27 weeks pregnantMonday, August 04, 2014
It's official. I'm finally excited that we'll be having a baby in about 3 months.WAIT. That didn't come out right. I think what I meant to say is that I've transitioned from being overwhelmed and not feeling prepared to getting excited about going shopping for baby things, frequenting the nursery at the end of the day (is it weird that while I'm at work, I daydream about going home and sitting in the nursery to de-stress?).
The game changer was when we took our little weekend vacation and my mom came out with bags upon bags of clothes for baby Pribs. ONE: It showed me that finding baby clothes at a decent price is possible and TWO: It's okay to get excited and go all out when it comes to preparing for baby.
Not only that, but I was able to pick through vintage clothes/toys/blankets that she had saved from childhood and my childhood. There are few things that make me giddy in life...some of those things include surprise diet cokes, Friday night dates to coffee shops, and anything vintage.
We came home from our vacation, dumped everything in the nursery and this was the result. But I didn't care about the mess (which is really impressive for me)
This baby is loved and people are excited about his arrival.
Baby Pribs, you are SO loved.
