Perhaps a more accurate title for this would be, “Things I Am Trying to Love Thursday.” Because honestly? Girl stuff is just cuter. I would rather shop for Libbie than David any day. Luckily, we’ve been blessed with more hand-me-down clothes than little David could wear, at least in 0-6 months, so I’ve not done much shopping on that end.
We have bought a few things for our little son, and I can’t resist sharing them!
Libbie’s crib is something we got from a garage sale. It is drop-side, somewhat broken, and just in bad shape; so we decided to get a new crib for David. The espresso color just says “manly,” doesn’t it? I really like the set.
Mr. V and I found this bedding for $15 at a consignment sale. Woohoo! We both like it, and we’re planning on painting the bedroom the color of the blue dot.
OK, so this isn’t actually new. We bought it for Libbie. With real money. And she used it a handful of times. She was a total bouncy seat baby and had zero interest in the swing. Because I am a cheapskate and would like to get some money’s worth out of this thing, I really hope David will like to swing!
All boy clothes aren’t ugly, of course. I love the little polo shirts, sweater vests, khakis, and overalls. And I adore this cute onesie my mom and sister bought for me from Gymboree. We all know how I feel about Gymboree, right?
In all truthfulness, I am still scared about having a boy. I don’t have any brothers; I am afraid I know nothing about raising a son. So tell me the truth: how different is it?!
