I meant to write this post about a week ago when we found out, but I've been so busy buying little pink clothes ,and things, and purgeing our house for the move it's insane! I need to scan the Ultrasound photos, and take a picture of the mini mountain of things Lorelai has already. Well, has here. My Mom is going a bit crazy buying things, and a good friend of hers has twin baby girls that have a lot of hand me downs, that she said I have to take.( Not that I'm protesting free hand me downs!) :) So she has a rather large mountain when all of her things are put together.
I found a new Pottery Barn Bumper at the thrift store for $4!! It is so pretty and it was such a good deal I scooped it up. The outside is white with pink, purple, yellow, blue dots that have stitching around them that looks like daises. The inside of it is bright pink. I got a couple of sheets at Target (Target has a coupon out right now for 5$ off circo bedding) so I think I ended up spending around $4 each on those. I need to find some cute pink blankies, but it might have to wait till after we move. We are over our weight limit. They give us 9000lbs for Hub's rank w/ dependants. So its not hard to go over when you don't buy junk furniture, and have one kid, and another on the way. I still have alot to go through... and I have no doubt that we will be under our limit by the time we move. But still not a good feeling. So that has put a damper on getting things for Lorelai until after the move.
Last weekend Hub and I went through all of Jack's old clothes and things. I cried alot. I think it was a combination of hormones and OMG My Baby Grew up so darn fast!! We are getting rid of everything except what Lorelai can use, and his important clothes. ( The outfit he came home in, and all of the premi things.) We were thinking about taking them to Once Upon a Child, but I'm not sure. They sorta gave the impression that they weren't going to give us too much ( not that I think they are worth a ton) and that they wouldn't take most of it. Its good, unstained, clean, baby things that have alot of life left. No one I know near by is having a boy, or I'd pass them along. ( Oh Kelli I wish you were near.... Boy would you be in for a surprise! lol) I don't know... maybe I'll take them over, and what ever they don't buy will go to the Salvation army around the corner. I just don't want to waste my time. Has anyone sold clothes to a place like that? Is it worth it?
Jack is doing great! He is kissing my belly and talking to his baby sister. Some times when I'm making him a meal, or getting something at the store he asks for some for his sister too. He is so sweet.
