We’ve been holding on to this little secret for what seems like an eternity so we’re very excited to finally be sharing the happy news with every single one of you! We are having a BABY GIRL!!
Family and friends have known for quite some time but my husband and I decided to take our time when announcing to everyone. Every part of this pregnancy journey has felt so personal and special and done at our own pace. It’s honestly the best feeling knowing SHE will be here come 2019 and I get to have a daughter! Like what?! I just can’t wait to meet her! My husband is equally as excited and is constantly talking about baby girl and how special a father/daughter bond can be.
It’s also true what they say that once you know the gender things start to feel more real. The moment I knew I was going to have a daughter I got flashes of all the big moments I’ve had in my life as a woman and I pictured what life would be like for her. Not going to lie a little of it was daunting but my biggest wish is to have a relationship with her like I do with my own mother. If I can accomplish that then I’ve done my job as a momma.
What I’m Wearing
As for a name, I think we’ll be waiting until she is born to announce. I’m about 80% set on her name but I keep going back and forth with middle names. I’ll sometimes shout out a random name just to see what my husband will say and he either nods yes or flat out says no. It’s a fun little game we play lol but I’ve got a feeling it’ll all come together once we meet her.
A million thank you’s for coming along on this special journey with us. From the very beginning, it’s been so incredible sharing this new chapter in our lives. These entries are like my personal journal pages that one day I’ll look back on and smile.
If you guys are parents or parents-to-be and know the gender of your baby, I would love to know how you felt when you found out or what it’s like being a boy/girl mom? I’d love to know more about your parenting journeys!
Until my next post!
