“I want a girl next,” I would always say to my husband before we got pregnant with our second child. Knowing that it was the man who “makes” the decision I wanted to be clear about this from the get-go.
He has a brother whom he is very close to, so he would always respond, “Nope. Two boys.”
At this I would always say, “Be generous. You already have your boy.”
We didn’t know the sex of either of our babies until they came out—but shortly after our daughter was born I remember looking at my husband with a beaming smile and saying, “In the end, your generous spirit ruled again.”
And thanks to me for growing her!
And thanks to her for coming!
And thanks to Grandma Cyndee for making a fabulous theme party dinner to celebrate our little Atalie turning one. Theme: finger food! Highlights pictured below!
