One last thing for baby :)

I finally bought him his own coming home outfit Smile Even though I have plenty of boy clothes I like to get them all a new outfit to wear home from the hospital. I thought the whales from Carter's were cute today, so that's what we picked (I had all 3 kids with me).

Usually my kids wear sleepers home from the hospital, but I went with pants and the onesie, even though the cord stump will still be there. I'm sure I have some little socks and a hat that will match too.

So hard not to buy everything in the Carter's store....but I definitely don't need any more boy clothes!

I love the whales!! SO cute!

I'm addicted to Carter's (or OshKosh) especially when there is a sale and I have a coupon. I'll walk out with $300 worth of stuff for less than $70 usually. I'll be sad when DS outgrows their sizing.

I have that set!!!!! When we were in the US for our last trip I got a couple boy things from the Carters outlet. MAN I love Carters. If baby is a girl I will gift that set to someone. I hope I get to use it because it's CUTE!

I realized I bought NB size, even though I usually bring them home in 0-3 month because they are so big! Hopefully he won't be TOO big. I can usually get about 1-2 weeks in size NB if I am lucky. But I don't think this baby is quite as big as his brothers......hopefully.....I already washed it!

I think I bought NB too...thinking if it IS a boy I'll need stuff right away. DD was only 7lbs 4oz but she was a scheduled c-sec TOMORROW (aka 38w4d). This baby it probably going to be bigger. That said, DH was 7lbs 2oz and I was 7lbs 4oz so we weren't big babies.

Super cute!! I love Carter's too and went nuts there with my DD - pretty much 90% or more of her stuff under 2T is from there. Luckily I learned some self control when DS was born and try to avoid going in there Wink Saves me a lot of $ to just stay away! lol

I bought NB coming home outfit too but my DD was 6lbs 14oz @ 2 days overdue and DS1 was 7lbs 13oz @ 3 or 8 days overdue (depends on whose date you go by) so I don't have particularly big babies and both have worn NB size for quite some time.

We didn't have a Carters on the island when DD was little...but when I went to the US I hit it hard! When K was one or so a Carters opened an hour drive from me. ONE HOUR!!!!! I almost want a boy just for the shopping. Blum 3

I decided to pack a 0-3 month outfit too, that I bought for DS2, so it's in pretty good condition still. I am really hoping this baby is under 9 lbs though! We will see.....

Kia, Aidan was 5 pounds, 6 ounces, and could really only wear premie for a couple weeks... and mostly wore newborn anyway. I'm sure Em will be in newborn clothes in no time! Sophie was my biggest - 8 pounds, 4 ounces. She was still able to wear some newborn clothes for about a month
