And the countdown begins.......




Baby day is coming up!  We are so excited that Baby Catherine will soon be here. Bless her heart, I know her mamma is SO ready...she's pretty uncomfortable, and ready to deliver a baby!

So this Peaches (my Grammie name) was on her way to the grocery store on Friday, and lo and behold, I saw a sign for a children's consignment sale going on at a church in our neighborhood.  Stop the presses...never mind that I had a list a mile long of things to do, I just HAD to drop in! Yes ma'am......there was baby bargaining to be done.  This main building was chockful of all things kiddo, from newborn  all the way up to preschool, I guess.  I only really stayed in the baby section and didn't venture much further.  I just wanted to show you the things that I did get.  It's so hard to know sizes and seasons, so I just picked a few from each size, trying to guess what size she would be in each season.  You will see that I have an affection for adorable sweaters and jackets....not to mention the three sweaters I bought her already in her closet!! Oh, well, wouldn't you have bought these, too?  She will be adorable in them, don't you think?  Oh, and I got all this for around $38!  I will surely plan to go to their Spring Sale!  You can go to JBFsale.com and see if there are JBF sales in your area.






So who's in for the Baby Pool? Catherine is due next Sunday on 10/10/10 and if she is late, will be induced on the 17th at the latest....I'll come up with a prize for the person closest to the actual birthday....maybe we should say a time, too since there might be some ties with the date....so what do YOU say???

Just ADORABLE!! It's just so much fun picking out all the little clothes. Can't wait to see some pictures when she gets here.

I love that blue coat with the roses. Adorable! jI love consignment sales!

Um, I'm gonna say 10/10/10, just because October 10th is when my Hubby proposed and because it's 3 ' 10's, which is cool. Um, 7:30 p.m.

Can't wait to see pictures of her.

What adorable clothes and all that for $38, wow. My granddaughter is due the 27th. They will be close. I am going to have to check out that website even though miss Leila has a lot of clothes waiting to be worn already. Her mama just can't stop plus lots of gifts.

Lisa said...

Really sweet baby things! I know you love shopping for a little girl! For her poor Mama's sake, I hope baby Catherine will show up a bit early...10-07 ish.:)

Denise said...

Such cute clothes you found!! And at a bargain price to boot. I know you're excited about your new arrival...I would be too. My guess is 10/12/10 at 10:12 pm

Love the Decor! said...

I am o excited for you!!!

Debbie said...

Oh my goodness what cute stuff!! You will be haunting that shop like Peaches the Ghost. (cute grammie name... I like it!)

I'm still standing on the 10th. Oh PLEASE take a minute to shout out when she does come. I just love baby announcements.

BTW... if I can get a pair of minutes, I'm planning to post about what I actually DID get done from the past month. Not all on the list. Sigh. But a great sidetrip.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Oh how I wish I would have come upon that sale. You chose perfectly. I love the little outfits, especially the little flowered jacket. I think your little Catherine will be born at 2:30am on October 13th. Hope I am right. Mostly, I am so excited for you because I know what you have to look forward to. Wishing you all the best.

Baby Catherine is one blessed little princess to have you for her "Peaches". That is the cutest Grammie name I have heard. Dare I ask how you got that name?
You got quite the bargains for 38.00. They all look new. Love the little jacket with the flowers.
I'm in for 10/10/10 because that is my birthday. Not much chance of that, but have to go for it. Let's say 3:00Am
I will be praying for her safe arrival whenever it is.

southerninspiration said...

The name "Peaches" actually came from my sweet daughter in law. She called her grandma Bitsy, so she decided she needed a fun grammie name for me. At the time, my son lived in Atlanta, so I guess that helped come up with a name. It stuck and it also alleviated the awkwardness that comes right after marriage and your daughter or son in law doesn't quite know what to call you. So, I am Peaches. All this time while I was volunteering with my sweet friends, the Howell quints, they have been calling me Peaches, so that sort of sealed the deal!!! :D
And Beverly, the 10th is also the b'day of my daughter in law's grandfather, so it would be good for it to be the 10th. AND my kids b'days are the 6th and the 8th!

Aw, what an exciting time for you and your whole family! I love the name Peaches! So fun!

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

Soooo exciting!! Yep, soon. There's nothing sweeter than a baby and the only thing better is being the grandma of the baby.I love all those baby clothes.

When our Hannah was born almost 3 years ago at first I thought, wow, how could I be a grandma. Well, that took me about half a second to fall in love. Just today she asked me if I would run to her birthday party. I said of course I would run to her party. Let's see, 8 hours from Oregon to California by car. Hmmm....thank goodness all she really wants is for me to say yes.

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

Love all the cute things you got. So cute! I know you are getting so excited. I am going to guess 10/12/10 at 10:00pm. Keep us posted on when she goes to the hospital. Love & blessings from NC!

cindy said...

That grandbaby is blessed to have you as her grandma.
I think sometimes grandmas give better advice and stay more patient than mom does!

10-10-10 would be nice , wouldn't it?

Miss Char said...

Well y'all already know how I feel about the bargains you got Peaches and I'm going to pick 10-12-10 at 9PM.

I can't wait to see pictures of the new arrival.

Corners of My Life said...

I predict 10/15, a lucky day for us. I can tell how much you are looking forward to her arrival.

Melanie said...

I love all the cute clothes and I love the deal that you got. I will say that the baby will arrive at October 18th at 9:52 pm! Good luck.

Ritkiss said...

How very exciting! I love all the cute outfits you got. I bet you can hardly wait to squeeze the cute cheeks on her.
I will guess 10/10/10 at 10:00, that would be amazing. She might even make the local news!

Southern Fried Gal said...

Awww - I know you are so excited! Love the name Peaches! The cupcake outfit is my favorite. Figures - it has food theme - ha! I say 10:10 am on 10/10/10 - how cool would that be?

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

OMG! That cupcake outfit is so cute that I want another baby right now!! ;)

Sue said...

What beautiful things you found for your new granddaughter. You will have so much fun, and with girls, the shopping opportunities never end!!

All of our babies were early - save the last that was born on his due date, so I will say the 9th at noon.

Robin said...

Everything you got is so cute!!! I just love consignment sales!

Hmmmmm, I'm going to say Catherine will make an appearance on 10/10/10, also around 2:32 pm.....the rush to the hospital will be on 10/09/10, but she will hang out until later the next afternoon! (haha)

BTW, LOVE the name "Catherine"....it's my middle name!
