We also went shopping the other day and picked up a few things for our baby. It is so amazing to look at some of these clothes and think that we will have a baby to fill them in just a few short months away. Brazilians here are still shocked everytime when we tell them we don't know the baby's sex. Most people here find out what they are going to have in order to buy things for either a boy or girl. It makes sense since many people are poor and baby things tend to cost three times more money then back home for the major things, such as cribs, highchairs, soothers, bottles and diapers. Clothes are a reasonable price but for Brazilians it is better knowing whether they need to get pink or blue. Travis and I are excited about the surprise aspect of this and found things that would work for either a boy or girl. It is a little weird buying for someone that isn't around yet but it was fun choosing something for our baby together. We even saw a special outfit that screams Brazil but we decided to wait on it as they had two outfits, one for a boy and one for a girl. I'm sure though as soon as our baby is born we will go back and buy it and stick a picture on our blog, it is just too adorable.
