Just add one girl...

I adore little boys. Really, I do. The whole dirty-face, rough and tumble, bodily function humor, mama's boy thing...good times. And if I had a boy, I KNOW I would enjoy every single second. :-) But I LOVE being the mother of girls. Ruffles, painted toes, ballet recitals = pure bliss in my world.

Decorating Jillian's room, shopping for clothes, dreaming of HER the whole time....it has been a labor of love and promise. While not quite ready for the big reveal (soon, though...very, very soon...), I thought I would share a little sneak peek of the room we have worked so hard on for her. I love how it's all coming together. I find myself just standing in that space, daydreaming about our daughter half a world away.

I will post photos once we complete all the little details. Next up?? Unpacking and assembling a bookcase we bought for Jillian in 2008. I can't wait to see it put together! I almost forgot we had it (it's been in storage)!

Oh you tease!!! You gotta show more!! It looks so cute :) I agree... I love, love my boy but there is something about decorating a little girl's room. I took my time with Emeili's room while we waited and enjoyed EVERY minute of it!!

I know your little sweetie will love it too!!

Tee hee... I was just on the site this morning, hoping for something new since you've started it up again! I'm so impatient! Thanks for the sneak peak! And I know just what you mean about boys. Until I had one, I had NO idea what fun they would be. Having said that, it'll ALWAYS be more fun to shop for the GIRL! :)

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! How have I missed that you're adopting again?

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. And the room looks like it's going to be darling.
