horray for margaret!

i may be the only one interested in her birth story, but i am shamelessly asking for it anyway.

would it be too weird if i sent her a sundress or something? because everyone i know has a baby boy. i don't get to sew any cute girl clothes, though i would surely like to make some.

wix, that would kick ass! i don't think it would be weird at all--i have lots and lots of boys in the family, and can totally understand being excited about a new baby girl.

Welcome to the world, Maggie. (And congratulations, Auntie! You'll have a grand ol' time -- I have a niece, too, no nephews and no other nieces, so she is one spoiled girly-girl). ~Tonya
