Alisa said...

My 1st baby girl just turned 1. ( I have two boys whom I love also). And your post actually made me cry. Be prepared for some intense female hormones. ;-) But baby girls rock. There's nothing like this experience. My boys are wonderful, but this mama-daughter thing is just different special. You'll know what I mean soon enough. Enjoy being pregnant. And thanks for all your crafty ideas!
