Girl Child Fun

I am a very girly girl and I’m having SO much fun having a daughter because I love all things pink and girly girl! I simply can’t seem to stop myself from shopping for Ava, I love all the cute pink things and the adorable clothes they make for little girls. My MIL gets annoyed when I say that the girls things are cuter than the boys things, but hey, thats my opinion. And seriously, you can’t buy cut bows and hats and hair accessories and shoes for boys now can you?

So each morning, I stand in front of Ava’s cupboard and carefully select what she’ll be wearing for the day, especially on the days when we go out. I get such a kick out of people’s reactions to her. I lay her clothes out like a story board each morning before we go out, just like this:

Planned down to the shoes & accessories!

And then, I get the biggest kick out of the finished arrangement:

So pretty in pink!

Her party outfit arrived all the way from Utah in the US. I’ll update with some pics of that very soon! But I’ll just say for now… its to die for doll!

    I think i was blessed with a little boy because i’d be on the street now if i had a daughter! boys are fun to dress too but there really isn’t the selection that girls have and those ribbons and bows are just to die for!!!

    Enjoy it while it lasts. Before you know it, she’ll be choosing her own outfits (and what you’re allowed to buy in the shop). Usually it’s completely unappropriate for the weather conditions, only occasionally matches and then they like to dig out the old favourites and wear them over and over and over again until you don’t even know why you bother to buy anything else!!! Oh and once she starts crawling (which should be any second now that she’s 7 months) you’ll need to start laying out 2/3 outfits a day!

    I am also such a girly girl and would you know it I have 2 boys! what I wouldnt give for clips and bows!!
    you do get quite cool hip outfits for boys but nothing compared to the cute stuff for girls! And to second what zamom said – once they start dressing themselves – oh my word – I have had some embarrassing trips to the shops with some really weird outfit choices……and there is not convincing him to change!

    I agree – little girl clothes are so much more fun than little boy clothes. Just look at the sale shelves! There are always a million sale things for the girls but you have to search high and low for something decent for the boys. Enjoy this time Sharon, and shop till you drop. Ava is gorgeous and I love indulging my litle girl fantasy vicariously through watching Ava.

    What a gorgeous girlie girl Shaz. I must say that I do the same with Jared’s clothes everyday and like to get compliments on how cute he looks. I was quite sad that I wouldn’t have a little girl to dress in all the pink and bows etc but must say I have had fun buying cute things for Jared and am always on the lookout for someting new and different. Its such fun!

    Love how you lay out her clothes!

    Re the 2 – 3 outfits a day – I just stopped buying anything light on the bottom for Kendra – she only wears jeans and I got some brown cords for her too.

    I am also a very girly girl but have been blessed with two boys. I love them with all my heart but I just know that I would have been an awesome girl Mommy.
    I love the way you lay out her clothes. That is exactly what I would have done. And you are right. Girl stuff is so much cuter than boy stuff and there is so much variety. Luckily I have nieces so occasionally I get to spend (way too much) money on cool clothes and girly stuff for them..x

    Ooooh i also like the girly girl things, when i have my sisters 2 little girls, i cant wait to take all their clothes out, and see what i can dress them in. And when i go shopping, i HAVE to get something for our god daughters !

    Ava is really really so cute, she gets cuter and cuter every time you post a pic, you and W are truly truly blessed, and it warms my heart so see you this happy with your baby girl !!!

    She is so cute, and obviously loves being a girly girl!
    Love all the pink stuff for girls! Am not yet at the stage where she chooses her own stuff, so I am making the most of it. But at the moment, if I do open her cupboards, she almost starts hyperventilating when she sees her stuff, especially loves pulling out all her shoes. She tries to geab as many things as she can, and hugs them to her.

    Oh those shoes are so cute! Where’d you get them? And those bows are just adorable! So gorgeous, little Miss!

    I must say, I have fun dressing my boy, but they definitely don’t have all the fun accessories! I think my child would much rather be a nudist.

    So cute! I do the same every morning for Claudio, but you’re right, I get so frustrated when I go clothes shopping and there are always so many more options for girls than boys. I still have fun dressing him though 🙂
