pretty pink burp cloths! - ChloeJaneHandmade
As I mentioned last week, we are having a baby girl!! We are thrilled...really...it makes everything that more real for me, and gives me ample time to organize my brain, and my life, with the notion of being a mommy to a baby girl!!
This weekend Tommy and I moseyed through the baby department at our local Target...we haven't read up on cribs or strollers or car seats or anything, we just wanted to browse. It was interesting (sad?) to see the severe lines drawn between the genders when looking at all the different baby stuff. The little "girl" stuff was literally alllllllllllllllllllllllllll pink...with hyper girly motifs of butterflies and flowers. Cute...sure...but very very Princess Girly...you know? Poor Tommy started worrying a little bit. I assured him that no way would we get a pink stroller, or a diaper bag with hearts all over it. I dig a pink dress every now and then, but I'm not exactly a pink fiend.
I like the idea of making our child's room more gender neutral... less Barbie-girl. Though, she will, of course, be indulged in a few pink things simply because there are some wicked cute pink baby items out there ;-) (oh, and her aunties are obsessed with pink!) Here are some sweet lil samples of cute pinkness that I found on Etsy.
