I never imagined I would get so into decorating and all-things-baby, but it's all I think about and it's the most fun I've ever had. I guess I didn't realize how much I wanted a girl!!! What a blessing!
We picked out our nursery furniture set on Saturday and have to wait 7-10 days for it to be delivered!! Ugh...I am so excited to see the pieces in her room! We also bought her crib bedding set which is also taking forever to ship!! I know how impatient I sound and that must seem silly since we still have 19 weeks before she is suppose to arrive, but I am just so eager to get her room all set up so I can just sit there and admirer it. I told you I'm completely obsessed. I suppose it has a lot to do with the fact that it took us SO LONG to get here. All that time wanting to get to this point and never being sure if it would actually happen. Well, it is happening, so I am livin' it up as best I can!!!
(Of course I'll post pictures of the finished nursery when every eventually arrives!)
In the mean time I've been filling up my baby obsession with clothes shopping. I'm not buying that much, but I certainly am looking at every baby girl outfit in sight and buying the ones I can't resist!! I was at the mall yesterday looking in every baby store trying to keep my eye out for a very special dress. I wanted to find a tiny dress that was really well made and timeless. Something I can give to my daughter in years to come and tell her it was the first dress I ever bought for her. I went in the store, Janie and Jack, and found EXACTLY what I was looking for!! Blue velvet dress and bloomers, with embroidered pink roses in size 3-6 months. I figure she'll be wearing it this Thanksgiving! (I promise that this dress is MUCH prettier in person...photos just don't do it justice!)
I have looked at it about a thousand times since I brought it home. I just imagine it filled with our darling new baby and it blows my mind. I can hardly believe that we'll have our first child this summer. And that she'll be wearing this dress at Thanksgiving. Last year at Thanksgiving we were in our 2 week wait after IVF #2 and I hoped against all hope that this would be our future and now here we are living that dream....Amazing!!!
