In case that beautiful pink frosting didn’t give it away already, we are having a GIRL!!! Jeff and I have always said we didn’t care either way, boy or girl, as long as the baby was healthy. But we had both talked at length at how wonderful it would be to have a sweet little girl. And I must say, I am pretty excited that we will have a son and a daughter. I can already imagine taking her to ballet class and braiding her hair. And I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m excited about the little girl clothes! This is the first baby girl on my mom’s side of the family since I was born; we have 7 busy boys! And Jeff is one of three sons! Needless to say, our parents are pretty excited about the news of a girl!
Knowing the gender always makes pregnancy feel more real for me. I could never wait to be surprised at delivery! I hate surprises! Something shifted for me that day we found out the gender, and this pregnancy became more exciting than ever. Because of all of the hardships of my pregnancy, knowing that we are having a healthy baby girl has been the boost I needed to conquer the second half of this journey.
I am looking forward to meeting our sweet little girl more than I can say. And there is a certain excitement about seeing my husband become a father to a baby girl that I can’t even explain! I know that Julian will be an amazing big brother because I see the way he treats other babies and animals with such kindness. Our sweet baby girl is so loved already. And so many of you guessed right that we would be having a girl! You guys are good! Thank you for stopping by to read about our exciting news! Much love to you all.
