It’s a Girl!

We’re having a little girl! A LITTLE GIRL! Bring on the dresses, tights, pigtails and teenage hormonal rage! As you can see, I couldn’t help myself and bought this darling Imoga cross stitch dress for the little one on Gilt (they have a children’s section, sohelpmegod), but I PROMISE to keep my little girl clothing expenditures in check.


We are so incredibly thrilled to be given the chance to raise both a boy and a girl, and when we told Wito the exciting news, he clasped his hands together and exclaimed, “Oh, a girl! I’ve always wanted something soft to sleep with!” Cue heart explosion. He is going to be such a wonderful big brother.

Oh! And! We got the house and will be moving in three weeks. Hooray! There is much to do before we move in, so the remainder of January will be a bit crazy. D is spending his evenings and weekends at the new place, and it is going to be a race against time to get our changes complete before moving day. I’ve been trying to document the renovations with photos, though, so hopefully I can post some of the small improvements we are making to bring this 60s modern back to her original glory.

In the meantime, please feel free to bestow upon me your best baby girl-rearing advice. We’ve been solely about the penis ’round here for the past three years, so any and all advice is welcome!

    Girls really are divine – such a stark difference from boys (what little I’ve seen second-hand, as I have no boy(s) – YET)! So enjoy all the frou frou and fluff and sweetness and extra love. You’re in for a wonderful ride.

    Congrats Whoorl! Baby girls are SO FUN!

    Seriously… beware of Gilt’s Saturday sales that feature kid clothes. High end boy clothes are easy to resist, but GIRL CLOTHES! OMG, must have one of everything! Incidentally, I also bought that same Imoga dress for my little girl. So cute.

    Have fun!

    Congratulations! That little girl is sure to be one of the best dressed in California (and will probably grow to have the best hair, too!

    Congrats, Sarah. My only child is a girl (who is now 18). But when she was little, it was a lot of fun.

    Wito gets a sister.
