My little Girl

So I have to say that having a little girl is very different from having a boy. Up until now all I have known is having a boy, I love my little boy and everything to do with having a little boy, but I am learning about what fun it is and will be to have a girl now. I have been and still am a little nervous about having a daughter. I know what to do with a son, I understand how he likes to play. The nice thing for me is that I grew up in a house with boys, up until I was 16 it was me my three brothers and our parents. (after that it was a little different) So boys is what I was use too. When David was born I was so excited both Chris and I wanted to have a boy first and he was perfect in every way. We have always wanted to have two children and we had both agreed that if we were going to have two sons that would be great, ideally we wanted to have a boy and a girl.

Now with my pregnancy with Jaclyn I felt from the beginning that I was having a girl. During my pregnancy I would look at girly things and dream about what she would be like, the whole time I would do this I would also be getting ready for another boy. The theme I had pick for her room was even more of a boy theme. (that has changed now) When she was born and they told me she was a girl I was so excited and scared at the same time. Now that she has been here for a couple of weeks I have started to get use to all the pink and girly things. In fact I think that all of it is wonderful! I am excited to put dresses on her and dress her up. I am looking forward to watching her grow up.
I love her smile!
Her first real outfit!

I love my daughter!

I'm not sure that I've ever commented here, but I check on you guys every now and then. We've never met, Katherine, but my husband and I went to CBC with Chris. We had a baby girl on March 16th, just after you guys. And we have a 2 year old son too. Anyway, I think that I could copy and past this entry that you wrote right onto my blog and no one would know the difference. It's exactly my story. I had no idea how I would handle having a girl when I knew how to be a mommy to a boy so well... but now that I'm getting used to it, I'm totally loving it. We put our first real outfit on our daughter today (saw the pics of Jaclyn in hers - she's such a cutie!!)
Sorry for such a long post - just wanted to share that I totally hear where you're coming from!
Hope you're all doing well...
