Indecisiveness is not a word that describes me well. I am a decision maker. Typically, a fast one. I know what I want and how I want it, most of the time, and I make no qualms about moving forward(or patiently waiting) until I find exactly what it is that I’m looking for.
Until choosing Mabel’s coming home outfit.
I opened up the discussion up on my Facebook page and got a huge variety of results. Everyone had a different opinion on what the little miss should come home in! And quite honestly, so did I!
I knew that I wanted something girly and sweet, it had to be size newborn, and I wanted it to be footless so that she could wear her new Freshly Picked Crib Moccasins with it. But that was about as far as I got.
And, since you’re here reading already, let’s go ahead and get really sentimental for a second.
I know we’re just talking about an outfit that she is going to wear for about 1 hour. In the hospital, the short drive home, and then once we get back.
And, usually? I’m all about being practical. Traditional Courtney would say, toss her in a sleeper that is cheap and comfy and call it a day. Stop thinking about it so much. But, for some reason, out of everything that I’ve been picking and choosing for her, and saving and planning and putting together, this outfit has been the one thing that I just can’t seem to shake. It gets me all emotional just thinking about it and I just want it to be so special and perfect and beautiful- just like I know she is going to be.
Because I mean, SHE IS COMING HOME PEOPLE. My second little girl. The one we’ve all been praying for for YEARS to arrive. It’s finally happening and while it is silly and superfluous and I’m hormonal and yadda yadda, this makes me really excited and happy and after a super long search, I finally stumbled upon it.
The outfit that made me stop and say, that’s the one I want her to wear. And I don’t care how frilly or dressy it is. I can see it on her already. I can see it hanging in a memory box for her to keep for always. I can see her wearing it to church. I can see the pictures we will take with her wearing it.
I mean. FOR THE LOVE. I couldn’t have any more heart eyes for this sweet little ensemble. The dress came with a little sweater in case she needs it(Mama needs her air conditioning!), the cutest little ruffle butt tights, and paired with her moccs and Sadie Sky bow? I would say it’s too much, but really, I think it’s just right.
What did your baby wear home from the hospital?
