Favorite Link Friday - Special Edition

It's a special edition for Favorite Link Friday. Listen below to find out why...

video


We found out this morning and didn't tell anyone we were going in. Eloise and Lily came with us and had a great time watching. I had a really hard time going to the u/s place b/c I was worried that something was going to be wrong. Last time we were there I had found out I miscarried. I know that there is a baby growing strong in there, but the memories had surfaced and I had a bit of an emotional meltdown.

Once the u/s tech told us the sex, Eloise had a difficult time understanding that it wasn't a baby sister in there. So we went to Target and helped them pick out some jammies for their new little brother. I've never shopped in the boy section before, there really isn't that much to choose from. But we found some cute, plain jammies that help us get into the mode of buying blue. It goes without saying that Dave is over the moon excited about having a son.

So it's a BOY edition of FLF:

*I guess I'm going to have to start throwing parties with these type of action figures.

*The fabric on these cute totes makes me think that I might be able to fall in love with boy stuff.

*These cute swim trunks might get me excited about having a boy, but these types of clothes, don't. (sorry if I offend anyone. I'm a plain jane kind of girl)

*Not to let go of any girl stuff too soon, this is a cute website.

*I have always wanted to try this bread. I need to drown my sorrows in bread....kidding.

*Just for fun.

Have a great weekend!

Fun!! Congratulations you guys!

And to be honest... I enjoyed dressing Steele way more than I did dressing Adia as a baby. To me, it was hard to find stuff that was cute and simple and not all frou-frou for girls. My favorite places for boy clothes? Target and Janie and Jack. Extremes I know - but Target for everyday stuff and J&J for special stuff. Can't wait to meet little Sam!

Julie said...

AH - congrats!!! I couldn't hear the video. :( You'll find darling things to put him in and will never be able to imagine life without a little boy to get dirty and harrass his sisters!

Congratulations! I totally know what you mean about shopping for boy clothes. I have a baby girl after two boys, and a lot of times I still feel totally lost in the girls' department! I agree with Cutzi that Target is awesome for boy clothes. We just dress ours like little versions of Daddy. Fun.

Kate, you are going to LOVE having a little boy in the house. Just wait !
Sons are such a blessing.

And now you get the opportunity to shape him into a GOOD MAN.

I guess his name's not Ella now...

TRUST ME--there is way cute boy stuff NOW then there EVER way 10 years ago when Tyler was a baby!!! All there was, was ONE rack of those horrid dinosaur onesies verses 25 racks and racks of cute girls outfits. Old Navy is still my favorite staple stop for the boys. (and girls)

I'm excited for you guys! Boys are (duh) way different but SO great. Much less "rollercoaster" emotions. :)

Yea! Congratulations Kate! Take it from someone who knows, baby boys are so much fun. Super cuddly & sweet. :) I do most of my cute clothes shopping at Kohls or Fred Meyer. Everything's always on sale, & it's easy to find Carter's & Osh Kosh stuff that are fun outfits. :)

Jodi said...

I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!! I love little boys!

Aimee said...

YAY! I am thrilled that you found out! And did I hear the name Sam? If so- I LOVE it!!! Wow, wow, wow. Can't wait to see you with a little boy! I can help you figure him out, if you can help me figure Jersey out. Deal?

Jusbeth said...

Well, congratulations, and what a great boy name! ;) They are al so wonderful- don't worry- you'll be charmed by boy stuff you never would have dreamed of, once your boy is in it!

The Horne's said...

YAY!! Congrats, this was a super cute video!

Shelby said...

Congratulations Kate! I can sense a 'tone' in your post that I had when I initially found out. You will be shocked at how much you enjoy a little boy in the house. It is a different dynamic but you both will do awesome at it! I can't wait to watch and see! He will be such a blessing and you'll soon be thinking you couldn't imagine your life w/o your son in it! (: Love to you and your family! Congrats!

Kristine said...

Yeah! You are going to love, love, love having a boy! So excited for you! Your life just got filled with superman capes and cars :)

emily said...

congrats on a boy! i'm a bit jealous--i was hoping for two girls close together and the third a boy, but c'est la vie! it can be tough to find cute boy clothes--i still find myself perusing the little girls clothes, they're so darn cute!! fun links...i have to admit, i found out it was rude to blow your nose in japan while on the train out of tokyo, battling a horrendous head cold! someone clued me in and it was torture not to blow!
