ago which leads me to believe that the possibility of this exact item still being available is slim, but then again you never know.

I hope the “spoil factor” is still in full force when our second child comes around.

Until next time :)
