Now that we know we're having a little boy, it's time to move on to the important things like CLOTHES.
I have shown great restraint the last few months, buying no clothes and just a few baby items, all of which barely fill a Target sack.
I'm sure any mother of boys will tell you that the clothing selection is much slimmer for boys than it is for girls, and I have experienced this when buying gifts for friends or family. Most things are splashed with sayings, tools, animals, trucks, sports, cars, or dinosaurs. And while I certainly don't mind a bit of that here or there (it would be almost impossible to avoid it altogether), I much prefer simpler, less-busy, even preppier clothing. There ARE cute boy clothes out there, they're just not found in abundance like girl clothes are.
I couldn't resist going out yesterday evening and picking up a few things for him.
I found these Carter's bodysuits at TJ Maxx.
A little Ralph Lauren romper similar to this, but not this exact color of green, at Ross.
I also got a little polo and short set at Ross, but can't find anything like it online.
I really like Carter's stuff for both boys and girls. It's soft and well made and it washes well too. Great stuff for lounging around the house and for daycare. I have my eye on a few things, such as this:
This is pretty cute. We might have to have this. Wish it came in baby blue though.
I'm also a big fan of Old Navy and Gap. I mean, this is just adorable.
And this? Love it.
So yeah, I am pretty excited to have a little boy to shop for now.
