I bought the girl some clothes.
So much for my "not buying anything until 30 weeks" rule I set for myself. I'm so superstitious about buying things for a baby that hasn't arrived yet. Mostly because past experience of having to sort through and give away clothes and baby gear that belonged to a baby that didn't come home.
Talk about sucking big time. That experience is up there amongst my all time suckiest situations. (yes, suckiest is a word, autocorrect!).
They say time makes you forget. I'll tell you what. That's a lie.
Time doesn't make you forget. All it does is let hope creep back in.
So, that's what is going on here with this purchase. I'm letting HOPE back in. Hope that this little girl comes into the world just like her big brother did. Planned and on time...and most of all healthy enough to come home and be ours to raise and watch grow into this dress and these shoes.
