The Girl Transformation

I found out that we were having an Abby on Wednesday.  Since then, I've totally had shopping on the brain!  It's funny how having a girl can send you over the edge!  I'm trying to be smart and not blow the budget, so I'm choosing carefully and checking out some E-bay deals. 

These are two of the crib sets I'm considering.  The first one is my favorite because it's not pink.  :)

This morning, Caleb and I headed to SMILE (a thrift store) and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they were having a 1/2 off sale on all clothes!  I found 7 pieces + a little toy for Caleb for $2.25!!!  All of the items were name-brand (Carters, Janie and Jack, etc.) and I got a very cute light-weight jacket.  It was definitely a success!

I'm not a huge fan of pink, and it seems like every baby girl item is pink. I don't mind if there is pink in the outfit, but I don't particularly care for an entire pink outfit.  I also don't like lace and toule.  I've always been a bit of a tom-boy, but I'm not going to dress Abigail in jeans and tshirts!  She can be feminine without an entire wardrobe full of pink!  Who knows, that might change soon as I continue to shop for this little girl with whom I'm already in love!

Yeah, she's basically sent this already hormonal and emotional girl over the edge.  I cry whenever I think of how God has blessed our family.  (Yep, crying now!)
