Omg! I ran in "Real quick" in search of a specific thing. And ran smack dab in to the baby section... how'd that happen? Anyhow I got the CUTEST outfits for lil lady! The prettiest lil sun dresses and even a sweat outfit for next fall. They are so cheap! And all carters stuff! I'm talking like some stuff priced at $42 for regular retail and Marshals was selling it for $12.99!

I mostly buy size 0-3 to start off, and only a few outfits of the newborn stuff since they do grown out of it super fast. I did get a few extra newborn this time size I'm supposed to be having a smaller baby, but we'll see.

I don't buy anything newborn. I have had all babies 8.5lb +. So I have bought a few 0-3 months, the summer stuff is 3-6. And the fall outfit I bought is 6-9. My babies are big and long so newborn clothing is cute but useless for us :)

I love sales like that! I've bought a lot of different things for my little miss too on sales. I love that about girl clothes--I can buy pretty much anything regardless of size because it's easy to layer/un-layer girl clothes. I got a ton of newborn stuff from my SIL because my niece is tiny and was in it for 2.5 months. Both my kids have been different in sizing so I don't know what to expect with her. My husband was a huge baby (9lbs at birth, long) but I was pretty small. Who knows!

I wish there was a marshals closer to me. :(
I do love that store though. We have Ross and tj maxx. Still can find some cute stuff.

I'm in this boat, too. My son was born in to a 0-3 and he was in a 3-6 by about a month old. I bought a few outfits for LO already, but I just got a whole storage bin of stuff from my sister that ranged from 0-3 to 12 months old. I have some "cute outfits", but most of the items are onesies and rompers, which are totally fine with me. I'm sure I'll get more clothes as time gets closer, but it's nice to have the basics. The nearest Marshal's is a ways away, but we do have a Ross that is fairly close by. I will probably hit both after she arrives so I can have more of a definite size to shoot for.

We do have a Carter's outlet and Gymboree fairly close, too....those two are dangerous for me.
