Enough...

Ok, I really should stop shopping for the baby. Every time I buy something for her, I tell myself it'll be the last one, and then I'll stumble on something else and say the exact same thing. Like this kimono onesie that was on sale at Elephant Ears in Kerrytown. I lurve the awesome color and groovy print. Plus it'll be a cinch to wear because it literally wraps around her.

I'm beginning to think our little girl has too many clothes already- the little section of our closet that we set aside for her is practically bursting, what with the clothes her grandparents and aunts have bought her (and I *know* more baby shopping is in the works for her two excited aunts...), our Oliebollen score last month, and pieces here and there from my office shower and friends (like this adorable vintage linen smock from Dot). And that's the thing about having a girl- everything's so adorable that you want to buy them all. Ok, but I shall go on record here on the blog and vow to not buy anymore clothes for her... at least not till after the two more showers we have coming up and the state of our registries after... :)

You do realise Baby "Insert-Name-Here" will out-grow her baby clothes really fast, right? :)

Girls are so fun to dress up! I recently saw all the sweet tops, skirts, dresses etc. at a toddler's section in a shopping centre. They make me wanna have a girl next time. :p

p/s You're looking great! ;)

@Stella: I know! Which is why I really need to restrain myself... And I assuage my guilt a little by making sure I buy clothes of different sizes so she'll be able to wear them all over a year but still...

@Pao Yin: Thank you! I didn't know even know you read our blog!! And yes, girl clothes are just so fun!!

erm, from my experience, the only things we do not need to buy are clothes!! That's because usually people will give clothes as gifts, especially my mother-in-law. Think she has a fetish of buying children's clothes whenever she goes to the market :P.

Other than clothes, I think there are surely other CUTE CUTE things to buy for the little one ;). That will burst your piggy bank too, haha!
