It's A Girl!!

My daughter Amy, who is expecting baby #3 called me the other day.
We now know, It's a GIRL!!!!

Amy and Dano adore their two little boys, Isaak (age 3) and Noah (age 1).
And they would love another little boy, too.... but they are very excited it's a GIRL!

I've had this feeling for some time that a little baby girl was on the way.
A few months ago I was visiting my friend Monica and she was making these cute little dresses for her own daughter.

Monica created this easy design after seeing dresses on the market, and gave me the directions to follow so I could make some too.

That afternoon we went out together and shopped at some of the quilt stores here in St. George, picking out more fabric for dresses.
(I just couldn't help myself.)

Monica put ready made buttons on hers. Since I'm into making covered buttons right now, I knew I had to use my own made out of matching fabrics.

I also went out and purchased some cute little girl tops and pants to go with the dresses.
This size will fit a 6-12 month girl, so it will be a while before they can be used.
I can hardly wait.

Nedra...I am so excited for you and the family to be expecting a little girl! I love the little dress you made. On Sunday at church a set of sunbeam twins were wearing the cutest little dresses and at first I thought they were handmade by someone but then I noticed the labels on them. Today I googled the name and you can see the cute dresses...lots of fun ideas. I will e-mail you the link! I am going to make some for Kristina...even though she's eight she is still a girly girl so still loves dresses! Have a great day and once again, congratulations!

So exciting! We had two little girls and I was beyond ecstatic when we found out our third was a boy. So much fun to get that other gender. I'm excited for your daughter and also excited for the baby. She is going to be one stylin' girl!

Tell your friend that we would love for her to publish her pattern. I'd love to make some cute little dresses for Camden...and I'm not much of a clothes sewer...used to be...but I think I could make one of those. Cute as can be.
