[another carter's one, too cheap and cute to pass up!]
so.freaking.cute.I have been extremely good at minimizing the dreaming of baby items. Which is very unlike me. I've tried to be reasonable...focus on the non-materialistic side of having a child (ie. loving little spud to pieces, how she will impact our routines, going camping together as a family, interacting the babe with the dogs, what joy a child will bring into our lives, etc.) But seriously. Now that I know spud is a girl... I can't stop thinking about all of the cute & simple clothing. I am even impressed that matt likes some of the things I have picked. I like the gender neutral, color neutral, non-kid-esq type of clothing, accessories, and decor. It's really fun. It's hard to be on a budget, but maybe that makes the searching even more fun. I have to 100% like an item to spend the money on it.
But I have no concept of how many onesies we need in each size or how many burp cloths would be appropriate to sew, or how many sweet little footed-elephant-PJs do we need? It kind of feels a lot like planning for our wedding though. We didn't have a ton of money to spend right before the wedding, but we could spend a little money over the months leading up to it for diy projects and such. So, once maternity leave hits I think I need to be at home and not spending money...but these months leading up to spud arrival I could be making some smart purchases...right?! Please?!
