Flashback Friday. I really like the idea of going through old photos (although I admit I don't really have many from prior to 2004).
Any mama who finds out they are having a girl are usually delighted... have you seen the amazingly cute clothes they make for baby girls? While I honestly admit I wanted my first child to be a boy - my mom really wanted me to have a girl (my brother already had twin boys - so she was itching for a granddaughter). If memory serves me correctly my sister and I went shopping at the Children's Place outlet and we picked out this cute dress and matching hat. I really loved the pastel green color with pink accents - girly, but not "pink" girly - know what I mean? My family and friends all bought her so many gorgeous outfits - I just couldn't wait for her to wear them all!
My Little Bug Aaliyah was a fairly small baby and she didn't grow as quickly as her chubby wubby younger sister and brother did... so she was 6 months old before she started wearing size 3-6 months.
I was very excited to finally be able to put this dress on my Little Bug - and unfortunately my hopes for a happy picture were shot. She screamed and screamed (as she did almost every day, all day for MONTHS) - so I had to settle for the grumpy picture. I distinctly remember my hubster telling me that day, "You don't have a daughter. You have a doll."
