Today we had "the ultrasound" and it confirmed what I thought was my worst fear: we are having our third girl.
You see, Joel and I have known for a long time that there is a little boy that belongs in our family. It is something that neither of us can deny...it is such a strong feeling that each of us have been very surprised when we found out that both Bria and Chloe were girls. I always joked that I have such horrible pregnancies, that God knows I won't do it again once I get my boy. So far, my theory seems to be correct. And I have been really adamant this time that I am NOT doing this again. It is just too hard. But...I can see that there is possibly something else in the plan for our family...and hopefully it's not 8 girls before that boy comes along!!!
So, dear unborn little girl...I a writing this to let you know that I am in no way disappointed that you are a girl. I am thrilled. The last few weeks I began having a strong feeling that this was not going to be the boy we thought we were going to have. And I am fine with it. I am very excited for you to make your entrance and join the Neves girls, and they are very excited to see you too! Chloe held the pictures on the walk out of the hospital and kept saying over and over, "I love my baby sister!" and Bria, even though she was hoping for a baby brother, is quite fine with the situation. She's just thrilled to be able to help me take care of a new baby and can't wait for August to get here.
You are meant to be a part of our family, and I'm glad you were sent now...because if a boy were to come, we would never have had you. Just look at your little profile...you are such a Neves baby already! We love you so much, even before we have met you, and I hope you will always know that.
