9 more days!

OK, guys, nine more days and we will know if we are having a boy or a girl!! Oh I can't wait! I have the room pretty much set up with the baby bedding we used for Little Dude-it is cute blues/greens/yellows with safari animals-lions/zebras/hippos and random bears. I guess Target didn't realize bears aren't in safaris? At any rate, it is super cute and I am excited to use it again. But, guys, I did find THIS cute bedding; should we be having a girl.

I know, I know, I have been saying forever I specifically chose the bedding I did for Little Dude just so we could use it for all our children, as it is very gender neutral. However, the room is already a cute peach color, and while I was looking at a friends baby registry to pick out a gift, I ran across the peach and yellow bedding...with animals! So cute! I really wish I could just buy the blanket and dust ruffle, but sadly Babies R Us has me trapped in that you HAVE to buy the whole set to get any of it. Sigh.

So, yes, that is way to much money to spend when only two of the items I really need (because Little Dude is still using his blanket and sheets, I will need to buy a few sheets and find a blanket/make one for this baby) I was thinking I could get just a few of the room accessories, since it wont matter it it doesn't match perfectly, as all of it will have similar looking animals AND the parts that wont match (bumber, mobile) will be out of the crib as soon as the baby rolls over (for Little Dude is was around 3 months) I just really wish I could get the blanket-if I could just get that I would be so excited as I could get everything else to work color wise and the off colored stuff wouldnt be used for long anyhow. Sigh. I want it. Oh well, perhaps I will be having a boy and it wont matter. But if it is a girl......

Ha ha about the bears in a safari!!

Anyway, I'm super excited for you and if you are going to have a girl we'll all pool together and MAKE the girly bedding happen because you deserve it!

I just wanted to say that you are super cute :) I'm Suzanne and I work with Andrea. She raves about you all the time! Your blog is so organized and SMART! I think I love you! hahaha :)
I also fell in love with a Cocalo set from Babies R Us. I couldn't bring myself to spend $300 there so I just googled "Cocolo [item name]" and found ways to buy it seperately! There are many sites for this so you can bargain hunt or find the site you're most comfortable buying from.
I found a site to buy anything in your set seperately:

Super cute by the way! I had a baby girl back in September and I went for the Sugar Plum line, very girly :)

Suzanne again -
Okay, I wasn't really paying attention and at that site you have to buy the whole set to buy the seperate things, but you get my gist. Just try googling what you are looking for and you should be able to find the blankets/sheets seperate, or whatever else you need. I like ebay too, there are a lot of people that make custom pieces from the fabric or wall border that's really nice.
Take care!
