If you missed the announcement on my Facebook page, we are so very excited to announce that we are having a baby girl!!!
Phillip had me convinced it would be another boy, which I was perfectly okay with because I LOVE being a mom to boys. But as it got closer to the time for us to find out, I really started wanting a girl and I knew Jack and Aidan really wanted a sister.
I have been collecting and making little girly things for a few years now in hopes of someday having a daughter, adding them to the little dresses my mom had saved from when I was a baby. And if you follow me on Pinterest, you know I regularly pin things to my “If I ever have a little girl” board.
Needless to say, we are thrilled!
I’ll have to admit, having a daughter terrifies me a bit. The responsibility of raising a daughter seems quite overwhelming. There are so many things I am still learning, insecurities I still struggle with, and areas of my life I am continually working on, that I’m not sure if I am ready (or will ever feel ready) to raise up a strong and godly young woman. But I know that His strength is made perfect in my weakness, and that my daughter is His daughter and that He will equip me to raise her for His glory.
For those of you who have daughters, what words of advice or encouragement can you share with me as I prepare for this new path of motherhood?
Hope you are having a great summer!
