Since finding out Baby Jordan was a girl, I've started to think back on all the little signs I'd been given about her gender leading up to the day we found out. I don't really believe in signs per se, but just go along with it.
First, we had a name ready to go. 100 percent decided. Unlike our boy name that was 50 percent decided. My husband was convinced that if we had a little boy, his middle name would be Wayne. I told him I would cross my legs and resist delivery over the name Wayne.
I'm sorry if you are reading this and your name is Wayne.
Secondly, prior to knowing our gender, I would peruse the fabric store with LJ to look at fabric for Knox's room. If I found fabric I liked, I would have a swatch cut. Somehow, all my fabrics ended up being for a little girl's room. Coincidence? ... humm ... probably so ... but it's fun to think I had some divine mother's intuition thingy going on!!
So, here's the fabric for Tilly's crib bedding. I think it will be lovely with her fun green dresser. I've marked on the photo which fabric goes where. With the dresser and this colorful fabric, everything moving forward will be more subdued.
I immediately loved the center fabric, but didn't really know what to put with it. Fortunately, my sweet friend Amanda owns the best fabric store in town, Milling Around, and helped me pull the rest of the fabrics together. I love her and her store!
I think it's fun, different and girly without being pink! And I'm pretty sure if I went with a soft, sweet "baby" room, I would tire of it quickly. I love seeing her room come together, but I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that in a few months she'll be in the room, too.
How can I ever be 100 percent ready for that?
