I forgot to tell you I’m 100%  (4 ultrasounds later) baby #3 is a GIRL …and I’m a little bit excited to add some pink into my life.  I’m not sewing anything for this baby until after Christmas…because I know once I see the spring fabric lines I’m going to want all those too.  It’s just fun to buy pink and have a reason to buy it. :)

    Oh lovely news! I also had two boys then a girl – a big surprise when we found out, were sure it would be another boy! Having a girl dramatically increased my collection of pink fabrics, of that I am sure! My little one is three now and is about to have a Ruby quilt on her new big girls bed! :)

    But a few extra bibs in different pinks wouldn't hurt.. or ruffly baby bottoms.. :) They are too hard to resist. I saw a cute pattern somewhere the other day where the dress was open in the back smock like so that you could see the ruffly baby bottom.. OH SO CUTE.. You just wanna squeeeeee.

  30. Elsa November 11, 2011 at 3:18 pm #

    Congratulations! I always wanted a girl but had one boy (crazy about him). Then I got a daughter-in-law and it made everything just right (though she's not crazy about pink and won't let me dress her up in fluffy clothes ~ teehee).

  31. SewSara November 11, 2011 at 3:50 pm #

    yay!!! we're having a girl, too, and i'm so excited :)

  32. Jessica November 11, 2011 at 3:50 pm #

    That is so exciting! I dream of someday having a baby girl… the lightsabers and guns are starting to get to me! LOL!

  33. jac. November 11, 2011 at 3:54 pm #

    I'm expecting my first girl too! Once you start buying those pink and girlie fabrics you wont look back :)…and there's no stopping:).

  34. Stacy November 11, 2011 at 4:03 pm #

    Congratulations! Girls are so much fun.

  35. Melinda November 11, 2011 at 4:04 pm #

    I just had my girl two weeks ago. For someone so tiny, there is a giant pile of pink laundry at all times. I kind of love it though, very different from the truck, car, dinosaur and Lego clothes I've been immersed in for four years.

  36. Rebecca November 11, 2011 at 4:38 pm #

    A little lady! Congrats!! The sewing will be so much fun :)

  37. Natalia from Piece N Quilt November 11, 2011 at 4:44 pm #

  38. Amy in VA November 11, 2011 at 4:49 pm #

    Let the twirly dresses begin! Fairly soon you will hear the phrase "I'm not wearing that because it doesn't twirl." Congrats

  39. toots2u November 11, 2011 at 4:51 pm #

    Woo hoo! Fun to have a mix of boys and girls. Have fun adding in pink!

  40. Melanie@Crafty Cupboard November 11, 2011 at 5:22 pm #

    Yay! No switcheroos for you, then? Hee hee, congrats, I'm excited!

  41. Mrsblocko November 11, 2011 at 5:54 pm #

    Congrats! Just don't get too too attached to pink, if you do, then you'll wind up with a tomboy for sure! ;)

  42. Jeanie November 11, 2011 at 5:56 pm #

    Congratulations! I had three precious baby girls myself and one sweet boy, too. Best wishes to you and baby girl!

  49. KellyS November 11, 2011 at 8:43 pm #

    Congratulations! My DR assured me a few times that he was 95% sure it was a girl, and I went nuts buying pink fabric. I was so worried that when the baby arrived it would be another boy, but no, thankfully she was a girl! My favorite colors were blue and green, but now I find myself loving lots of warm colors too.

  50. Carol November 11, 2011 at 9:01 pm #

  55. sandra November 12, 2011 at 12:51 am #

    congratulations, on having a little girl. I had a little girl and sewed a lot for her but now I have two grandsons and the fabrics and patterns are so much sweeter for little girls but I love them to death.

  56. Lexi November 12, 2011 at 1:02 am #

    We too had two boys and a girl. She sure does change the family dynamics and they are a wonderful balance to a boy dominated family. I feel your excitement and remember how happy I was when I found out too. Congratulations. May she bring you and your family so much joy.

  57. Gayle November 12, 2011 at 1:32 am #

  58. Kate @SwimBikeQuilt November 12, 2011 at 1:45 am #

    Congratulations Allison! My daughter loves to wear frilly skirts and her brother's jerseys. A good combo, I guess :) Just not together.

  61. Jenn at The Little Shop of Stitches November 12, 2011 at 2:27 am #

    I buy pink fabric just so I can look at it whenever I want. I'm the only estrogen in the house. Besides the cat, that is.

    Congratulations! I had 2 boys and now have a baby girl. So much fun buying pink everything. Luckily we were given some pink hand-me-downs to last the first few months, but now we're running low. Am just about to try and make some denim overalls (with pink dino and pink trim of course!)

  71. yenni November 12, 2011 at 10:06 am #

    I am so excited for you Allison!!!! Not sure how you do it all… I have an 8 week old son and have yet to start quilting again. I'm sad about it, I have fabric waiting to be cut but I'm too damn tired to get started. Tell me I'll get back into the swing of things? Lie to me!!!

  82. Bree November 13, 2011 at 12:09 am #

  84. Dara November 13, 2011 at 2:53 am #

    I just had my ultra sound on Thursday and it's a boy- which will bring the total to 4 boys and I girl. So there isn't a lot of pink happening over here (much to my daughter's chagrin!).

  85. rilojane November 13, 2011 at 3:43 am #

    Yay! Snips and snails and puppy dog tails are so overrated. HAHA!!
    Good choice on waiting until after Christmas- those spring lines are a KILLER!
    Many pink congrats!
