A letter to me

To Myself 4 Years Ago,

I know you think you may never want a girl because you love your little boy so much. And you don't know how you'll do her hair because you have and never will be good at doing your own hair. And you know how wonderful life was with older sisters which forces you to think- can a little girl really grow up normal without older sisters? I know you think having a second baby might not be the best idea right now when your stressed with so many other things that are happening in your life. But you will love her and love doing her hair and nails and you will see that an older brother can be patient (maybe not as patient) as a sister and this little girl will bring you and Jackson unbelievable happiness even during the toughest parts of your life.






Love,

Your Future Self

A letter to my pregnant self 5 minutes ago. you will cry when you read Suzanne's latest blog post. It's partly because you are crazy pregnant and partly because you have the same worries about having a girl this time around.
You rock Suzanne, welcome back!

Oh Suzanne. You are so great. Lilly is such a lucky girl and such a sweet little pumpkin too! I am not quite as bad as Brie, but I did get a little lump in my throat.

Thank you for posting this wonderful letter. I am TERRIFIED about possibly having a girl this time around for all the same reasons that you listed. This gives me hope that I will be able to mother a daughter.

I am glad you had the same fears and still produced a BEAUTIFUL little girl.

I just had a girl after having 3 boys . . . I totally relate to the concern about doing hair! Both of your kids are so cute!
