Christina knew that Carol was knitting Trevor a ski sweater to match the family design. And she expected that it would arrive by Christmas. What she didn't know was that Carol was also knitting a matching pants and cap so Trevor would have a complete matching outfit!
Hey, if grandparents can't spoil their only grandchild it would be a sorry state of affairs indeed!
Carol knows that this act may spark some jealousy among other family members who have only a sweater. Goodness knows how much jealousy it might spark among those who have long hinted that THEY would like a matching sweater, because they are almost a part of the family. And there is a precedent: a very select few other "almost" family members (not related by blood, marriage, or ersatz adoption) are proud possessors of one of these unique items, complete with a certificate of authenticity!
All I can say to the wannabes out there is that some serious sucking up to Carol might be in order.
But as far as anyone besides Trevor getting a matching pants set... Nah! Ain't gonna happen!
Okay, enough background. Here's what it looks like.
Yeah, even though he's less than 9 months old, he can stand up if he leans on something. You can see that the pants are a little too long for him, but maybe he can wear the outfit again next year.
On the right, I think he's ready to get that hat off. It's probably a little warm. he does live in Florida, after all.
Finally, below, I'll toss in a picture of Trevor with his mom and dad. His dad's sister gave the three of them matching tie-dyed tee shirts for Christmas. That's the reason for the colorful shot.
Don't you just love the little guy's smile? Guess I'm a proud grandpa, huh?
