I can’t believe it. In 12 weeks, I’ll have a baby girl. I’ve been so, so, so busy lately that I am barely prepared for this baby, but you always pull it together in time, right? I hope so. There’s not a whole lot that we need, but I did realize recently that we should probably buy her some clothes!

But I do want to figure out what kind of clothing I feel comfortable with until she can choose her own, the same way I did for my son.
