I'm not into pink and frills. I don't much like little baby headbands when they don't even have hair yet or soft pastels and babyish prints. What I can't get enough of are bright, vibrant fabrics from the 50s and 60s that are sprinkled in flowers etc. I also love stripes and spots, quirky handmade prints and natural fabrics (yikes and I've just realised right now that I'm turning into my own mother!). I realise that it's going to be quite some time before the kid will fit any of these things... like at least a year or two (or 4 or 5)... but that's not going to stop me from collecting anyway.
Truth be told I'm a little bit overwhelmed by all the little newborn clothes that they need. Despite being born in the middle of summer, I'm told that we need to stock up on all sorts of layers! I keep thinking that surely it must be too soon to start buying any of the 'sensible' essentials, but then again time is flying by and I'm sure that these last 4 months will be over before we know it. I would hate to be caught by surprise and not be prepared if a certain somebody makes an early grand entrance!
I know a lot of you are mama's. How did you decide what to get and when to get it?? Being that I am the oldest of 5 siblings I always thought that this would be the easy part, but I feel quite clueless!
