Fitting into the family

Somewhere, there is a photo of Dad and I in our matching red and black plaid wool jackets at Christmas. They look like this but red:

Sure, it is for a 24 month old and I have about 26 months until the baby will fit into it, but it was a small hunting uniform that I needed to buy.

To all of you parents out there… what else should I buy? =)
