a daughter

It is such a wonderful thing to look back at your life and see God's on hand it.  To see that he truly does give you the desires of your heart.

When I was pregnant with Sawyer, I really wanted a boy.  I'm not sure why.  I think partly because I was a major tomboy growing up and partly because I wanted one of those "momma's boys" everyone talks about.  And I was thrilled to learn he was in fact, a boy.

When I was pregnant with Graham, I was torn.  Thinking how it would be nice to have a daughter and experience all the baby girl world offers. But with the close age gap to Sawyer thought brothers would be so fun.  And I kinda liked being the only girl in the house.  So, learning he was a boy felt perfect for us.

When I was pregnant the third time, I really wanted a girl! Mostly because almost 4 years into motherhood I was starting to see a little more long term and had begun thinking about how my mom is one of my best friends and how I longed for a relationship like that in the years to come.  And also, a third boy might have killed Keith and I. ;)

I am so in love with this baby girl.  She is just like a big breath of fresh air.  We are only a few months in but I know because of her we will get to experience so much more.  From doing hair, to having baby dolls in our house, to teenage hormones, to wedding dress shopping and beyond.  So many things I never even realized I wanted to experience until I had her.   

And it feels perfect that she has 2 big brothers to love and protect her.
