I haven't had any dreams of the delivery with this little girl...until last night. In this dream, I went into labor at home, delayed going to the hospital too long, and delivered my own baby in the bathroom (very little pain and gore was involved- if only that part could be true). The big surprise was the little girl wasn't...she was a little boy! I wasn't sad about that, until the realization hit that I gave away my boy stuff and have been spending time and money collecting girl things. Oh no! He was beautiful, though, with tons of dark hair (obviously a fictitious dream), but he also had a club foot and a couple of other problems. I woke up with the overwhelming desire to go to the bathroom (no surprise there) and had to feel my basketball belly to assure myself it really was just a dream. Quite the scare.
With our ultrasound, the tech was VERY sure it was a girl, and believe me, it was quite a different view than it was with my other three. BUT- you hear of it happening. All this excitement and hype and instead of pink, out comes blue!! Despite the shock, I know we'd love a little boy as much as we would this little girl. I'm just hoping the shock doesn't happen!
In speaking of all things pink, I've been a little stressed lately. Anxiety has seem to set in. I'm not positive if it is because I'm having a girl (something I am NOT well versed in), because I am having #4 and it will be my last, or because I simply understand what having another baby in the house means. To combat this anxiety, I've been trying to do fun preparations. My sweet sisters are letting me borrow some of their baby girl things so I've been washing and putting the clothes away, darling friends threw me a shower (can I just say it was belly-shaking fun!!!) and I have been trying to be a little crafty and attempt to make little girl things.
Over Christmas, my sisters put me onto "princess socks". These are plain little crew socks all dolled up with beads. So easy and so cute!
(The following picture are not of my creations...camera is still on the fritz)
I've also tried my hand at making some felt flower clips to put on a headband for little girl. Kit is of the opinion they are WAY too large (maybe her head would tip to the side just a little).
Maybe I'll have to try some of a different variety...
I want to try some of these fabric flowers, so cute!!!
Are there any other fun crafts out there I can attempt without too much skill? The craft bug (nesting instinct?-although I'm not too inspired to deep clean my house) has set in!
