In the meantime, I keep myself busy buying boy clothes. That's a new experience on my side of the family since my brother and I each had two girls. As much as I love my daughters, nieces and granddaughter, I'm so excited to find out how little boys think.
What is it about buying tiny clothes that's such fun? Is it hormonal, do you think? A nesting instinct for mothers and grandmas? Whatever it is, I'm taking advantage until he's big enough I can buy toy race cars. (Please let him love racing!)
With sleep sacks it wasn't much different to shop for a boy rather than a girl, except I could look for different colors.
The fun came with onesies and pants. I also bought some fabric to make a shirt for him and a matching skirt for his big sister, but I haven't finished those yet.
Do you enjoy the baby clothes department as much as I do? Whether you're shopping for a relative's or a friend's baby, I think maybe the promise of the future and life going on adds to the fun. What do you think?
