It's too bad this child doesn't have a single pink thing to wear, huh?

This new baby will be the 13th grandchild on my side of the family, and the 6th girl. Three of these girls are too old to be useful by way of hand-me-down clothes, but I have nieces who are currently 3, 2.5, and 1 year old, so I am pretty much not going to have to buy this baby a damn thing.

Seriously, not a thing.

This is not even all of them

And that is not even all of them. You can't see the two more giant Ziploc bags out of the shot on the right nor the complete load of laundry I had already washed. Do any of you need any tiny pink clothes? Because I HAVE EXTRA.

In other news, I am 36 weeks pregnant today, and I still don't want to talk about it. I will talk about it soon on The Bump, but for now, all you get is this:

pregnant
Forced smile

In other other news, my friend came to visit me today and we all went to the park.

This is also a forced smile, but is far cuter

And while we were there, they turned on the sprinklers for the season! Score! And THEN we found a caterpillar! It was AWESOME.

We finished up with ice cream and a nap, but the best part for me was when it was time to go, Jack put the caterpillar back down where he found him and then turned around to wave goodbye. Twice.

We have an overabundance of hand-me-downs too. A good problem to have really; it let's us save our clothes buying for really special occasions, which is fun.

You look fantastic, by the way. I never would have guessed 36 weeks. Hang in there!

I love hand-me-downs. I have bought a few things for my daughter because she has an abnormally large head for her body (making some of the shirts unusable), but at least this way I can look for cute things I like and not have to worry AS MUCH about cost.

Hand in there - you are almost at the finish line!

I love the second-to-last picture, with that Expression.

I also love your couch. OMG, do we have the same couch but in different colors? Because that looks just like my couch. And have you perhaps even mentioned this very thing? Because if you have, I have forgotten all about it and this is a fresh new discovery!

Swistle said...

Oh, wait: your couch has 3 cushions across, and mine has 2. Still! Very similar furniture!

Poor deprived second child!
Hope you have a happy coast to the finish line.
