We are welcoming this Spring with the news of our sweet, beautiful, baby GIRL!
The thought of raising a girl is both terrifying and exciting. I wouldn't want to raise myself, and praise Jesus my Mom was able to make it through that gauntlet ;) It also means I am about to have my very own daughter - a girl who looks like me, might even act like me, and calls me her Mommy. Those things don't sound very profound, but I'm sure anyone who's become a Mom knows just how deep the feelings extend.
I have tried writing out sentence after sentence - both handwritten and typed - trying to somehow grasp the feelings that are constantly flooding me, but I can't capture it in words. It is too overwhelming and too unfamiliar, and so I am just enjoying experiencing it.
We can't wait to meet you, baby girl.
