Friday Shiny – week ending April 3

We have confirmation that my niece is having a girl! Yay! The CatMan and I have been referring to the baby as “Rex” ever since my sister told me the baby’s first ‘portrait’ (ultrasound) resembled a baby T-Rex.  The CatMan is quick to point out the feminine of Rex is Regina, which really doesn’t suit as a nickname if you ask me. So now our informal nickname for her is going to be “Rexette” or “Rexie.” I have heard from other parents of baby girls that the deluge of pink items is almost too much to bear, so I promised Rexie’s mom that I would take that into consideration. Here are a few cute ideas for our family’s newest addition:

Headwraps – ACK! So freaking cute!

I think pink done like this would be totally awesome!

And speaking of Lilly Pulitzer – “The Queen of Pink and Green” -something like this in a true green might go a long way to de-sugaring baby pink clothing.

(And I’ve heard that Rexie’s daddy thinks there should be some camo involved. I wonder if this would suit…)
