Shout it from the rooftops, we have a little man on the way.
You know we thought it was a girl. We were convinced! So to say we were surprised is an understatement. It's time to start thinking about boy things! Something tells me little man won't appreciate looking back at old pictures of him sleeping in a pink crib and pink clothes...so it looks like a sale of the old crib, and a purchase of a gender-neutral crib is in order. Who knows how many more we may have; we better prepare just in case! Also, BOY CLOTHES (question mark?) Or should it be BOY CLOTHES (exclamation!)? So far, I'm a bit underwhelmed by the boy clothing market. However, I was recently gifted some adorable newborn boy onesies with peanuts and elephants on them, so I know there is hope out there somewhere! Also, I'm preparing to rock the Celebrate The Boy archives.
Also, thoughts on sharing a room. Our plan so far is to have the kiddos share a room once Little Man moves out of our room. I'll be honest that it's a little bit selfish on my part...I really don't want to give up my sewing room! At the same time, I'm a big stickler for a sleeping baby. So what happens when one babe is fussing it up in the room? Then the other babe wakes up all cranky-pants too! Momma doesn't deal well at 2am when multiple babies are fussing. At the same time, I've heard lots of good things about sibling room-sharing. It builds life skills, or so my M.I.L. (mother-in-law) saw on the teevee. Mr. Tee's siblings shared rooms throughout the years, as did my sister and I. So there's the dilemma. To share or not to share? Or the real question: To give up sewing room, or not to give up sewing room?
So there are the current thoughts of the day. BOY! Clothes!/? Room? Input, please!
