If I Had A Girl ...

The first few months of my second pregnancy, I was just about convinced I was having a girl. My first trimester was way different than my first pregnancy, I had whenever sickness and would start dry-heaving at random moments throughout the day. My hypoglycemia acted up all the time, and I just wasn't sure what I was having (unlike with Maddox - I knew from the beginning I was having a boy).

To be honest, I had to convince myself that having a baby girl would be a good thing. You see, I am a simple girl. I am not high maintenance. I am easy-going, and hardly ever throw fits. As an adolescent and a teenager, I gave my parents a run for their money, and I definitely did not want a little diva running around our house! I loved my son, and had to prepare myself for ultrasound day if they announced a little girl. Hubby and I discussed names ... I liked Aubrey, he liked Taylor ... and I started searching for a nursery theme.

My friend, Betsy, is having a baby girl just a few days before my birthday this year, and talking with her as she prepares for Katie's arrival, I was reminded of the nursery set I had all picked out for my future daughter. To my relief surprise, I was preggo with my little man, Sean. No need for this adorable Glenna Jean Jitterbug set, but I'll admit that it was fun picking it out!

What cute bedding! I can totally relate. I was so glad that LR was a boy, but now I long for some girliness in my life. Hopefully one of my little sisters will have a girl, so I can borrow her for my fix, then take her home when the diva starts to get to me.
