Going home/or first picture outfits

Does anybody have their going home/first outfit picked out yet? The going home outfit is pretty special to us since we keep each child's outfit so that they have them when they are adults and ready to have a child. I cannot figure out what I want baby girl to come home in!

Re: Going home/or first picture outfits

DD came home in my coming-home outfit (and it was huge on both of us!). By that I mean, of course, the outfit that I came home from the hospital in as a baby and not as an adult lol. My mom sewed it, so it's special!

Considering this baby will (I hope!) be born at home, I think his first photos will be in a really cute cloth diaper.

I don't have anything fancy picked out yet. I do have a cute ducky outfit with matching hat that we might use though. For the first photo I'm planning on having her in nothing but her skin and a few with cloth diapers. Not sure who will take these photos but I was going to ask my friend since she's gotten into photography since her son was born 2 yrs ago.

Re: Going home/or first picture outfits

I bought a carters outfit for a boy and one for a girl. The boys is a little onesie/pants with frogs on the toes and matching froggy hat, the girls is a pink giraffe. Nothing fancy, but brand new for the baby(since all other clothes are hand me downs!)

I have like 4 boy outfits (because I cannot pick just 1) and 2 girl outfits but I am pretty sure what outfit I will baby in if it's a girl. The hard part is deciding what kind of bow I want to make for a girl.

Re: Going home/or first picture outfits

I saved DD's homecoming outfit, but since I only have one I can't use it again this time. So far I have some tiny preemie size sleepers that I was going to use if I can't find anything else. Tomorrow I have my 32 week growth scan so I am also stopping by the mall with gymboree and janie and jack to check out their layette lines in hopes of finding two matching preemie sized outfits!

Re: Going home/or first picture outfits

I just finished up this hat, which will be part of her keepsake box as well as for her newborn pics



And this will probably be one of her first outfits, since she will be home already.
