My little man got some adorable gifts from his gramma and aunt (John’s mom and sister) for Christmas! (My mom’s fam doesn’t believe in buying for a baby until the shower and after birth….however….my aunt did hand me a packet of diapers when I went to visit…they were size 5! Apparently she got them as a free sample LOL So…when Embry’s 2yrs old he’ll be able to use em.)
How cute are these outfits? They’re size 3 months but they’re so tiny and cute I cannot stop looking at them. We decided to let them decorate the couch for a while instead of putting them away. LMAO. It’s a nice reminder that our little man will be here in a bit. John is amazed at how small they are. Wait till that big overgrown man sees his tiny newborn. He’s going to be shocked!!
They also got Embry some books! I love books and I plan on raising a reader. His library is growing!
You can’t tell all the titles from the pic I guess but the books are:
- Go Dog Go – John’s fave book when he was a little boy
- How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms – he wont need these lessons for a while
- How Do Dinosaurs Play with their Friends – does every kid go thru a dinosaur phase?
- Goodnight Moon – everyone loves this one!
- Runaway Bunny – it came w/ goodnight moon
- Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See
- Animals – by baby’s first library
My lil brother (who I cannot believe is going to be called UNCLE) is giving Embry his collection of Dr. Seuss books that he refused to let mommy give away.
I’d been holding out as best I can and just refusing to shop for the little nugget. In November I cracked and got this adorable scrapbook for baby’s first year.
And last week while I was losing my mind in Target’s clearance maternity section online (i’m talking $8 maternity sweaters people!) I happened to slide on over to the baby clearance and get a few items for lil Embry. I cannot wait until they arrive. And I’m psyched at the prices: Khakis for $1.60, Hoodies for $4.00…and more stuff that I forget right now but the most expensive item was $7!
I’ve put myself on a no spend diet until May 1 which will conveniently be after whatever
shower party we have for Embry, so I can guiltlessly shop for things I need after that point. One of my bosses gave me an Amex gift card and I so want to buy Embry some things with it… like…right now. How can a mom-to-be resist things like these?!
When did you start buying for baby? What was the first item you bought for your little one? Any recommendations on where to get inexpensive items for baby?
