Sugar and spice, and everything nice!

I'm totally enthralled with my wonderful little son. I'm beyond thrilled that we are expecting another boy, and that Thyra and Malachi will have a brother. I'm grateful that I have gotten to experience the joy of having a daughter, an amazing one at that.

BUT.... (you knew there was a but coming, didn't you!) But, I see things for girls, things that were beyond my reach or simply unavailable when Thyra was small, and I get a small pang, right about the area where my womb lies.

Deepening the longing is the discovery of beyond beautiful hand-smocked dresses by Perry Winkles Kids, a mother-daughter team in Toronto. Anyone who knows me, knows I like kids to look like kids, and find classic wear for children totally appealing, yet very hard to find. I mean who could resist the pull of cardigan-ed, be-ribboned, curly-haired girls in frocks such as these.
