Pink or blue what will it be? After seven long months of waiting we are so incredibly excited to finally know and announce that we’re having a baby girl! The baby shower was last weekend and we had a great time. It’s hard to believe that we only have 2 months left before she arrives.
My two cousins where the only people who knew what we were having and put together colored balloons hidden in a burlap box. I cannot begin to tell you how nervous I was when pulling the strings to release the balloons. It wasn’t that I preferred one sex over the other, it was just something so private and special between my husband and I, loving the baby for simply being a miracle and our child. Once the strings were pulled and the balloons where out–we, along with our family and friends, would now know the sex. It sounds silly I know, but that’s how I felt right before pulling that string.
Seeing the pink peak through the burlap as we struggled to get the balloons to fly out, I knew I had a lifetime of joy and adventure ahead of me. Of course, this would be the same if I was having a boy, but with a girl, I had a little bit more experience in knowing what to expect. I cannot wait to meet her, read to her, cook for her (and with her), take her places, and see life through the eyes of a child. I am absolutely in love.
All that’s left is to survive the coming heat of the summer and finish all the house prep. So excited to welcome our little one into the world!
