Sorry it has taken me SO long to get this post up. Better late than never, right?!?
That’s right, we’re having a sweet little GIRL, and we couldn’t be happier!!
Probably my favorite thing right now is imagining Sam in the role of big brother to a little sister… There will be almost four years between them which, to me, seems like the perfect space to have a protective older brother and an adoring younger sister… I used to dream of having an older brother when I was a kid. Now, all my dreams are coming true!! (Those of you that have been there done that, maybe let me just live in this dream stage for a bit, ok?!?)
Speaking of dreams, we had a simple little gender reveal party for our families about a week ago that featured Sam in the role of “Super Big Brother.” Jeff’s mom made him an adorable cape, and he broke into a super hero themed piñata that had been stuffed with pink confetti and candy to announce that he was having a sister. Unfortunately, my camera battery died that night and Sam was just starting to get sick, so I don’t have good photos… But the party was fun and our families are so so happy about our newest addition.
As of Saturday, I am 23 weeks pregnant. Other than last week’s nasty fight with the flu, I am feeling good and am SO excited to be welcoming a daughter into our family in just four short months. Everything feels a lot more real and immediate now that we know more about who SHE is. (Yes, we have a name, but we probably won’t share it until she arrives. Sorry!)
clean up the guest room start working on a nursery and buy all the things cute and monogrammed will commence soon. 😉 In the meantime, I’m soaking up this sweet time with my #1 and feeling grateful every day for the gift of being a mama.
Moms of girls, what do I need to know?!?!
