People ask me all the time if I hope this baby is a boy or a girl.
I’ve read many IF blogger’s posts that basically say that it’s awful to wish for anything but a healthy baby.
Of COURSE I want a healthy baby.
Of COURSE I will love a baby boy or baby girl just the same.
People have all sorts of reasons for wanting a boy first or a girl first.
Many say that you need a big brother to be the protector.
But in my family, I was the oldest. I was the big sister. I was the protector.
I never wished I’d had a big brother to protect me.
I was just thankful to have such an awesome little sister.
And you know something I realized today?
I think that’s the biggest reason I feel this baby is a girl…
Because in my mind, having two little girls that could go through life as sisters like Audie and I have…
What a blessing.
Happy Birthday little sis. I love you!!!
(Note – I have 2 other awesome little sisters and an awesome little brother.
I was so blessed with a wonderful family and close siblings.
Love you all!)
