In Search of New Vocabulary...

Eat, sleep, get held a lot.

This is the life, isn't it?

While I get used to the whole idea of having a little girl, she is getting plenty of lovin's...

We eye-ball her little girl clothes with eager anticipation!!!

 And I'm thankful for little girl clothes!!!  My first words to her as she was handed to me were,

"It's ok, buddy.  Don't cry."

I realized then and over the next several days how used to little boys I've become.  I'm working on acquiring a whole new girly vocabulary...

Even with dressing her in girly clothes, I keep calling my precious daughter 'little guy' , 'buddy', 'bud', 'he', 'him', etc...

Thankfully, she's been very understanding.

For those of you that like that sort of thing, I'll be writing up my birth story soon and sharing since I love reading them so much...


  1. I did the same thing when my little girl was born- after 4 boys it took a lot to not say buddy, sir, boy, it's second nature to say the girly words instead. Congratulations on your new baby girl!

  2. She is beautiful. Can hardly wait to hold her. And we are going to have alot of fun with the boys. MiMa

  3. Aww... I love that photo of your mom with the grandkids. And I can't wait to read your birth story! Evie shared a little with me, but I like details. : )

  4. Oh Heather, she is GORGEOUS!!! I can SO identify with tripping over the he's and she's!! Aren't little girl clothes just the sweetest things?! I have to resist wanting to dress my little one in a new outfit three times a day!!

  5. What a cutie pie!! I've been thinking of you Heather! How FUN to have your precious Greta home at last!! I *know* what you are talking about! It was quite an adjustment for me too. ENJOY!!!!!

    With Love,

  6. She is so beautiful!! Congratulations! :)
