A little over 22 weeks and I am in full on baby shopping mode. We secured our stroller, the crib and changing table are on their way courtesy of the best Grandma ever*, and the nursery is already in the early stages of design, albeit in my head.
Baby boy already has enough newborn outfits to get him through a rotation of 5 daily outfit changes, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to snatch up more itty bitty outfits for my son. Although I find myself in unfamiliar territory, picking out the wardrobe staples for this currently kicking, soon to be bouncing off the walls baby boy, I am surprised to find that I am loving the process just as much as if I were buying ruffled dresses, hot pink bows, bloomers and trunk loads of pretty girlie things.
I've learned to shop off season and the clearance sections to score a ton of adorable baby apparel at up to 75% off. A few of my favorite stops have been American Apparel where I picked up a few unisex baby basics before the ultrasound revealed our little man's family jewels, H&M, the Gap, and the Children's Place where I've found complete looks that will make our boy the preppiest kid on the block.
