I blew it!

Scarlet is already fitting into 6-12, 9 month and similarly labeled clothing. I can still squeeze her into a few 3-6 or 6 month outfits, but I'm pushing it most of the time. So yesterday I was going through some of her bigger clothes to see what sizes I have and I found like 5 six month outfits I had never pulled out! And some of them were so dang cute... I totally blew it. So I have squeezed her into one a day since. And then they've gone immediately into the "too fat for that" bin. At least baby girl #2 will have a few outfits that haven't been totally trashed.

My kid is watching the Baby Einstein video that is supposed to teach her sign language right now. She is enthralled. I have yet to show her any baby movies before, she is lovin it! There is little better in life than a baby who likes tv. Of course with the sign language ones I'm pretty sure they aren't so effective unless I am watching and learning the signs too... Oh well

Oh, and I'm totally buying new couches this weekend! I can't even tell you how excited I am. We have one small couch, and it's the only place to sit in the whole room. Jon bought it at DI before we were married, and it was a piece of crap then. Now it's a rotting, awful piece of crap. But who wants to buy new furniture for an apartment you don't really want that kind of commitment to? There's that little fear in my brain if I actually start buying stuff for it and convincing it that I really do like it enough to make it cute, the apartment might never let us go. So I've kept my distance.

So I found couches for like $300 and they are sweet. There are two couches and one of those long bench chair kinda things, I don't know what they are called but I really like them. They are a little worn which is perfect because then I won't feel the need to schlep them when we move to wherever home #2 will be. And when people come over, they can actually sit down. Maybe people will want to come over now...

It makes me so sad when I discover clothes that Elsie never wore or hardly got to wear. It's such a shame!

I think everyone has done that with their kids. I also get so sad when I discover clothes my kids didn't get to wear. For instance, last year I realized that I forgot to put Kaiya in this ADORABLE taffeta plaid Christmas dress from the Gap. I was a smidge devastated.
