I could not send the gift, or show it to you, before now, because my friends did not want to know ahead of time if baby number four was a boy or a girl. I did. I wanted to know with baby number three, too, but had to impatiently wait. This time, since they do not live nearby anymore, they let me keep the secret! Their ultrasound technician wrote it down, sealed it in an envelope, and they mailed it to me. Do I have amazing friends or what???? I felt so honored that they both loved me enough to indulge me and trusted me enough to keep the secret from the - literally - hundreds of other people who were playing the guessing game.
Baby is a girl.
I must be honest. If they had been having a boy, I would have gone all out with blues and dinosaurs. However, this is their fourth girl. I have seen the abundance of pink and purple and girlie motifs they already have. So I mostly kept the pink to one blanket.
I am thrilled that they had another girl, though! As much as I love being a mom to boys, I love the idea that their four daughters make two pairs of sisters with a few years gap between. I love my sister, and I know their mom and her sister are best of friends.
I also sent a soft green blanket, lighter in weight than the pink one.
The fourth item was a set of Baby Geek onesies, because my friend is a big Harry Potter fan. I'm giving them their own post, so no photo here.
