Hi guys! On the pictures you see a mini sneak peak of the baby crib's corner haha. And the mini outfit is from Jollyroom and is one of (way too) many outfits we've already gotten for baby boy. We kind of have a nursery corner in this apartment but since we're probably moving in to our new home before the baby arrives it's definitely not the final nursery so I don't know how much I'm gonna show you of this version.
I'm honestly too tired of the gender discussion to start getting fiery about it but I'll still write some thoughts for you. I've been getting so many questions lately about what I'm going to do to neutralize genders when it comes to my baby. Aka. pink & dolls are for girls, blue & cars are for boys etc - these things that aren't true. So to start with, I ordered almost all outfits for our Mini before we found out the gender. Which means I was completely neutral in that. What I discovered was still that there are SO LITTLE unisex clothing for children?! (Aka. Almost everything is pink, blue or just black - how lame?) But anyways, 80% of the stuff we got was baby blue since blue is my absolute favorite color and I wanted my baby to be dressed in different shades of blue no matter if it turned out to be a boy or a girl.
The funny thing is that when we then eventually found out we're having a boy, oh man, guess if I'm getting DM's about why I'm only gonna dress my boy in blue and if that isn't a bit stereotypical. And now my over all opinion on this gender question when it comes to babies and children is that it doesn't matter at all. What my baby wears shouldn't matter at all. So if he's dressed in blue most of the time since that's my favorite color I shouldn't get questions about why I'm not more liberal in this matter. And then if he's dressed in pink I shouldn't get questions about why he has "girly clothes". Blah. I'm actually over this whole subject before it has even started haha. I just strongly feel that colors are just colors, and my Mini gets to wear whatever he likes as soon as he can choose for himself. Which means, the day he can express his favorite colors and patterns HE is the one choosing his outfits, not me. My role is not to choose his clothes for him but to teach him that he (and everyone!) can wear whatever colors, patterns and types of clothes they want to.
Anyways, now it's about 100 days (!!) left until Mini arrives. It can be both earlier and later depending on how everything goes and how he's growing in there. But now it starts to feel super real since there's only 3 months left. Hope you all have a great Saturday! Love.
