It’s a tradition in James’ family not to find out the gender of the baby. We both thought it was such a fun idea and decided not to either. As much as I want to have a son one day, having a daughter has always been a dream of mine. When they announced to us that she was a girl, I was so overwhelmed with emotion, I could hardly speak. I’ve never been happier.
Dressing Stella is literally one of my most favorite things to do. I have so much fun picking out outfits that match her personality. I am not big of enormous bows and smocked dresses. I prefer to put Stella in clothes that I would wear and she is comfortable in. Children’s clothes, just like ours, is a reflection of who they are and what they are doing. I use the opportunity of dressing Stella each day as just another way to express my love of putting together looks. I know one day she will cringe at the thought of mom getting her ready, until then, I am soaking up every moment.
