LOVE thinking pink!

My whole life I knew I would be the mom of boys. Especially when I was trying to get pregnant, and I would imagine it working - I would imagine myself with a baby boy. Or twin boys. Or adopting a baby boy. I wanted to name him Jack, after my grandfather. I must admit, my heart sunk for a few moments when she said, "It's a girl!" I have had 6 people give me ultrasounds and tell me I am having a girl. A tech guessed that at 13 weeks, my OB confirmed that at 16 weeks, a (different) tech confirmed at 17 weeks, (yet another) tech confirmed at my peri appointment yesterday, and the peri himself again said, "yes, you are having a baby girl." I get it. I am having a girl.

My oh my, how my attitude has changed. I am going crazy with pink, polka dots, toile...you name it. I am so happy to be having a baby girl! Nothing to do with infertility - I mean everyone is thankful to be pregnant, I am just so beyond elated to be having a girl. How lucky am I? I can't imagine not being pregnant with a girl. I am so excited. So excited, in fact, that I ordered bedding.

I am going with the pink and brown thing. I don't care if it is trendy right now. I love it! My mom got me a brown with pink polka dots glider, and a chocolate brown ottoman. Beautiful! Should arrive in 6-8 weeks. Same with the bedding. I am now looking for a girlie chandelier and maybe a night stand. I am having so much fun with this.

I haven't been on your blog in a while, so CONGRATS on the girl! What a great attitude you have about something you thought you dreaded. =) The bedding is absolutely precious, and I think a nice, shiny pink chandelier would be perfect!

How pretty. I love your new bedding! Glad to see you've embraced being a girl Momma!
