I was reading over at Life in a Shoe and was reading her Thankful Thursday post and it inspired me to write this one. Up until our latest child was born in October, we had five boys and no girls. We found out we were expecting a girl two weeks before she was born. We had already had our baby shower and had been given a $25 gift certificate. With that we went to Walmart and bought a pkg. of onesies and a couple of pants, one little dress and a pair of booties. I had wondered how we would be able to dress our little girl, but didn't worry to much. My daughter was almost 3 weeks late and during that time my mother-in-law, who doesn't generally buy clothes except for birthdays, brought over, at different times, a couple of packages of onesies. After she was born my Daddy and step-mom bought her a nice dress (which she wore to my brother's wedding at 10 days old. We also received many clothes for her for Christmas just two and half months later. Plus my aunt gave me hand me downs from a friend of hers at church. She has since given us more also. We have had many people who can't resist buying a girls outfit as in my family as well as my dear husbands girls are a rare find. We know have a church family that has shared some of there little girls clothing for when Katie (our baby girl) is a little older. We have been very blessed. God has provided. Of course, when we have a little money and I find a good deal I also tend to get her clothes. It is so nice to buy frilly clothes. I look forward to being able to put things in her hair, as right now she doesn't have much hair. God has been very good to us and I am reminded of that when I see what clothes she does have.
