Since discovering yesterday that the men will outnumber the ladies in the family, I feel very strongly connected to my first-born, my sweet girly-girl, Eva. It’s just she and I, the girls of the family.
We spent some time snuggling on the couch yesterday, cuddling and giggling. It is so much fun just talking with her these days. She is such a little person now. And a very feminine little person! She loves pink and purple, butterflies, princesses and ballerinas. She loves to wear dresses and wears her “high heels” everywhere.
I am so thankful to have Eva. I think it would’ve been very difficult for me if we had two boys in a row without having a girl first. I remember when I was pregnant with her and I thought, “If I just have a girl first then I will at least know I have her. I won’t have to worry that I will never have a daughter.” (I really wanted to have a daughter!) With Eva, we chose not to find out the gender until the moment of birth. I was so sure that we were having a boy, everyone was so sure it was a boy. When they put her on my belly and finally announced it was a girl, it was a dream come true for me. I honestly didn’t think I would have my wish come true on the first shot! Eva is such a little sweetheart and I look forward to many girly moments with my girl.
This last picture, she demanded a kiss on the lips: “On the lips mommy! We are best friends. Best friends forever!”. One day she’ll kill me for posting this, but I will treasure it in my heart (and online) forever.
