We’re Having A….

Dress: Rachel Pally (old, but I love this version here) || Addi’s Dress: Gap

….GIRL! We shared the news with close family and friends a few weeks ago, but for everyone else we have been keeping this secret for a while now and I thought it was time we finally shared the exciting news that we will be welcoming a baby girl to our family this July!  To be honest, I was pretty sure all along that we would be having another little girl.  When I first found out I was pregnant there was maybe a total of a week where I thought boy, but my gut (as well as the nausea and complete blah feeling that everyone says comes along with girls ) told me girl.  I was afraid Brian would be a little disappointed when he found out we were having another girl but I actually think he was relieved, his exact words were “we know girls…this is a really good thing!” It made me chuckle because he is 100% right.

While I am over the moon excited, there is also a very large part of me that is very nervous. Nervous because two little girls about two years apart could be a recipe for trouble, but mostly nervous because I only have a brother, and my husband is one of three boys, so the relationship between sisters is so foreign to me.  Everyone I have talked to said the bond between sisters is incredible and it doesn’t matter if there is two years or 20 years between them it is a best friend for life.  The thought of Addison having a forever best friend brings tears to my eyes and I know she is going to be an amazing big sister. I’m sure there will be fights and tears between them, but I can only hope these two stand up for each other always. So anyone with more than one little lady or a sister I’m all ears and ready for some good advice!

Hurry up and get here baby girl you have three (well five if you count our pup and kitty) very exited people who can’t wait to meet you!
