I went to Babies r us before returning home and entered the store a new mommy. I wasn't just a boy mommy shopping for blue and green or sports and animals. I was now a mommy of a little girl too. I had permission to not just glance with envy at the girl clothes (and the LARGE selection of them). I had permission to BUY!!! I had permission to imagine my own little girl wearing them. My own little girlie girl with bows and lace and ruffles! It was like I was in a dream. It just didn't feel real. Was I really able to look at them? Was I really able to buy them for ME! I did find two precious ones that I bought. One that was just adorable and pink and the other one reminded me of Strawberry Shortcake, who was my favorite as a little girl. I had my whole room in her!
When I was pregnant with Asher we didn't find out the sex. I saw this cute onesie for a girl that said, "Worth the wait!" I bought it just in case and I have held onto it since them. Now little Sydney will be able to rock this shirt in style!
When I got home the first thing Dallas said to me is, "So mom what is it? Is it a baby boy or baby girl in your belly????" He couldn't wait to find out! When I told them the excited shock on Dallas face was the cutiest. Boston was also in total shock. He told me he was a little bummed it was a girl because he was thinking it would work out better if we had another boy, that way Asher would have someone to play with like him and Dallas play together. I told him I'm sure Asher will play with the baby girl too.
Before heading to church my sister in law surprised us and stopped by with doughnuts with pink icing to celebrate. The boys really liked that!
At church tonight my girlfriend Tiffany surprised me with 2 burp clothes and a bib embroidered with Sydney's name on them. It made me cry. To see something with her name on it. Wow! What a precious gift!!!
