Baby girl is 9 months old!

Way back when we started trying to have kids, I knew with absolutely certainty that I wanted a boy.  In fact, I wanted multiple boys.  You could sort of say I was more ambivalent about having a girl, except that I wasn’t sure it was ambivalence as much as flat-out not wanting one.

I was a total tomboy growing up.  What the hell would I do with a girl?

And you know that being a tomboy, I would end up with the frilliest girliest girl around.  No thank you.

When I was pregnant with my son, I was so convinced he was a girl that I gave myself pep talk after pep talk, to the point I was almost disappointed that he was a boy.  Then I relapsed to a total fear of having a girl the second time around.

So of course, there she was.

Today, nine months into this whole having a girl thing, I can say it’s one of the best things that ever happened to me.


Maybe it’s just that I’m much more relaxed around babies than I used to be (I had never held an infant before having my son).

But whatever the reason, I have had so much fun with her since day 1.  I love having a daughter, and I can’t wait to see the person she turns into as she grows up.

Happy 9 months, baby girl.


(And see, I’ve even learned how to dress her like a girl- mostly thanks to my friends who refused to let me dress her like a boy…) 🙂
