we had a vote.

I don't know about anyone else, but the baby's going home outfit is really important to me. I really cherish picking one out. Ever since I had Parker, it's one of my favorite things to do in getting ready for baby. 

Each time I pull out the newborn baby (girl or boy) clothes, I love to tell the kiddos who came home in what. It’s pretty heartwarming to see how tiny (even though all my babies have been around 8 lbs or a tad bit over 9 lbs) they once were. The outfit has to be just right and everything I want it to be. It’s just one of those things for me. 

With baby #11 due in February, I’ve had a hard time finding “THE OUTFIT” mostly because so many things for newborns at this time of year are winter or Christmas themed. I’ve been searching and waiting for the Valentine/Spring/Fresh looking baby outfits to come out. “THE BLANKET” was easier and since the beginning, I've had two favorites. 

SO, last night after dinner, with everything having arrived via UPS over the last couple weeks and with the help of Etsy, Amazon and Nordstroms, and while everyone was still at the dinner table, we voted. Voted on my top four choices. I needed help. And with ten (Daddy makes eleven) opinions, one of the outfits won! 

I cannot wait to pack that hospital bag. But the pain of delivery? Ugh, not too excited about that part. Regardless, our new little one will be here soon. Counting the weeks and days.
