As most of you know, we are expecting our fifth bundle of joy this September. And since the little doll baby is officially viable, I thought it was highly appropriate to share today!
Most of you already know the gender – we revealed it a while back and celebrated with a ton of silly string….
but we wanted to share the video where we propped up a cell phone and video’ed the actual news from the doctor. Sorry about any obnoxious screaming on my part. I was in shock.
As a mom of four boys, I could not imagine anything else….I blogged about my initial reaction and I gotta say….it’s been the most overwhelmingly positive and supportive response and I can’t thank you enough. I was shocked, excited, terrified and nervous and yes, those feelings are still lingering there….but for the most part, I simply can’t wait to meet her!!! September can’t come soon enough. I want to know what she looks like and what she acts like and all the cute little newborn things….will she be tongue tied? will she have lots of hair? will she have blue eyes like Jeremy, LJ and Weston or brown like me, William and Max? will she be active like Weston or smitten like LJ or stoic like Will or cuddly like Max? I can’t wait to see Jeremy with her! I simply CAN. NOT. WAIT.
We do have a name already and we are just waiting to make sure our family knows before we share it with the masses….so stay tuned for that!
And I’m getting super excited about getting all things BABY GIRL….aka bows, blankets, dresses and such. I definitely am a little bit of a tomboy when it comes to dressing myself (I have literally one pair of heels) and I think that I’ll be reusing some of the boy clothing and tweaking it to make it a little girlie….I totally think that a plaid shirt on a little girl with a denim skirt and little knee socks would be super adorable! But I need recommendations….ON ALL THE THINGS. My style for big kids and toddlers is like Janie & Jack or Mini Boden and I love some of the pieces of the Cat & Jack lineup. But I’d really love newborn suggestions and must-haves. I don’t mind spending money if it’s for a photoshoot or a piece we use all the time but I like a diverse wardrobe for kids (some play clothes, cute jammies, photo shoot outfits, etc.) and things that are must-haves for newborns. I heard good things about the DockATot. And I really like this hospital gown (I borrowed a friend’s for LJ’s birth and loved that I could look at those photos and instantly know it was LJ’s big arrival day!).
