Since finding out that we're having a girl, I've been having a hard time resisting all the cute baby clothes and accessories I keep seeing everywhere. It's amazing how cute little girls clothes are these days - not everything is pink and polka dots or flowery pastels like I remember it used to be. Everything I've been crushing on is basically a mini interpretation of what I'd want to wear (naturally), so although I've been pretty good at being reasonable, I haven't been able to say no to everything.
I'm kind of in love with vintage baby clothes, too, which makes for even more temptation. While on vacation last weekend, I scooped up a sailor dress and sun suit that will be perfect attire for the summer heat. And, the other day, while browsing a shop for non-baby-related stuff, I stumbled upon the cutest stuffed animal and had to take her home with me. It totally reminded me of something my crafty grandma would have made, and it seems like a good way to sort of connect the generations.
We're also extremely lucky having friends and family with good taste who are equally eager to buy a cute girl outfit and gift it to us, or who have had sweet babies of their own to dress up. Everyone keeps reminding me how babies grow out of their clothes almost weekly, so between my inability to resist and the generosity of loved ones, I think we're pretty much set for the first 6 months at least. Let's just hope we really do end up having a girl!
