There is something about baby girls that makes me want to shop! We found out yesterday that our newest precious is a girl. So, Maren (or Maryn or possibly Maeryn - feel free to vote in the comments) Abigail will be making her debut sometime in December (or very late November). Immediately after finding out, I was overcome by the nearly inescapable desire to shop. I wonder if I would have had the same impulse if it was a boy if there is something more boy related that I would have felt compelled to do.
With Brynna, we got girly things, don't get me wrong, we got lots of pink blankets and lacy bibs and beautiful little dresses. But our big things, we stuck with gender neutral because we didn't know what the following little ones would be. Now, we know, girl. This is the last, we've decided, so...
I want a pink bouncy seat and a big ole lavender diaper bag. I no longer need anything navy blue. Anything. It's kind of ridiculous. I want people to look at me and say, "Now there is a mom of some girls." I think I may be crazy.
I do feel sorry for my husband, though. Poor man is going to be the only man with a wife, two daughters, a little girl dog. Even the fish is a girl. Well, it might not be, but Brynna has decided it is and none of us are about to argue about it. Especially since we have no clue how to tell for sure.
Poor guy, he may never own anything without glitter again.
