Baby #2 is...

A GIRL!!!

To say I am thrilled is a bit of an understatement!  If you know me well, you know how much I wanted a little girl this time.  I admit, I wanted Grayson to be a girl too, but this baby even more.  I'm so happy it turned out this way though.  While I may have wanted a girl first, I'm glad our first was a boy and that our future children will have an older brother to look up to.  And I can't imagine not having Gray in our little family now. 

I don't remember if I mentioned it on here, but for those of you who asked me what I thought this baby was I said girl from the beginning.  And not just because that's what I was hoping for.  This pregnancy has been a lot different than my first.  Mainly in the fact that I wasn't nearly as sick, thank goodness!  What a blessing since I have Grayson this time around. :)  I also just had this feeling it was a girl.  I even called her a her a few times before the ultrasound, haha.  I knew Grayson was going to be a boy too, but wouldn't admit it to myself.  But he did turn out to be a boy and this time I felt more confident in my intuition.  So far I'm 2-0!  Hope I can keep it up. :)

Here is what I spent my day yesterday doing while Gray was napping and then again after he was in bed.  

Baby girl headbands!!!

Some of them I attached to the headband permanently and other have clips on the back to slip on and off interchangeable headbands.  The ones that aren't on headbands have clips to attach them to a headband.

These first 3 were during nap time and I took them outside with natural light.  After that it was dark and I had to take them inside and without pretty backgrounds. :)



I think this one is going be for her blessing day with her all white dress.  I'm going to attach it permanently to a headband, but I want to wait until I can measure her head and make sure it will fit when I need it to!







I'm having so much fun already!  I can't wait to make lots more things for her. 

On a completely different note, I cut my hair.  Again.  I cut a bunch off about 2 weeks ago and didn't like the style of it.  So I had even more cut off last week.  It is shorter than it's ever been, but I really like it.  It's nice for summer and faster to do in the morning. 

Before

After- take 1
