A Few Girly Things

Kind of a scary picture to 'open' with, but I couldn't help myself.  

I don't know what it is about having babies, but, I can't seem to get into the whole 'clothes buying' thing until just before delivery.  Maybe I am superstitious.  Or in denial.  It's kind of an unsettling anticipation.  Exciting, but, unsettling.  Can I do this again?  Have I really thought about the significance of bringing another human being into the world enough?  What do I do with a girl?  Etc. Etc.
That said!  I got a package in the mail.  (Have I ever expressed how much much I really love packages?!  Regardless of whether I paid for it or not, I LOVE it.  It's like Christmas every time).


I finally decided it was time to get some girl clothes.  (Or maybe because there was a big sale).  Maybe that is another reason why I hesitated.  I think I'm a little afraid to jump in on the whole 'I'm having a girl' action.  Maybe I'm afraid I'll go crazy with it.  Maybe I'm afraid of coming off as one of those mothers that buys her daughter 'Princess' themed nonsense.  

But I digress.  Again.

I laid out all the clothes on the bed.  What a sobering sight.  (And a little bit giddy).  I am determined to embrace femininity gracefully!!  

And I saw this the other day and decided she must have one.  Or ten.

I even cleared out a space in our already-too-small-to-be-comfortable room, for the cradle.  Ah!!!  

Still not sure where I'm going to put the laundry basket.

'The Man's' aunt from back home put together a list of Chinese names for us to pick from as well.  We're getting closer to 'The Little Lady' having some form of identification.  Sweet!

That's all for now!

Lady Chan


  1. I love the green outfit the best, although those precious polka-dotted ones are so fun. Don't forget to ask Lady W for hand-me-downs!!!

  2. Yes, the green one is by far everyone's favorite. I like the polka-dot ones too! You'll have to help me convince 'The Man' though. He thought it was a strange choice.

  3. She's going to be SOOO cute! I've got Ashley hooked on necklaces! She loves them! I also love the green dress and sweater. I think I saw that when it was full price and couldn't justify buying it!
