Thank heaven for little girls!
We were out of town over the weekend, accompanying the MYF to Gatlinburg, TN, on the annual ski/snowboarding trip. Since I don’t partake in either, I spent most of the weekend perusing outlets and shops for cute stuff for Lily Kate. I got some adorable things, which I will post pictures of soon. I am gathering quite a little collection, but since I have no idea how old she will be, or what size she will wear, I am buying 12-18 months or older, to be sure they will fit, at some point. Chinese babies are, for the most part, smaller than American babies, but you never know; we could end up with a chunk (or a little peanut). I am sure I will be dashing around buying stuff right before we leave that will fit her then, but it is SO MUCH FUN to buy little dresses and imagine her in them. I have bought many gifts over the years for expectant friends and relatives, as well as nieces and nephews; it just feels really good to buy stuff for OUR baby. And oh, what a decked-out little girl she will be, as I will make sure she wears dresses and skirts and bows in her hair as often as possible - every day if I have my way!
