The joys of the British summer
This short video was done in January. Who would have thought that Eddie would still be wearing this coat in July. But today he still had it on, as the weather is very un-summery, the day being wet and damp.
I bought this lovely coat from Next in the after-Christmas sales, when the first waves of the frenzied shoppers have receded and the supplies of the sales items were mostly depleted. It is warm, weather-proof and stylish.
Eddie is a very outdoorsy boy, and whenever it stops raining, he is eager to go out in the garden to jump in the puddles and get messy with the mud. This coat keeps the chill away and is comfy for all sorts of physical activities like running, jumping and climbing up where you are not supposed to climb. A perfect outfit for little boys made of frogs and snails and puppy-dogs' tails.
This particular coat is not available anymore, but Next has a variety of coats on offer for active boys. I guess we'll have to buy a new coat when the autumn comes, as he is growing fast. In a few weeks Eddie will be two years old. How time flies. My baby is becoming a big boy, though of course, he will always be my baby, whether he is 12 months or 30 years old.
