Thank heaven for little girls...

Looks like we'll be welcoming a little girl into our home on August 25th, 2012 :). I'm gonna wait to announce the name, but I wanted to at least share the sweet news.

I feel so blessed to have another little girl! I've got so much clothing, there really isn't much I need to buy. Plus, I'm hoping she and Mirabel will be close, since they will be relatively close in age. I always wanted that kind of sister bond; I am so thankful Mirabel will have the opportunity to have that kind of friendship. I can already see them taking ballet classes together!

I was also thinking about what it'll be like when they both have children! Eep! I know, that's not for a LONG time, but I like to think ahead, you know me. Daughters and moms have a special relationship, especially when those daughters become mothers. I won't bust out in song, but I'm glad I'll be able to be there for them at that time, throw them showers, watch their children...and hopefully they'll still want me in their lives when they're teenagers, too.

Yes, I would eventually like a little boy. But how and when we get him, whether through adoption or through a natural birth, really doesn't matter. I'll be enjoying my little girls in the meantime...

And we will be taking a little break after this. The thought of not physically having another child makes me feel really sad, so I don't think this is the end for me... but I am DEFINITELY giving my body a break for a few years. Plus, I want to spend some quality time with my two little girls. Mirabel is growing up so fast already, and I know time is going to continue to fly by even faster.

Yeah! Congrats Sophie. I can't believe you already found out. I have my ultrasound on Friday and I can't wait. :)

Congrats! :-D As someone who had a sister, it has been helpful. Even though we weren't close when we were kids, we are now benefiting for it now. :)
