Well It’s October 1, and we have two months and one week until Baby E’s due date. I guess it’s time to start buying her stuff.
I’ve had a really hard time with this, for a few reasons. Earlier it was because of my anxiety, I try to not prepare for certain things incase they do not happen. I know that sounds weird, and sort of morbid. I really don’t want to discuss it in depth, but for that reason I had not (until very recently) purchased a single thing for Baby E. Not a blanket, or a bib, not any booties, nothing. The other reason, which is plaguing me now, is our impending move. Why buy stuff that we are just going to have to move in a month or so anyway. I cant set anything up, when she wont have a room in this house. Why bother?
To be quite honest I’ve been a little down about the whole thing.
I guess my mom was a little concerned about me being unprepared, so she made me go out and buy some stuff.
And I wanted to buy this, it’s 40% off at Macys
I think it would make the cutest Christmas dress.
Paul thinks it looks like a burlap sack.
I’m a little afraid that my mom forced me to open a can of worms.
You know how some say when you are out drinking and you take your first pee you “break the seal” and you will pee every 5 minutes for the rest of the night?
I think I broke the shopping seal. I have not bought much more since that shopping trip last weekend. Mostly because the shopping here in MT is slim pickings. But my online carts at a few stores are HUGE. My Old Navy cart alone is pushing $200. And they just put out a 30% off coupon.
We’ll still likely wait on a crib and stroller until we have moved. And the carseat I need to research a bit more, but that will be very soon. I think we’ll get our pack n play (play pen) in the next week or so, just in case she comes early we’ll need somewhere for her to sleep.
