Yesterday afternoon hubbie was feeling tired and wanted to take a nap so Baby Girl and I headed out to do some baby shopping.
Here are a few reasons why I like shopping for Baby Girl pretty much more than anything:
-she doesn’t have certain colors that wash her out, things that don’t fit right, any weird preferences or wackass body image stuff going on- she looks great in everything and likes whatever she is wearing.
-she approaches clothes with that same excitement and awe that I get- she loves looking at textures and colors and styles just like I do.
-I love shopping for other people way more than I love shopping for myself. It makes me want to pee in my pants a little bit really thinking about what they would like, instead of picking out stuff for them that I like or want them to have, which is what most ppl do when they pick out gifts, whether they are aware of it or not.
ONWARD! TO THE CUTE OUTFITS!
Oh my God, I can’t believe I’m already buying 12 month and 18 month clothes! The time has gone by so fast. It’s weird to think that just 10 months ago I was telling myself I can’t do this, that I can’t be a mother, I can’t handle it…and now I really cannot imagine what life would be like without her.
I really try and not go in for the pink thing with Baby Girl’s clothes mostly because it gets annoying that EVERYTHING is pink and also because that’s generally what friends and family are going to buy for her anyway. I don’t mind putting her in green or grey and then having someone tell me what a beautiful BOY I have 🙂
The outfits from Norstrom Rack are my favorite. I love the onesies with stretchy bottoms because her shirt doesn’t ride up and the pants are easy to get on and off for diaper changing. Trust me, the frilly layered outfits with all kind of tights and what not look cute, but they are a pain in the ass to navigate. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
The outfit above was the bargain of the day. The shirt is so soft and light that she’ll be able to wear this in warmer weather with sandals also.
Love the little hot pink bow accent on this.
