Guilty pleasure

A friend of mine wrote that choosing clothes for a baby girl is "one of life's (guilty?) pleasures." It sure is. Having a boy is wonderful, but clothing-wise, you are limited to blue, grey, brown, black, etc. Having a girl means pink, pink, pink! All the pink you can stand, as another blogger put it. And my tolerance is high :)

I checked the average temperature of Orlando in February and decided that Z would need some short-sleeved onesies to wear. So I went to and got her a white eyelet sun hat, two pink skirts, a "smocked bubble", a white dress with red roses, a "popcorn sweater" coat (in pink, of course) and a little onesie that says "Chicks rock" (featuring an actual yellow chick, playing the guitar). Most of these items are for the summer, but a couple were in the 3-6 month size, should it get really hot in Orlando.

I don't know why it is so delightful to buy clothes for a little girl. But it is.

I'm glad you're having fun buying girly things for Z. When my nieces were little I loved buying clothes for them on my lunch hours in Philly. Some of the clothes were so cute that they still have them even though they are too big to wear them. They are older now, and shop for their own clothes. So, enjoy it while she's little!
