I Got Over It

Remember when I said I was having a hard time buying things for Lily? There was something holding me back. Not so sure what, but every time I would pick up a little pink dress or something similarly girly, I would always put it right back on the rack/shelf. I couldn't commit for some reason.

Well, needless to say, I got over it. It was actually quite easy to tell you the truth.

And once I started buying pinky/girly/cutesy (now let's not go TOO far, right?!) things, I found it to be fun and exciting. "So this is what it's like to buy stuff for a girl." Hmmmm.

So, she now has plenty of clothes and a few pairs of shoes and some cute little teeny tiny itsy bitsy socks. I still want to get her some tights though, particularly those ones that look like they are little shoes sewn right in!

But when it came down to the necessities, we decided we would just use Jonah's car seat. It's black, tan, and red...not OVERLY boyish, but definitely not girly. And awhile ago, I didn't care. A car seat is a car seat right?

Nope, I was wrong. I have fallen in love with a cutesy/pinky/girly car seat, and I have to have it!

I mean, oh sweet goodness, I LOVE it. I really LOVE it. I have to have it.

Now, just convincing the hubby of it, well...that's a whole 'nother story!

I have to admit that I would feel the same way, Jen.

Thank goodness we're no longer 'producing'

Maybe you could get it as a promo from somewhere? I have the same problem, and I have just one girl. It's so easy to pick up cute little outfits and toys and stuff. Everything is just so precious!

My favorite Etsy shop for little girls is Baby Vagabond. It's a lady somewhat local to me, and she sews the most adorable little girl dresses and tops. I just love them. We have 4. :)

Do you think you could just buy a new pink cover for Jonah's? Might be something to look into, and it might be cheaper which the hubs would dig.

That's the exact carseat I want too! But...our babies r us is sold out of it because of the new 2009 line coming in.
