Princess Bowie

This is the theme we picked out
Remember how I told you MM was a little bummed about us having a girl instead of a boy? Well, I understated that a little. He was really upset. The day we found out he said "I'm not one of those guys who just wants a healthy baby. I want a healthy baby boy!". Poor MM. I should probably be bothered by this. I'm not. It just makes me laugh. Like I said before, I know MM will love this little girl.

Anyway, since then I think he's come to accept that he's having a girl. A couple weeks ago we went to Babies-R-Us to do our gift registry. I made the mistake of giving MM the scanner gun. We got through the first half of the store no problem. But when we got to the bedding section..well MM went a little crazy. Every time I said "this one is cute" MM scanned it. And all the matching accessories. Receiving blankets, mobiles, wall hangings, light-switch covers..the works. We ended up with 5 or 6 of these. A friend asked us later if we'd chosen 1 bedding set..I had no idea what she meant until I went online and looked at our registry. Holy crap.

Pink Camo for MM's princess
Something else I noticed? It looked like a bottle of Pepto had exploded all over our registry. Everything was pink. Pink clothes, pink bottles, pink blankets, pink pink pink pink pink. Apparently MM went crazy with more than just the bedding. I vaguely recall going to the bathroom at one point...I guess I shouldn't have left him alone.  The best part? We'd decided to go with a green and brown theme, rather than a pink one. MM must have forgot...

A few days later MM was messing around online and snickering over something. After I bugged him for a bit he showed me what it was...a pink camo bedding set from Cabela's. Pink camo. I said "Are you trying to turn her into some kind of princess? Pink is a princess color."

He said, "There's never been a princess like she's going to be. They're going to model a new Disney princess after her. They're going to call her Bowie, like the knife." A Disney princess named Bowie? Who wears pink camo and...does what, exactly? Frightens all the boys with her superior knife skills? He's such a freak.

Although... I joke, but I've totally been thinking of her as Princess Bowie ever since. So is MM really the freak, or am I?

Princess Bowie - Fights crime with her excellent knife skills but can still come home and be a girl. I love it. That's just too cute yet...not. lol

I have been totally thinking of her as Bowie as well :) I think it's cute!

Bowie actually isn't a horrible name. The more I think about it, the more I like it. Then again, my boy's middle name will be Browning, which most people will assume is after the firearms company, so...

I was going to use that pink camo if we had a girl. I love it. :) We're still going to get a camo diaper bag.

I KNEW MM would cave when he saw all that cute girlie stuff in the baby store. They just can't resist. But pink camo? What will they think of next? Why NOT Princess Bowie? Sounds like a tag that is going to give you all some fun before you get to tag her with the forever name. I'm still so happy for you both . . .

I know I'm way late in replying to this, but....

This little girl is going to be SUCH a daddy's girl. She is so going to have MM wrapped around her little finger. I can't wait to see/hear all about it. Hee
