With less than 4 1/2 weeks until our due date, we’re starting to get really excited for baby Jonathan’s debut. However, it seems that the closer we get, the more there is to get done.
A few nights ago I realized that if he happens to come early he might very well be coming home wrapped in a pink receiving blanket. Since, this is only our second baby and our first boy, all the baby necessities we have are pink and purple.
With our daughter we knew we’d be having a baby shower so we registered at a couple different stores. We purposefully registered for some gender neutral items so that we would be able to use them for the next baby no matter the gender. However, once people find out you’re having a little girl it is very hard to get them to pass up the pink for the green or yellow you registered for. So, almost all of our baby items are in various shades of pink and purple.
We have been generously given 3 large totes of boys’ clothes (thanks Christy!), but most of them are 3 months and up, so for now it looks as though we’ll be doing laundry every day to keep the few yellow and green outfits clean. No one will know if he wears pink at home, will they?
Edited to add: I just found 2 yellow & green receiving blankets and one of the receiving blankets you get from the hospital, so don’t worry, we won’t be bringing Jonathan home in pink. 🙂
