Oh my WORD! I was so very happy to find these little gems in my mailbox this week! I ordered them a couple of weeks ago and had almost forgotten about them when they showed up, making my day (it doesn't take much for me, obviously)! I ordered them from the Carlie Anna Boutique on Etsy, which has so many cute options and they were a great price, too, just $5.99. I'm sure before all is said and done, I will have ordered more, even though I know she's just going to throw up on them, they're just so cute. It's now my new goal to learn to make these myself. Then there's these little gems...
This little hand appliqued layette gown is also on Etsy at Mildred and Madge. I've been on the hunt for some cute, personalized "coming home" outfits for bringing Caroline home from the hospital. I know it's early to shop for them, but I don't care, I want to find the perfect one for our baby.
This one I am going to have to order for sure! I love the pink and green color combination and that it's girly without being over the top. Another Etsy find at the FroggyTales Designs Boutique. Now, just need to find a bow or hat to go with this one!
And finally, this one I love because it's pink, but I think I would just want a solid color fabric for the lettering. The polka dots are very cute, just not my preference. Again, Etsy. TutuHairbow Boutique carries these.
As much as I do love to monogram things, I'm trying not to go overboard with it in case we have another girl...don't want to have to name her Caroline, too just to re-use things ;) So far, I've only done the monogrammed burp cloths pictured above, a receiving blanket and a sweet little pink hat. I'm sure it won't be the last of it, but I have to find my balance between personalizing things for her and going nuts with it!
On another note, we did have our 20 week check up today, which was relatively quick and painless. We got to see Caroline on another ultrasound where we found out that she is perfectly healthy (praise God) and also, that she is currently breech and that the placenta is anterior, which they assured me was normal and nothing to be concerned about. It did make her harder to see on the ultrasound, though, especially in conjunction with the fact that she is a serious wiggle worm! Every time the tech got ready to take a still image of her for us, she'd move! But we were able to see what the tech told us was her smiling. It definately looked like she was grinning for us. To see that her heart, limbs, brain and organs are all fully functioning and where they are suppossed to be is such a relief. It's amazing how quickly you turn into panic mode once finding out you're pregnant! She currently weighs 12 ounces and has all the important things where they belong and in working order. What more could a mama-to-be ask for?
