the outfit

well, coming up on a year ago now, I was pregnant and had placed an order to Gap for a pair of maternity jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt. When my order arrived, I dumped out the bag onto my bed and the first thing I saw drop out was a clear plastic bag that said 'babyGap' on the outside and contained a hot pink item. My first thought was 'this isn't even my order,' but then the other items fell out, and I saw that they were correct. Next thought was 'Jason's gonna be so bugged at me. He's gonna think I ordered this girl outfit and we don't know what we're having yet. Plus we've got all of Abby's things so the last thing we need is more girl clothes.' (Sara can attest to this, as she now has many of them for little Mya). Next I looked closely at the packing slip, thinking I'd just send it back, but it wasn't even listed on there. My mind started wandering, thinking 'it's not even the right size; but as I processed more I realized it actually would be right since it's 3-6 month and the baby would be 6 months is Dec/Jan. I thought maybe they were just giving bonus baby gifts away with maternity orders, but surely they would have sent a neutral color, right? How could they know? Well, after that I lost all control and started jumping up and down, certain that this must confirm my inclination that the baby is a girl and this was my 'sign.' I referred to the 'mystery girl outfit' throughout the rest of the pregnancy, and boy, am I glad that this accidentally got thrown in my order because she looks so darn cute in it!

I have some emotion about this outfit!! Actually, it is how I felt about the pink mary janes. "the" shoes. I always dreamed that I would see Mya in them, as you have now seen Emily in this outfit..

HA - they are a size SIX. Not likely to happen!!!
