It's A Girl!

We've known for a while now.....since June 3rd to be exact.  After having not known the gender ahead of time with our last two (of three), we decided that this time we really wanted to know.  All of us. 

Only Hans complained the slightest bit.  He had been planning for a brother, you see.  But that only lasted a couple of minutes (thankfully) and he quickly joined the ranks of the rest of us who are just plain excited about this baby girl.

So preparations are officially underway.....room swapping and repainting and a wee bit of baby girl sewing!  (I made this dress in just a couple of days using the very simple McCall's 8574.) 

The sweet giraffe fabric was a gift from this gal, and the star and moon shelf was a barn sale find for $2.  It still needs a bit of polishing, but I think it will be a darling addition to this baby girl's room. 

So we're having fun here, and quite certain that there are few things better in life than prepaing for a new baby!

What a beautiful dress and nice to see that you're beginning to 'nest'. Funny...I had forgotten about that fabric...was just thinking what a neat pattern. Glad you found a use for it.

On a different note - hope you post the recipe for those foil-lined packets from your camping trip.

Just thinking - you should add the photos to Crafting for Girls group on flickr.
