I waited a long time for a baby girl.
I never thought it would happen. I always dreamed it would, but I really was never sure if it *actually* would happen.
Victoria is my little sidekick. My very best accessory. If she’s not on my hip, she’s on my husband’s. She has become quite literally… our little best friend.
Last night I was chatting with a friend from college. We were talking about life and kids and family and work and just about everything. Then she asked me, “What it is like to have a daughter after all this time?”
I thought about it for a few seconds and I couldn’t help but say, “No different than having the boys.”
She laughed and said, “Well… wait till she’s older and asking you for money for clothes and about boys and about all girly stuff!”
And I know this is true. But for right now. For right now at this time in my life with Victoria.
Seeing this smile…
… every single day. I mean, she’s ALWAYS smiling. It was like this with the boys. It was seeing the connection. It was about the bonding. It was about looking into my child’s eyes and just knowing that the universe made it this way… you’re my child. You’re mine.
It’s a pretty amazing thing.
What is it like having a daughter?
It’s the best thing in the world. It’s seeing me and her. It’s seeing her dad in her. it’s seeing her brothers in her.
It’s seeing my child.
Boy or girl.
It’s just being their MOM.
