It’s bordering on ridiculous how much stuff this little girl has already! After many, many shopping trips with my mom and friends and family buying for a girl – the baby storage bins are overflowing! (Okay, okay, so maybe I’ve contributed a little bit as well, but whatever!)
So a few of my favorite things…
From shopping with mom, which, I have to say went so much better than I thought it would! Mom and I almost never see eye to eye on my clothes, so I was worried about agreeing on baby clothes. Luckily, we both really like the same things – dresses, dresses, and sweet little dresses 🙂 Our biggest tiffs were over she wanting everything in pink and I was in pink overload. Oh well, I guess she has a grandmother’s right to overindulge in pink.
A sweet little sunsuit
With rosebuds (my mom is a sucker for anything with roses/rosebuds on it)
Pink ruffle-butt tights!
We found this great store in Wasilla called Today’s Mom (no website, unfortch.) They had amazing, amazing things and we might have gone a little crazy. If anyone is going to Alaska, it’s worth making a trip to this store – I just was so impressed with their maternity and baby selection.
They carried a lot of things by this lady Laura – her website is http://www.alaskakraftswithkare.com/. She makes great handmade things, like this flannel moose blanket that mom loved.
Grandma thought the puppies needed to give Poppy presents as well
This super sweet jacket is from Great-Granny Chris
The hood has a little bunny face on it!
Detail on the ribbon – so sweet!
For her Papaw 🙂
I couldn’t resist this smocked dress
With matching bloomers 🙂
My favorite, favorite, favorite children’s book
Not only is it a really awesome story, but the illustrations are raised in detail, which makes it really fun for little kids to read.
Plus, it’s just beautiful.
Like I could resist this! Although, to tell you the truth. This isn’t exactly true. She’s a stinkerbutt when it comes to her daddy. Last night, I was sitting in bed reading, and she was going crazy, my belly was jumping all over the place. As soon as I called him in to see, she stopped. Not once, but twice, the minute he would take his hand off my belly, she’d kick. She’s a stinker 🙂 So even though she moves all the time, he still hasn’t felt her!
First things I bought when I found out she was a girl 🙂
The start of Josh’s “daddy bag.” (Also from Krafts with Kare) A changing pad, blanket and burp cloth.
And to end with, my three favorite things:
My baby cup – a gift from my Aunt Janis. I’m busy trying to remove almost 30 years of tarnish 🙂
Probably the coolest thing…
Don’t worry, we don’t actually plan on plugging it in! I don’t trust electric goods from the 70’s!
But how can you resist this happy little Panda?!
Just look at all the benefits!
And my most favorite, favorite, favorite thing
One of my baby dresses 🙂 This has been on one of my dolls since I outgrew it and now, I can’t wait to put Poppy in it!
There are several pictures of me in this dress – I’ll have to track them down and do side by side pictures when Poppy is here in the dress 🙂
