I haven’t touched the ground in almost 24 hours. D and I are both SO HAPPY to be having a baby girl. It’s weird actually, I really thought in my heart that Scrappy was a boy. And now that we know she’s a girl, I can’t imagine it any other way.
It’s still hitting me in waves. Finding out this amazing news has made this experience feel so much more real. It’s really happening! I’m going to have a daughter! A DAUGHTER!! I am literally seeing pink.
D is thrilled too. I think he was a bit shocked at first but now that the reality is setting in, we’re both getting more and more excited by the minute. When D was leaving for work this morning, he rubbed my belly and said “Bye my little girl! Have a good day!” So sweet.
We can’t stop talking about her, dreaming about her, thinking about her and planning for her arrival.
We have already decided that:
-She will never date (no guy will ever be good enough for her I’m afraid)
-She will never wear makeup
-She will never wear dangling earrings, or have her ears pierced for that matter
-She will never stay out past 7pm
Thinking about this baby as a girl just makes me want to protect her.
Also, last night, we made a firm decision on a name. I am really happy with it. I haven’t decided it I’m ready to share it with the world yet… Well, OK, maybe just with you guys…
Our daughter will be Maya.
