it's a girl.

musicboy was right; i was wrong. i am not unhappy at all about being wrong. 

i am totally overwhelmed, though, by the idea of a girl.  i think somehow i think it's easier to raise a boy, perhaps because i have no idea how difficult it is to be a boy in this world. i do, however, know how hard it is to be a girl in this world.

and it's hard.

i am in awe, and a bit in shock, and again centered in my pretty constant feeling of surreal. 

more later, i think, but now i have to go pretend to teach well.  who'll be thinking about it?


  1. dresses and lace-trimmed socks and bows and pink and dolls and daisies and pigtails. being a girl is hard, yes, but also so very very wonderful. think of all the wonderful things you get to share with her about being a girl. little girls are lovely. :)

  2. Hate to tell you, but concentrating gets even harder as you go along...especially as the kicks get kickier! :)

    Congrats to you guys!

  3. I'm telling you, girls will have you obsessed with them, not that little boys dont but there is just something about baby girls. Congrats you guys.
