Today is a special day to me.
One year ago today, we found out we were having a girl.
I just [knew] she was a girl. I can’t explain how I knew. I just did. It’s like I just [knew] I was pregnant without any outward signs or missed period. Gut feeling? Instinct?
Lots of folks were sure we were having a boy. I don’t know why. That always mystified me.
I wanted a little girl [so bad]. I cried a little when the ultrasound tech told us the gender. Through my shaky voice and huge grin, I told Stephen, “I told you so.”
And, oh what a year since that day.
It’s almost as if I’ve become a new person. I mean, I’m still me. But I’m [more].
Does that make sense?
And our family.
Our little family went from a little black and white picture to a roly poly squishy baby. And she’s grown [so much] in just nearly eight short months.
There’s much more to say and do, but short-nap baby is awake and I have many crafting-related errands to run today.
I leave you with this.
and I ask you…. when did she become a teenager?
