It's a girl thing

She's 4 months old

"I could try to grin harder, but I'd pop right out of this bumbo."

I get a lot of questions about what it's like finally having a girl.  I'm honestly still in awe of that fact, but I'm also absolutely reveling in delight!  She adds a sweetness that is already so girly, so refreshing in a houseful of rowdiness.  I'm sure she'll be a part of that rowdiness someday soon, but for now, I'm loving the sweet smiles, the cute little coos and cries, the cuddles, the respite of girlishness where I can dawdle every morning over picking out which darling outfit she'll wear that day or what oversized, slightly obnoxious hairbow perfectly coordinates.  I didn't know how much I was longing for a girl until I had one.  She is my Mercy from the Lord.
