Kind of a scary picture to 'open' with, but I couldn't help myself.
I don't know what it is about having babies, but, I can't seem to get into the whole 'clothes buying' thing until just before delivery. Maybe I am superstitious. Or in denial. It's kind of an unsettling anticipation. Exciting, but, unsettling. Can I do this again? Have I really thought about the significance of bringing another human being into the world enough? What do I do with a girl? Etc. Etc.
I finally decided it was time to get some girl clothes. (Or maybe because there was a big sale). Maybe that is another reason why I hesitated. I think I'm a little afraid to jump in on the whole 'I'm having a girl' action. Maybe I'm afraid I'll go crazy with it. Maybe I'm afraid of coming off as one of those mothers that buys her daughter 'Princess' themed nonsense.
I laid out all the clothes on the bed. What a sobering sight. (And a little bit giddy). I am determined to embrace femininity gracefully!!
And I saw this the other day and decided she must have one. Or ten.
I even cleared out a space in our already-too-small-to-be-comfortable room, for the cradle. Ah!!!
Still not sure where I'm going to put the laundry basket.
'The Man's' aunt from back home put together a list of Chinese names for us to pick from as well. We're getting closer to 'The Little Lady' having some form of identification. Sweet!
That's all for now!
