The night before my 20 week ultrasound, we all guessed whether we thought baby Boots is a boy or a girl. (Baby Boots is the name we have been calling this little one for the past couple of months. I wanted something to call it until we knew if it was a boy or girl. Krew came up with the name, Boots, and it stuck!) Kade was the only one who was brave enough to guess against the blue theme we have going on in our family. We posted the following picture on Facebook, and everyone who commented on the picture guessed girl too.
I then spent the afternoon preparing these cupcakes, and waited for everyone to get home so we could surprise the kids and they could find out if they were getting a brother or sister.
I spent that evening, alone, shopping for baby girl clothes!! I have looked (briefly) at the little girl clothes many times when I have been shopping, and always had to pull myself away, reminding myself that I had no reason to look at all the cute girly things. But it was so fun to realize that not only can I look at the little girl clothes, but now I have a really great reason why I need to shop for little girl clothes!
