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.
