Who doesn’t love new clothes? I know that it is a bit early (7 weeks) but I just bought my first maternity clothes this past week. Now after having a baby only 18 months ago, you would think that I would have a closet full of them, but I don’t. My lack of clothes shows the mindset that Matt and I were in just a year ago. Still reeling from the trauma of Levi’s birth, we were convinced that we wouldn’t have any more kids of our own. I gave most of it away to my best friend Lyndsey and my sister-in-law Lauren, as they were both having their second. And I definitely don’t want to get them back as they may be adding to their families in the future.
With only a few pieces in my closet and Matt and I deciding on a budget for new clothes, I decided to browse around online. Old Navy had some great stuff on clearance and I decided not to wait and possibly be paying full price when I actually need them. Even though I can’t wear them now, it is so much fun to have a box show up at the door. I ordered a sleeveless blouse, a long sleeve light-weight henley, and the ever popular little black dress (though it doesn’t look little by any means in a maternity size). I’m looking forward to having a BIG belly so that I fit into my new clothes!
By the way, I’m working on Levi’s story. For some reason I am finding it hard to gather my thoughts about those 5 weeks in the NICU and the last 18 months. Hopefully I will be posting it soon.
