I meant to have this post up dayyyyys ago and every night after putting the kids to bed I would come downstairs and Jon would have Netflix on and be snuggled up in a blankie on the couch with an open spot next to him just calling my name. Who can say no to Netflix and quiet hubby snuggles? Not this girl. So I apologize for my delay because this shirt is perfect for Valentine's Day and you still have time to order to get it in time, but I inteded to give you more time than this! Good thing is, it's still in stock. I am wearing a size small for reference, but I could have gone to a medium because when I lift my arms it does show my belly.
Speaking of pink ruffle tops... I'm obsessed with having a little girl. It's beyond better than my wildest dreams. Decorating her nursery, picking out her clothes, twinning... all the way to hearing her girly squeals!
I pictured myself as an all boy mom, toting football gear and soccer cleats in my car. Spraying febreeze over every inch of their rooms. Being bear hugged by my teenage sons who are a foot taller than me years down the road. That's all I ever pictured. When we found out we were pregnant with baby number two I had this odd feeling it was a girl. Jon and I pushed that thought aside and went ahead planning boy names. I started pinning another boy themed nursery and that was that. At our 15week apt we were told our baby was a boy with 98% assurance. My dreams were just reconfirmed except I felt like something was off...? The whole time I just kept thinking, "it's a girl. I picture a boy, but I feel like it's a girl." And then we had our anatomy scan...
Even when the nurse said, "well, the doctor was wrong... you are, without a doubt, having a girl." I about fell off the table. Tears filled my eyes (and Jon's). Our lives and hearts were changed forever. And then we met our sweet Emery and she was beyond anything I could have ever imagined. She's laid back, chill, all smiles and loud girly squeals. Her dimples melt our hearts and they way her eyes light up send us into a dizzy tailspin. She has this calm about her that makes me calm. I just can't rave about her enough because she's everything I never pictured myself having. It's like God gave me the sweetest, angelic surprise I wasn't anticpating for my life. My sweet Emmie girl.
