I Have a Problem

I guess the first step to fixing a problem is to admit that you have one...right? My problem is that I can't resist buying clothes for Bailey. I just can't help myself, but I think you'll agree that I made the right decision when you see some of these outfits. I realized that Bailey probably has more clothes than the average baby a couple of months ago. As I was boxing up her clothes that didn't fit her, so I went to Target to buy a new bin. I bought my usual sized bin to match the other ones because who wants to have unmatching bins in your garage? When I got home, I began to pack up her small clothes. Once the bin was full, I still had more clothes to pack. The even more startling fact is that I already have another basketful ready to be packed away today! My addiction is dressing up my daughter like the cutest little doll you've ever seen. My only hope is that our next one (not that there's another one anytime soon) is a girl so I can get some good use out of these clothes.
Last week we went to the mall to spend our thrilling Friday evening. I had a coupon and I wanted a corndog, so off the the mall we went. We did some shopping first and when we were finished I wasn't sure what had happened. There were some amazing deals at Children's Place--dresses that I was drooling over two months ago for $30 were now only $10. I can't pass on a deal like that! Then I just had to use my coupon at Gymboree because that was the point of the trip. After being scammed into spending enough money to get some Gymbucks, I realized that I had probably spent more than I had planned. But I'm planning ahead with my purchases and buying big sizes, so really I'm saving money in the long run :)
So here is one of the most adorable outfits I bought. I bought it in honor of the Kentucky Derby and all of the ladies and their big hats. It's so cute! I know that some of the pictures look like it's an old lady/farmer hat, but really it's quite stylish.

If you look closely at this picture, you can see her fang that's coming in on her upper left side. We always knew she was part vampire; I guess that's what happens when your mom reads too many Twilight books when you're little.

It looks like she's walking in this one, but she's not. She just stands up all day and takes one, maybe two tiny steps and then sits down.

This is a classic Bailey pose: the mini smile! I'm also in love with making the "Minnie Mouse" style bow that sits right up on top of her head.

This picture is nothing fabulous, but Toni says I need to put more pictures of Bailey and somebody else up. So this one's for my sister!

SOOOO CUTE!!! I am now at the point that I have stopped buying EVERYTHING I see for Ryan :) But I want another little boy (not any time soon :)) so that I can use up all of Ryan's cute clothes again!!!

Anyway - the hat and matching shirt are so freaking cute that I cannot get over it!!!

Kaci! Adorable and totally worth it! That hat is to die for. And don't kid yourself. Even if you have another girl, there are going to be so many cute new styles that you'll have to buy a whole other bin worth of clothes!

Ha ha, that's funny. I've been looking at baby girl clothes (it's not for me, it's for Krista who's having a baby girl) and they are so cute!! I totally want to buy all those cute little outfits and I don't even have a baby! I think I'll be in trouble when we do have kids :)
