I can’t believe I have reached 29 weeks. Seriously! Less then 3 months. I’m starting to feel big now, and the thought that I will get way bigger freaks me out. In fact I’m measuring big for how far I am, yes another big baby in my future. I thought that wouldn’t be the case, well because everyone says girls are usually smaller….yes it is a girl! Yes, I can’t believe it. In fact, I got an extra ultrasound to check. I may have started crying the technician said there were no boy parts, I mean, I love boys but I deserve a girl. Not saying that others don’t. But I really really do. I have 8 brothers and 12 brother-in-laws and 2 sons and one very manly husband. I’m ready for a girl. A lovely little thing I can dress up, share secrets with, go shopping with and most importantly be best friends with. I know a lot of that sounds cheesy, but truly I have been dreaming of her for as long as I remember. My husband even acts a little differently with this pregnancy, almost like I’m more delicate because I have a little lady in my belly. Its quite cute.
But this time is different. I’m experienced and will be more prepared. I also feel like I get to start fresh. Now that I’m moved into my newly remodeled house, with a newly painted pink nursery to set her up in, I feel like this will be a whole different baby experience. Well, I think so, maybe. Having a girl vs. a boy. I can’t wait to buy dresses and make dresses. Oh I’m so looking forward to this. I’m mostly looking forward to have a daughter that will always be my daughter forever, who, despite the junior high days and some of high school days, will be my buddy (yes, son terminology I will have to work on that). Well, I dream anyway. Oh and side note….did I mention my very first diaper bag? Yes, I felt like it was finally time to own one and I’m so excited to use this adorable petunia pickle bottom backpack. Perfect travel companion/laptop bag. Can’t wait to test it out.
