We actually have a GIRL!!!

[Disclaimer:  This post may contain what appears to be favoritism...Don't worry--it isn't.  It is just pure gratitude and excitement about our little girl FINALLY arriving!]

I know....shocking, but true!  We actually have a GIRL!  And what a girl she is... She just came that way.  She loves girly things and it thrills us to no end!  
We have four ADORABLE boys and they are 110% BOYS...and they love all sorts of "boyish" things.  We have eaten, slept, played, breathed, boy things for so long...AND we love boys!  They are funner than fun!    
And then...all of a sudden we find ourselves in BRAND NEW TERRITORY!  Alli loves all things girly....hair pretties, bracelettes, purses, dresses, clothes, high heeled shoes, lip gloss, flowers...!!! (and the list goes on...)
We love our little princess Alli.  She is like a breath of fresh air!  She goes out in the lawn and gathers all the little clover flowers and brings them to us.  She insists on smelling ALL flowers!
We caught a couple pictures of her enjoying herself thoroughly with some fresh cut roses.  
Oh life's simple pleasures!!!

I have the same feeling every day...although for me it's We have a BOY!! We will need to continue to swap tips...I know I'm going to need them. Mostly because Logan is a boy, but mostly because he is an OSTLER BOY!!! How do they jam all that energy and personality into such small packages?

The first picture looks like an old fashioned post card that is sooo darn cute. I love seeing the personalities they came with, they are so much their own people aren't they? so cute. :)

awesome, I hope she stays that way and doesn't turn into tomboy just because she feels she needs to fit in with the boys, trust me I know! Envelop her in girlishness and then some (for me).

What a sweet girl. We have a love for boys too, since we have 3 of them so we really do understand that same love. I could only hope that someday we have a little girl too. :)

Jaquie I am so glad you got such a girlie girl. Its fun to experience both boys and girl and how fun and different they can be. I am sure your daughter will do her best to keep those boys from taking over the whole house. Flowers are a great way to remind them that girls live here too.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
