A couple of baby girls are gonna be born this July to each of two lovely young ladies I know here in DV. I remember when the sex of the newbie was always a surprise; whether you wanted it or not. Seriously, when I was expecting my daughter, 20-some years ago, you had to get doctors orders and a special appointment to have the altrasound to be told the sex of your babe. Nowadays it seems to be a standard operating procedure. They don’t ask you if you want to know; they ask you if you don’t want to know! I guess it’s all about being prepared; finishing the nursery in the appropriate color, collecting the wardrobe in the right styles, and choosing a name.
Well, I’d have to admit that I’m glad to know the sex of these two babies because I was able to choose, start and finish the knitted gifts long before they arrive. I’m nearly finished both bundles and there is still about ten weeks left. Yeah!
I can’t wait to meet the little divas and give them their gifts.
