I thought I'd do something new here and try out my very first vote for the going home outfit for baby Nueve.
I've had this sweet ensemble for a girl since before Sullivan was born and obviously I haven't been able to get rid of them. I think they are so cute! Same blanket for both outfits to match, but the outfit on the left is a long sleeved onesie with matching brown pants and the other is little leggings and shirtall. You can't go wrong can you?
The next sweet outfit is from Gymboree and and I snatched it up during a massive clearance. I have a thing for birds and owls now. This outfit is covered in the sweetest birds including the matching blanket right down to the socks and bib. It's also a long sleeved onesie and has matching leggings.
3 choices for the girl. I know... but it is so hard to narrow down all that girly cuteness! That's why I need your help!
The boy loot is much smaller, mostly because I haven't found anything this time around that I've fallen in love with. I'm leaning a certain way with all of these choices, but you can help me out here too. The alligator peice is a blanket and matches the striped pj's with another alligator on it, and the brown and green striped outfit is a one-peice that is fleece from Carters. The "little brother" outfit is actually a set from Carters that has a beanie hat and socks to match the pants and onesie. It would match the alligator blanket, but I'm still on the lookout for a softer one with more of a chenille look.
Leave me a comment and put your vote in for both girl and boy!
This is all the girl loot waiting to be freshly washed for ??? It's fun to remember the other girls coming home in certain outfits and being able to enjoy them all over again. They of course, will each be given their own outfit and blanket when they have their first baby.
Yes, I think we have a name for him/her. According to Jared anyway. I always like to keep my options open, but he's pretty settled and won't be swayed anymore.
And this is the boy stash. I have a bit more for a boy since Sullivan was our last and I found myself still attatched to his outfits and blankets.
A friend gave me good advice years ago, and I've tried to stick to it. It's better to have a few things you love than alot you really don't, and every baby usually gets a few new things as gifts and it's always fun for mommy to pick out something too, so don't hoard absolutely every item over the years because it will take over your home!
This has equated to a rubbermaid for each gender and I can fit the entire first year and then some into one so it's easily attainable to check out what you have for the next size coming up and pre-plan a bit.
It's getting close, and I need to make a list and check it twice. Thinking about lining up childcare and packing my own bags now. We're 2 weeks away from the time I had Bradyn and Sophia and 3 weeks away from the time I had Harrison and Sullivan.
The doc is impressed with my cervix's good behavior, and I'm just grateful to not be on bedrest of any kind even though I feel all the same lovely things I've felt with the babies I've gone early with. The Lord is good! Watch this one will get good and comfy and wait the longest knowing how crazy it sounds out here! HA!
