Sugar and spice

Everyone knows our news now. And I'm so glad. It wasn't that I was bursting to tell people, I just wanted to be able to talk about ideas and plans we had been thinking about. Like the bedding I like. Or the swing that is so frivilous but just.so.cute. Or the fact that I might like to try a co-sleeper this time around. It's just good to be able discuss things normally. After we finally spilled the beans, I kept feeling like I was saying too much.

So. We're having a girl! Her name will be Genevieve, and we will call her Evie (I'd tell you her middle name, but it's a family name with a unique spelling and I don't feel good about announcing it on the blog...if you know me well enough to know my first name, it's also going to be her middle name). We're all over the moon about it. Sweet Hubby is elated. He keeps talking about "our little girl" and about how we're going to have a daughter. He even bought her her first dress and shoes. She'll be wearing them home from the hospital. A couple times a day, Stephen will stop what he's doing to come over and tell me, "I just can't wait to have a baby sister." I can't keep myself away from the dresses and bows and tights and Mary Janes whenever we go to the store.

It's a whole new adventure for us. I just can't wait to meet our little girl.

I'm so excited for you! I love the bedding and I think it's so cute that little Genevieve already has her first dress and shoes to come home in.

How exciting to be able to fill your house with pink! We really enjoyed having our kids in a bassinet/co-sleeper. I was so sad when we packed it away this last time. If you don't get one at your baby shower, let me know and you can have ours (it has lace on it!).

It cracks me up to think of how many pairs of shoes your mother is going to buy this baby.

Love the bedding. And it seems to match her name, if that makes any sense at all. Yea for girls. I will tell you that I have only ever shopped for Butterfly at Target and it takes all the willpower in the world not to buy everything there. I just don't even look at other stores. :)

I also like the new background.

LOVE LOVE the name! It's one of the top ones on my girl list. And Evie is a great nickname.
