In the minutes and hours that followed our big news, my husband and I had many revelations about the reality of having a baby girl sink in.
"You're going to have to teach me how to braid her hair and do a ponytail," was one of his first comments over brunch, which made me smile. Followed by, "I'm going to have to get her a Purdue cheerleader outfit," his alma mater.
It seems so much more real now, knowing she's a she. I have felt the first hints of movement this week, little pops and bursts in the middle of my belly. I envision her wiggling around, kicking her feet, aiming at my belly button from the inside out.
This is such a magical time in our lives, I'm truly enjoying every moment of it.
