Ramblings

I was sitting in church on Sunday when this thought popped into my mind "I am terrified to have a little girl". I immediately realized this is why I had such a hard time adjusting to the idea of it but I'm so happy and grateful for this little life!

And I look at this and I'm not so scared


Then I think of all the stages in her life that I will be a part of....

Will I give my daughter a haircut that makes her look like a boy?


Or support her when she thinks these head shots will get her lots of modeling jobs?


Will she choose good boys to date?


Will she have good friends and be a good friend to others?


I'm trying to be a better example for her already, I realize I'm not the nicest person but in teaching her to be better at everything than I ever will be, it will keep me much more accountable for my choices.

We had the same experience when we found out Janae was a girl. Totally thought it was a boy, and then BAM! she wasn't.. I'm still terrified to have a girl, and she's already here! Mostly I'm frightened of the teenage years. But I guess we all just gut through it!

P.S. I totally remember that polka dot dress! And is that Grandma with you? She looks so young! I mean, I know she was at one point but I just never think of her that way.

Okay.. I just reread that and I know that's grandma, I guess I'm more wondering if that's you. It came out weird the first time!
