More Pink

Tomorrow morning (oh, so early) Camille and I leave for a weekend in Utah to meet the new niece, Miss Eliza Jean.  Ever since finding out that a niece would be arriving I have purposely been avoiding the wee little clothing sections.  Primarily to save my bank account.  Because I've only had nephews and, let's face it, boys are boring to shop for, clothes-wise.  It's nothing but stripes and teddy bears and fire trucks and sports themes. During the colder months you can buy sweater vests but other than that, it's a dud.  But little girls have so many pink ruffly things and I knew that if I wandered into that territory I would buy every cute frilly item I saw.  So I stayed away, until today, when I found myself in Target clutching pink rompers in both hands.  Who's genius idea was it to put babies in rompers?  I need to find out so I can shake their hand.  I nearly died from the cuteness.  Hooray for the Niece!

Oh - girls are soooo much fun to dress, and re-dress, and then just dress up again. They are like little dollies that coo and squirm. I'm sure boys are fun, too, but they can't wear ruffle bums near as well as a little girl can. And what is better than a good ruffle bum?

With a boy and a girl (LOVE them both equally, of course) I have to agree girls are WAY more fun to dress. Yeah for rompers!

I am now expecting my third boy. Whenever someone I know has a baby girl I go straight to the frilly girl clothes and buy something pink because I'm so burnt out on little boy clothes. I do like the little tiny boy overalls sets and warm-up suits. But yes, the sports themes and endless blue teddy bears get a bit tired. Congrats on your new niece!

I would call a special holiday and throw a parade for a designer that could move beyond t-shirts and polos for boys. I can only own so many stripped polos for Nathan. I have my bitter moments when I get really mad that I can't buy the cute girl clothes. And it seems that most of my friends in the last three years have had boys.
