|After having a hard time finding a photographer I could afford, I borrowed a camera|
and took some myself! More to share soon!
As Desirae requested, we told nobody the gender until she could come meet the baby and be the first to find out - face to face... she said she didn't want to be disappointed on the way to the hospital if it was a boy, but knew once she was there she wouldn't care because babies are all cute. So we waited until that night when my friend Mel brought the kids up to see us and meet the baby. They all walked in and I said nothing, just showed them her wearing a hat with a bow on it... Des started laughing, then crying, then laughing, then crying... it had me and Matt both in tears. It was amazing to see her reaction to what we all know has been her constant prayer with God too. And since that moment, everything within her has appeared lighter. I know this little sister was just what my big girl needed. I'm so thankful that God has answered that request for her too. Even more than for myself - I wanted Des to have a little sister she can dress up and drive to dance class (her ideas!) :) I can't wait to see how they bond. There is nothing like relationship between sisters ♥
It just took me over 3 hours to write this post with a couple of nursing sessions, diaper changes, a couple of snacks, interruptions from the big kids and my head just not working right.... and that is why I'm not blogging much! Holy cow! I have so much more to share and hopefully I'll get to it, but for now, she is here, she is awesome and I get to call her mine for a while ♥ Thank you Jesus. ♥
