The Newest Little Junkyard Dawg

Last fall, when I was 18 weeks along with my pregnancy, I was scheduled to have a sonogram to check on the growth of the baby.  These 18-22 week sonograms are pretty routine, and most people get really excited about them because that's when you can usually find out whether you're having a boy or a girl.  I was SO excited about mine that I couldn't sleep the night before.  (Of course, that might have had something to do with the 7 trips to the bathroom during the night, too...) 

Anyway. 

Obviously, we got the fabulous news that we were having a girl, and we were thrilled.  Finally, I could start buying little clothes and dreaming about how my little bundle of joy would look!  When I got home from the doctor's office, I sat down at the computer, and I typed the following words into the google search engine:

"UGA football dress baby girl"

Here's what came up...














 Well, maybe not that exact picture, but it was that exact dress...














Yes, my friends.  The very first article of clothing that I bought for my very first child was a red UGA football dress with a big G emblazoned on the chest.  You'd better believe it.




















I'm raisin' this kid right, even if we are temporarily exiled from the promised land.



















I'm also starting to teach her the kick-off cheer... 

Goooooooo DAWGS!!!    Sic 'Em!!!  Woof, Woof, Woof!!! 

She loves it.  Here she is, giving it a try for the first time...




















Not bad for her first time!!

Ella makes a very cute Bulldog pup! She'll be all set with the cheers when she starts at UGA! Glad to see you are raising her right:)

Love that dress! Of course, any niece of mine needs more than ONE outfit to show off her great taste in football teams. Time for Aunt Meghan to get her some extra UGA clothes!

If that sounded snotty, I didn't mean it that way. I'm just sayin' that I want to make sure that if a Saturday rolls around and her dress is dirty, she has something else to wear to cheer on the dawgs!! =)
