Ok, so it's a little strange, particularly since I actually don't have any baby stash, but I have a small extra stocking hung up over the fire this year.

I did not buy this stocking, mind you...it was actually something my mom gave me last year as a creative gift-card holder (since it's so small, that's about the only thing that fits in there). I'd forgotten about it until we were putting up decorations last week, and as soon as I saw it, the first thing I thought was, "gosh, how cute would it be to have that hung up, representing our intention to grow our family?" Told DH, and he thought it was a little presumptuous, but I just couldn't help myself, and hung it up anyway. Not only that, but I was at target two days ago, pushing my cart past the baby section, and saw the cutest little white baby socks, nothing fancy, just so very very small...and I bought them and put them in that stocking! So, who knows, maybe it's bad luck, or could be good, but it is what it is.

Anyone else have a stocking for baby that only exists in your dreams?

That is so sweet. I don't have a stocking, but I've been looking for a stocking holder for next Xmas!

That's so cute! I didn't think of that. I know we have a little stocking but it's not hanging up. Hmmm maybe DH will get a little surprise when he comes home.. *runs to look for little stocking*

ETA: Baby stocking is officially up. I wonder what DH will say. Better make sure to take it down before having people over or they might be on to us!
