One of my great joys of motherhood was hearing my first child would be a girl … a girl I could treat like my little dolly. Dress her up, take her everywhere just like a little girl would bring her doll.
My mom and I went the next day after finding out she was a girl and picked out every girly, frilly, little thing we could find. Yes, we are those people. Now per my husbands simple request, I easily agreed not to go too girly, such as princess everything. We both agreed to do more of a laid-back surfer girl style, but I could still dress her up. I bought so many foo-foo dresses and headbands – just waiting to dress up my little girl.
