When we were expecting and found out Stella was a baby girl, I instantly fell in love with planning for her arrival, and of course, stocking her closet. I meticulously selected so many pretty, preppy little frocks that I couldn't wait to dress her up in. Having a baby girl is just as much fun as I imagined it would be, if not even more so!
As she grows so quickly, I can't help but be sad each time I realize a little bubble outfit or precious smocked bishop dress is suddenly too small. Some of the really special ones I will keep of course, and some I'm sure I'll end up consigning or giving away to friends with future baby girls.
But the idea of having a little doll to dress up forever...just like in these pictures...it is just one of the many reasons that I was so meant to be a little girl's mommy, and how fortunate I am that my dream of having a daughter came true. Sure, I would love to have a little boy one day...but for now I am having too much fun dressing up my little mini-prep!
