You know the feeling when you've wanted something but were too slow and then and can't get it because it's not being sold anymore? But then you still manage to get a hold of it (or something jsut as good) and you almost feel proud of yourself?
(But right now the big one is full of MY stuff anyways; summer clothing and dresses I don't wear anymore but still do not want to get rid off* )
And don't go all "oh you're having a boy!" just because they're blue :)
As I said I wanted these before the baby already...
Otherwise I haven't really bought anything for The Baby yet, mostly because
1. It feels strange buying clothing for someone I haven't met
2. People will bring the baby lots of stuff anyway
3. Babies grow quite fast and this one will be born in summer so no need for a lot of size 52 items...
and most of all
4. All expecting mothers in Finland get a package with a lot of basic items for a newborn; bodies, tops, overalls, bonnets, lotions etc. It's pretty great!
Of course we'll need to get some other practical stuff like strollers, a bed etc. But while I know some people get all that halfway trough pregnancy already we haven't had the time nor hurry with it yet. But now with two months left and me off work I can start preparing in more practical ways.
However, I actually have some baby stuff to put in the boxes now - I bought two baby bodies as I almost felt obliged to get something and came across some cute prints.
You can never go wrong with anchors or monkeys. Monkeys!
*) Those I however am getting rid of can soon be found on my sales blog, I put some things up already. And, tomorrow -Sunday - K and I will be selling on Vanha's flea market from nine 'til three! Mostly plain stuff but I have some goodies along there too! Like these jackets here: 1,2,3 or this dress for example: 4 !
