Our First Baby Purchases

HELLO SECOND TRIMESTER!!! I have never been so relieved to have 12 weeks pass by.

Yesterday, I shared the gifts we’ve received for Smudge. Today, I want to show you the things we’ve bought for the baby. It’s so hard to pass things up when they’re so freaking adorable! There aren’t very many gender-generic clothing items, though, so I’ve bought what I could and now have to wait until we find out what Smudge is to do the bulk of my shopping.

The first things we bought were two onesies and the book “Goodnight Moon” on the night of our positive hpt. I know that was super early, but Joe and I always said that the first things we would buy would be onesies, and we just couldn’t help ourselves.

And, I couldn’t pass up the Braves onesie and t-shirt I found. Now Smudge will really fit in with Mommy and Daddy. Mommy and Smudge can hit the games in their matching Francoeur shirts.

For the night games, we have a sleeper that says “Daddy, is it game time yet?”, and I also found a super cute onesie that our moms will love.

About a month ago, Belk had Christmas onesies and sleepers on sale for like $2 each, so I couldn’t pass that up. The sleeper says “Baby’s First Christmas” and the onesie says “Are these people really my relatives?”

And the answer …

I found a super cute duckie sleeper (seriously, check out the footies! too cute!) and a giraffe onesie. The backside is my favorite part.

And, we picked up a couple more books for Smudge. We still have many more books to buy!


I’ve put my shopping on hold until we find out what the sex is. It really hasn’t been too hard since pretty much everything else is gender specific. Three more weeks to go (hopefully!)!
