21 Weeks 5 Days

Thanks for your kind words about my conflicting mother thoughts.

It’s complicated and I am trying to figure it all out, but, your comments are a huge huge help because they let me know that I am not alone (or a very bad person for thinking all these things).

Today we brought the little Girl and Boy their very first clothes.

We don’t plan on buying tonnes of new born clothes, just a few onsies (mostly on Mr. Duck’s insistence).They came in these multipacks of 5 each, so now if the babies are born earlier they wont be naked.

And these 2 sleepers which are just adorable:

The clothes are sitting on the newly painted stylin’ desk that we are going to convert into a changing station:

And finally the once bepto-bismal pink dresser that is now a lovely sand – just have to get those cute little animal knobs:

    Cute cute!! I am having two boys and I already have a son, so I’m not really investing in much. But my son was born enormous (9 lbs 14 oz) so he was never in newborn clothes, so I did get a couple of cute little sleepers. I am soooooooooo excited to put my two little munchkins in them. This is the fun part about being preggo with twins! πŸ˜€

    Very creative and super cute Duck! It’s so fun to get ready and start preparing and very cool you are refurnished and reusing old furniture. A good step to reducing your carbon footprint πŸ™‚

    I love the blue desk – it is going to be totally perfect!

    Love the newly painted items – the animal knobs will be so cute!

    I actually have both of those cute sleepers in the picture, and many of the onesies. What my sisters-in-laws have been doing is packing up clothes, classified as newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months etc. (and girl or boy) and they pass it along – then it gets passed along again for the next baby. Please drop by my place – you can pick up some newborn outfits and soon enough 0-3 months outfits, if you’d like!! No worries if some of the items get stained – you can just gather up what stays clean and I’ll pass it along to the next baby (my sister-in-law and friend are preggo πŸ™‚ In particular, I have a couple matching girl-boy outfits, so you’ll have fun with those.

    I have a few of those onesies!

    I didn’t plan on buying any newborn clothes, and didn’t before I had K. She was 7 pounds, but the 0-3 months stuff was huge. She is still in most of the newborn stuff at 4 weeks. Your twins will likely be small, maybe even smaller than K. They may get a bit of wear out of the newborn stuff.

    Oh how exciting Duck! Their first little clothes… DId I ever tell you about my mini meltdown when I brought Brielle home? Cause she was only 5 lbs 8 oz at the time…the newborn clothes that i had bought her didn’t fit!!! So I had to send my Mom out to get me a couple preemie outfits that only fit her for 1 week or so. It’s SO stranges looking at those little outfits now….super hard to believe she was ever that small!!

    I think the one thing I was most excited to buy was clothes. I don’t know why – I think I had an easier time picturing a baby in clothes as opposed to a crib or a stroller.

    I love the desk – very cool idea!
