Girl



A girl! I knew it was a girl, just like I knew with Johnny it was a boy. 

Well, it wasn't just like with Johnny.  With Johnny I had a dream I was having a boy, and after that I just had a very strong sense that it was a boy. With this one there was no dream, but everything felt different, not the symptoms really, but me. I felt different. And I just had a feeling it was a girl.  My sister actually had a dream it was a girl this time around. So now we are both feeling very clairvoyant. 

The ultrasound tech got a face shot of little baby girl. She said cute. I said creepy. 


 Now that it's settling in that we are having a girl I'm realizing that I have no idea what it's like to have a girl. I only know what it's like to have a boy.  Honestly, I'm a little nervous about raising a girl because I know what it's like to be a girl. I know how competitive and mean spirited girls can be.  I know what the media bombards at girls in regards to image. I know the pressures, the worries, and the struggles. It's a scary world for girls.

But I also know that girls can be resilient, and confident. They can be shaped by the Holy Spirit and not by the world. They can see themselves through the eyes of God and not through the eyes of pop culture. They can be leaders, and not followers. This is what I want for my girl. And this is what we will pray for, as well and wisdom in parenting.


Feet! That's better than the face shot.

  3. Congratulations! I have a 6 yr old boy and 3 mon old girl/boy twins. I felt the same way. Plus i am not "girly" (don't own makeup, dont know how to do hair or a thing about fashion). From what I can tell, my daughter as a baby is easy breezy compared to both boys, and a few other moms have told me the same thing. I have a theory that boys are harder babies and easier teens, girls are easier babies and harder teens.

    If you thought seeing your husband with your son made your heart melt, just wait until you see him with your daughter. My daughter is a total daddies girl already. So sweet!
