It took me a long time to fully accept that this is my new life! I'm HAPPY, don't get me wrong!! But, I think especially since I didn't find out the gender until birth, it REALLY took a while to sink in for me. I more felt like I was "pretending" to have a girl, than really have one, ya know.
I try to keep her dressed in really sweet girly things, and people are always making comments about how I "always have her so dressed up". Well, I can't help it. I've waited so long, and the other part is that when she is in the girly things, it's a visual reminder for me that she REALLY IS A GIRL!
I still expect to see a penis every time I change her diaper. LOL I'm always just a little thrown off when I open it up, and there's not one there.
She is so sweet, and I really do love every minute with her! And she has made me appreciate my other boys so much more now for being BOYS!! I still hate when people make comments about how we "finally got the girl" or anything that makes it seem like my boys were only in the way to getting to her, ya know. But, I am just thrilled with my family now. I think often how everyone says the "millionaire family" is a boy and a girl, and how much richer WE are for getting THREE BOYS and a girl!!
