My parents were in the area yesterday, so we did a little lunch and shopping.
Baby bean clothes are so cute! I managed to keep my mom reined in pretty effectively, though she INSISTED that babies MUST have their very own ducky hooded towels with matching washcloths. Huh? Like there's something wrong with the towels and washcloths I already own? But I acquiesced. So as soon as the husband and I pick out the carseat / stroller system, and I get motivated to buy/knit some baby socks, beanies and a couple of cardigan sweaters, I think we're good to go with the baby essentials -- yay! One of my goals is to keep the influx of baby stuff to a minimum, so I'm not planning on having any showers -- I've put the kibosh on two very gracious offers so far -- as we'd much rather invite everyone over after the baby comes for an open house / come meet the Bean party. Doesn't that sound like more fun that playing shower games,... hhmmmm? :)
