My Thoughts on the Royal Baby

I have been so excited for Kate Middleton and Price William to welcome their second baby. I was hoping they'd have a girl and was so excited when it was revealed the baby was a girl. Yes, it's a lot of silly hoopla for the birth of a baby...but she's a princess! What girl {and heck grown woman} doesn't wish to be a princess. I did have a few thoughts as I read story after story online about the little as-yet-unnamed princess.

1. Yes, Kate looks AMAZING. She had a baby and 6 hours later is in heels, make-up, hair fully blown out. I was lucky to be able to get my thoughts together after both babies, let alone my looks. Yes, she had a team help her look gorgeous. I'm sure she's smiling and thinking about getting home and into her sweatpants. And I also think she's loving the hell out of her mesh panties and hoping she took enough pairs home from the hospital. {If you've had a baby, you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.} She's a duchess and someday will be queen, but she's still a regular woman, am I right?

2. OMG that baby is precious. But please {PLEASE} I hope her name isn't Alice like the bet makers are saying. Charlotte, Emily, Elizabeth, yes. Alice, no. I get that it will be something traditional. I don't expect a Piper or Tatum. I guess after George I can't get my hopes up...

3. I can't stand the way Brits dress their baby boys. I am probably in the minority, but I hate john-johns. George is totally adorable, but I am not a fan of knee socks and buckle shoes on boys. Put that kids in a Carter's t-shirt with bugs on it and some crocs!

4. I think Kate put a longer blanket on Baby Girl and held her lower to hide her tummy. Ha!

Were you all about the baby hoopla? What do you think her name will be?

I love it! I am so obsessed with Will and Kate and so happy for them. She looks amazing. I don't even think with a team of professionals I could look this good 6 hours after giving birth. No way no how.
