    Thanks crew :)

    Here's the ones I did already...[​IMG]

    I admit I adore the froggy print. These were for the bun that's still in the oven, who it's a mystery if it's a boy or girl. The other two already born have been girls.

    On an off topic, what is it with everyone going "oh now they'll keep trying for a son they need to have another one"? I mean, the one born last week is a second daughter.

    Look! You created life! Is that not amazing enough without "oh they have to try again they need a boy"

    Girls are terribly under valued.
    My neighbors have five girls.
    I think they are great.

    Boys are okay....

    OH! and i really like the froggie print too. as a girl, I would have loved it.
    I don't do girly well. I do not really love pink, and mauve is the color that they carpeted Hades with.

    Those are very cute blankets! I am a froggie adorer too. It is really hard on the kids when they are expected to be a certain way or given certain limitations because of gender, either way. Having 4 boys, I was always asked if I wanted a girl. I would just look at them like they were nuts and say that I was blessed with four healthy kids, what more is there to ask for?
    Now I have two granddaughters, go figure.

    Some Ladies handle the 'Granny lust' well and some are a flat out pain in the *ss. good Luck with your MIL!!
    I have 3 Dear daughters and after #2 came along did not want a boy! He would have cost a pile of money and time, different clothes, room and, machines.
    Happy with what I got!!

    Prostar I love the froggies too. In fact when I am in the fabric stores I can't resist the adorable stuff for babies and kids. I do not sew but the patterns are so cheerful and fun, they speak to the child in me..

    When I go in for a blood test, I always ask the phlebotomist if I can have a (child) sticker. I pick the one that says "I passed my blood test." I also leave the bandaid/gauze on trying to get all the sympathy I can . Quite a step up from when I used to faint and scare them too death.
