to be quite honest, i wanted a boy. i love boys. i wanted my first to be a boy. i have four brothers. no sisters. grant has 4 brothers. no sisters. i've been wanting a little babe for a while and because of that.... i kind of have a collection of baby clothes. and let's just say, i have a little bit more boy clothes. or maybe a lot bit more. yesterday i boxed up anything boy that i had and i found myself wondering if baby girl could wear anything from the boy box. ha.
now when the ultrasound lady said it was a girl... i couldn't stop smiling and neither could grant. in fact he is pretty much loving the idea of coming home to "his girls" every day. :) and while i do get more and more excited every day... i'm still trying to figure out baby girls. i never even look in the girl sections! one thing i know for sure is that her room and wardrobe will not be looking like something off the set of legally blonde. do i sound like a mean mom? (great. now i'm already going to be self conscious about something before she even gets here) i'm not gonna say i hate the color pink, but almost. maybe it's just hot pink? while every baby section does carry WAY more girl stuff than boys, i can't ever find anything i like! which leads me to shop only at thrift stores. i love the old stuff and i always have. i do think that there are some adorable girl options in stores but i don't know. like i said, i'm still figuring it all out. anyone have some girl headbands they'd like to recommend?
the other day i was driving and just running errands and pink's song "raise your glass" came on the radio. naturally i turned up the volume and starting dancing/singing while driving. then this image of a little girl popped in my head. she was sitting behind me in her car seat and singing right along with pink and myself. i started smiling and then just knew that even if i dress her like a boy, we are gonna be best buds. i can't wait to meet her and i pray for her health every day.
those socks are here.
p.s. if you dress your daughter in pink or hot pink (because you are normal), i never think twice about it. ugh i probably shouldn't have written this post.
p.p.s on a totally random note... please watch this. it is so funny.
