I’m not sure how this happens (to my knowledge pregnancy is not contagious – unless I’ve missed something major…) but somehow roughly 64% of my friends and family circles are currently pregnant or recently post-partum.
These things tend to happen in waves.
Or so I’m told.
Of course, if like me, this is not your wave (and you’ll catch the next one) there’s still such fun to be had! Watching friends prepare nurseries, closets, and all things cute and cuddly has been both heartwarming (and overwhelming) in equal proportions!
While news of a little bun in the oven is generally cause for celebration, there’s something about being a first time official Auntie to a brand new baby niece that changes things… it’s called shopping people – and when it is for teeny, tiny baby girls, browsing is nearly as much fun as stocking up for yours truly – and definitely just as dangerous. I set out to put together a little new-niece package and quickly realized what has the potential to be a serious problem: my niece will have better style than myself. Which means I really need to up my game.
It’s true, from headbands to moccasins and mini-skinny jeans alike – I’m all in. And there’s no doubt that if it came in my size, I would have to seriously exercise the powers of restraint. Now I have a pint-sized excuse. Yes it’s always good to get a bit of info from mom (see how she feels about giant bows, florals, animals, and all shades of pink) but here are a few ways to totally spoil (and sweeten up) your little ones. For all of the future fashionistas out there, the world is your oyster.
And if you set some stuff aside for yourself,
I won’t judge…
