Ear Snowsuit

Pretty, pretty Mir drew my attention to this awesome deal: for today only (and only until they run out), L.L. Bean is selling this ear outerwear suit for $9.00. I have the coordinating hats and coats (a gift from my aunt) for the twins--I posted photos last year.

I am thinking of buying the ear suit for Henry--except usually for babies I do a "hat and thick blanket" combo that is SO easy. But $9.00! I hope some of you who have babies or are expecting babies will buy it!

I like "natural" (brown) best, and might have to cave and buy it. I have an L.L. Bean credit card, so shipping is free. (Mir says you can also get free shipping with code 7420440.)

Oh fine, I caved! I bought it in brown for Henry. If I change my mind, I'll put it on the gift shelf--I almost bought two just because it would make a cute baby gift.

Oh wow, that is so cute. I'm wishing I could shove my 18 month old into one. Don't think that will work. And then I'm tempted to buy one for a future baby. Am I that desperate? It's so cute, though! I'm glad you got it for Henry. We must see pictures the moment you put him in it.

oh my I might need that . . . I promised hubby we'd pick out the first new baby thing together (I know - barf) or I'd just buy it now. Maybe I will anyways and just hide it somewhere. cute cute cute
also, not to change the subject or anything, but any word on how the Avon deal went? I totally got sucked in yesterday - fingers crossed that it went well

I like how this post reads as a progression of your actions as well as an interior monologue. Like you were anticipating our thoughts and responding to them.

So! Cute!

I am now $9.00 poorer. My little Henry will also look like a squishable teddy bear in the brown.

Hopefully, he'll fit in the 3-6 month size when it arrives in 1-2 weeks. This baby is growing MUCH too fast.

Thanks for the link!

That is me, above. I'm setting up a blog for our triplet group and I keep forgetting to change my password. Because if there was one more person out there with multiples AND a new baby named Henry, that would just be a little too nuts.

Devan said...

*sigh* Why can't they have that in 12 mo size? O is already in 6-9 mo stuff. Bummer. It's too cute!

nikki said...

Grrrrrrr, it only goes up to 6 months and all the babies I know have been tipping the bottle quite a bit and have expanded their girth beyond 6 months. Oh well. Very cute though.

jen said...

hey! stop that! you owe me $9 now!

I got "lake." I don't know why, the brown didn't jive with me, but it's a good choice for a known boy! Maybe I should have gotten 2 and gifted the other one hehe.

When D was born, they had an oatmeal color that I totally would have bought for D except that it was $34 when I saw it. And the fact that my MIL did get him an ear snowsuit, which he outgrew in 2 seconds.

Jeninacide said...

Wow! Thanks! Just ordered it in Blue!! : )

Sundry said...

In the time it took me to enter my credit card info, both colors/sizes I wanted were sold out. DAMMIT.

Erica said...

Why oh why do they stop at 6 months? Like older children don't want to be exposed to such blatant cuteness?

Erin said...

Whoa.

WHOA.

So cute. So cute, I am tempted to buy one even though I have TWO like it, in white & in blue. What is it about baby clothes? Is there a treatment center? Because I *totally need one*.

Shelly said...

The bastards didn't have the size I needed, wah! Just as well, though, the boy would have sweat to death in it.

Sara said...

aaaw, this is reason enough to start trying for #3.. :)

Shannon said...

I know you are supposed to dress girls in lilac and pink, but it is just not Elise.

If they had had the brown it would have been her halloween costume.

bananafana said...

you should be working on commission here

Jess in Nebraska said...

Darn! #2 will be here in December, but we're not sure if it's a boy or girl, and the only color left is pink...AHHHH, I'm guessing my husband wouldn't be too excited about me putting our son (possibly) in a pink bear suit...I am however realizing I have a 50/50 chance...and for only $9.00.....AND it could always be a baby gift...hmmmm..

Alice said...

it's like you people are trying to get me pregnant, what with all the cute. NO BABIES. NO BABIES.

Daria said...

Wow great MIL posts AND links to the cutest and best deals in the world, I am you fan for eternity. Bought the pink one 0-3. Now I can't wait for the cold months ... oh fine can't wait for the baby either.

Swistle said...

Bananafana- Holy crap, I forgot all about this being the last day for this Avon ordering period! Some friend I am! I think Lee said she got 6 orders, which is AWESOME. Hey, maybe you could buy the little ear suit you want "as a gift" but later take it out for yourself.

More the Merrier / Jen Trips- Yay, our Henrys will be earsuit twins!

Devan & Nikki & Erica- I KNOW. I think they might have larger sizes--but only regular-priced, not the special $9 deal. And although $29.50 may be reasonable for the item, it's not an EXCITING price, is it?

Jen Never- My mom didn't think the brown was so great, either. She voted for Lake, which is the color I got Edward's coat/hat in. I went back and forth and finally went with brown--but I was VERY UNCERTAIN and almost ordered one of each so I could pick my favorite and put the other on the gift shelf. I'm going to want to see photos of your baby in the blue one!

Jeninicide- Yay! I think we're going to need a photo! Maybe I'll do a post and everyone who bought an ear suit can send a photo of it on a baby.

Sundry- Oh nooooooooooooooooooo!

Sara- Buy now, use later!

Shannon- Oh no, the brown is gone! This is sad, sad news!

Jess in Nebraska- Only pink left?? AAAAAAAAAGGGGHHH! As I read through the comments, the news gets worse and worse! (The pink one WOULD make a great baby gift, if you have a boy.)

Alice- Oh, come on: take one, they're small.

Daria- Yay for pink!

Swistle said...

I just went and checked, and apparently I am wrong about them having this in regular-price options such as larger sizes. It looks like either (a) they removed the regular-priced stuff during the day of the sale, or (b) they are clearing these suckers out completely.

I'm glad I ordered when I did--and sorry about the horrible tease for those of you who missed it!

jen said...

They do have them in the non-sale dept.. and that "natural" color is really nice, but I'm not spending that much money on it. You can usually get them on sale, keep an ear out. (that's to everyone, not just you, Swistle) I usually get the jackets for $15 or so, but I've never gotten lucky enough to see them for less.

I would guess they were clearing these out to have the newer looking design this year.

I am going to have to dig up a pic of D in his non-bean imposter ear suit to tide me over till the newbie gets to wear this.

LoriD said...

Oh cute - I'm BIG fan of the ear hats too.

Omaha Mama said...

So cute! And would make a great gift. I need a gift shelf. You are a genius.

Jana said...

That suit is oh so cute. Too bad we only get five or six days of winter in my little corner of the world; otherwise I would buy the 6 month size and stuff my 12 month kid into it.

Keith & Sarah Milligan said...

oooh, thank you for posting this! I just picked up a 0-3 month in Lake for the little boy coming our way in January or February ;)

Shannon said...

UPDATE - they added more colors and sizes.

BROWN is coming home to me for E's halloween costume.

Melissa H said...

Anything that puts bear ears on a baby is TOO CUTE in my book. Glad you caved for that awesome deal :)

velocibadgergirl said...

The dual ear-hat pictures have just about killed me with cuteness. I think it'll be a while before I recover!

Misguided Mommy said...

you are lucky you bought that or i would have publicly spanked you for not IT IS SOOO HENRY!!!!!

Misguided Mommy said...

plus when your uber irritated at the MIL you can just put him in that and squish him around the house like a little bear and then I'm sure everything will be okay

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much! I needed to get two shower gifts and even though I missed it yesterday I still got two of them today for $12.95 each and Mir's free shipping! You are such a peach! Thank you!
