When I first heard that Beth was going to be doing a Girl Mom Series, I was beyond excited. Last year, I had participated in the Boy Mom Series
over at Chasin Mason
and it was so fun talking about superheroes, dirt, and crazy boy stuff. But, friends, after having 2 boys you better believe I love
talking about all things girl
Honestly, as soon as I found out I was pregnant with baby #3, I just knew it had to be a boy. When I was about 18 weeks pregnant, I went in for a doctors visit with my mom and grandma who were visiting from Michigan. We had been out and about, so they just came along and my doctor sweetly offered to do an ultrasound so they could see the baby. It was then that we found out little baby #3 was a little girl. Such a special moment to share with my grandma and mom. We have gone through a lot over the years and it just seemed like such hope and promise in that moment.
Now here I am with an almost 10 month old precious baby girl. I cannot imagine life without her. There really is just something unique and special about the bond you have with your daughter.
As I think about my daughter growing up, there are 4 things I hope for her.
1) I hope she finds her identity in God, not in boys or herself or material things.
2) I hope she has confidence to be her unique self.
3) I hope she overflows with grace and love to others.
4) I hope she laughs and loves life.
There are many other hopes and dreams I have, but for now, I am enjoying her sweet little baby phase. She already is way more active than my boys ever were- perhaps that is what happens when you have 2 older brothers. She is starting to love snuggling with stuffed animals and it just melts my heart. Daily I look at her playing with her brothers, and I am filled with overflowing love and amazement. Even in the midst of crazy moments, there really is something special and incredible about being a mom.
I would love to connect with you~
