I'm not one to buy holiday shirts. I think it's kinda silly to have a shirt that's generally only used for one day. Even more so for babies who grow so fast they grow out of the shirt as it is being put on them for the first time. I'll give you that a shirt that says "love" for V-day can be worn again, but if it says "Baby's first V-day!" that's pretty silly. Don't get me wrong, I think they are adorable, and if someone were to give me one, I probably wouldn't turn it away. But to buy one myself.....I don't think I could go through with that.
But today is different. I have never really cared all that much for St. Patrick's Day, or rather, not anymore than any other holiday. But now I have a son and his name is Declan. Declan is an Irish name. Now, all of a sudden, today has a much bigger significance. There is a minimal amount of Irish in both Trevor and me, so not that much in Dec......but his name is Irish. So now I love today. And I bought a shirt. With a clover on it. And Declan wore it. And he WILL wear it again if I have anything to say about it! :)
