I was wondering today what I would be like with a little baby girl. I was a tomyboy as a kid. I never wore pink. I hated bows in my hair. But as I see so many little baby girls around with big flowers and bows and headbands, hair pulled up into pigtails, flowing in frills of pink, would I, too, succumb to the adorability of it all?
A couple weeks back I was putting away some of Benjamin's clothes he's outgrown and wondering about each piece: could a little girl wear this? Is there a big difference between girl jeans and boy jeans for toddlers? Will people think my daughter is a boy if she's wearing a truck shirt? Will it bother me if they do?
I do love the combination of green and white with pink. There is something so fresh about it, and less "girly" than the traditional shades of pink and white alone. If I have a girl, I'd love to make a quilt for her crib out of those colours, just to enjoy them for a little bit after six years of blue.
The anticipation of not knowing is eating away at me! But in less than three months our new little baby will be here and then we'll know.
