So, as most Mamas do at some point in their pregnancy, I have been thumbing through old photo albums and looking at pictures of myself as a baby.
It's kind of like window shopping. Just flipping through photos, gushing over how stinkin' adorable you were as a child (because you WERE, not because your opinion is tilted in ANY way because they're photos of you!) You get to pick out your favorite features from yours and your husband's little baby selves and imagine them combined into a completely edible little ensemble (ahem, I mean person) that you imagine your baby will look like.
I wonder if Hazel will have very little hair like Oliver did, or have a more average amount like Ry and I did. (I totally have teeny weeny hair clips packed in my hospital bag JUST in case!)
(This is me. And yes, it's hard to make a photo
from the 80s become suddenly clear and vibrant!)
I wonder if she'll have huge lips that will take her entire life to grow in to like me, or if she'll have lips like her daddy and Oliver - smaller on top and BIG on the bottom.
I can't imagine her hair and eyes being anything but blonde and blue. Oliver and Evie both had bright white hair - I think that's just how Ry and I make babies! (Plus, we were both toeheads when we were little).
(Me again. I think I was about 3 years old here. Mom, is that right?)
I'm just so excited to finally lay my eyes on this new little person.
Mmm... to meet eyes with my daughter! It will be like falling in love!
In the meantime, I am looking through old photo albums and window shopping. :)
And soon, we'll know!
12 days to go!
And, since we're on the topic of widow shopping, I thought I'd share with you a quick list of some of my current favorite, non-Etsy (yes, I DO branch out from time to time!) online kids stores. No discounts, no promos, just a good old fashioned resource list because I like you!
Kate Quinn Organics - they have an adorable pocket skirt on sale for $10 that I want for when Hazel is two. (Except that I'm not buying clothes that far in advance - so I'm just saying...)
Speesees fun, fair, organic clothes. Everything they sell looks
so soft and comfy. I especially like these bloomers.
