It's a girl! Vivienne is going to have a sister! And *be* a sister! We are all over the moon. I was rooting for a girl, not that would have actually minded either way, because I thought it would be wonderful for Vivienne to have a sister and also it's what she was hoping for herself too. We also have a literal shed-load of Vivienne's old clothes that we'd bagged and kept from over the years so I'm pretty sure we'll save a small fortune in babygrows and other items.. I did feel a pang of guilt as David was rooting for a son so we could have one of each, but at the end of the day healthy baby is all both of us really care about. We're feeling incredibly lucky and Vivienne is absolutely buzzing.
The only downside (if you can call it that) is just how many beautiful things there are out there for little girls.. I'm not the biggest fan of baby pink (and it's bloody *everywhere*, I'm surely not the only one who find it all a bit sickly?), but found some gorgeous unisex things and not-overly-'girly' prints on the hughstreet and from some independent designers. The beautiful rompers below are from Nics and Bees and the bee two piece outfit and knitwear items are from H&M and Mamas and Papas. I've also been loving so much from La Redoute, Boden and Zara.. Really I think I need to chill out a little bit but it's all so bloody exciting!
