May 11 is an official holiday in our home! We celebrate It’s a Girl! Day to commemorate finding out via ultrasound that we were at very long last expecting a girl. We had prayed specifically for a daughter all of those years and experienced a mixture of joy and tears and relief when the technician told us we were having a girl.
Our celebration is pretty simple. Caroline gets to choose whatever she wants for lunch. The past few years it was Chinese, but this year it was Taco Bell (?!?!?!?). Since we almost never eat out due to my health issues, Taco Bell is a treat. LOL!
She also gets to choose one thing she would like to do or buy ($25 max). Since her birthday is in late September, it’s a nice fill-in between Christmas and her birthday. There’s nothing like being a little girl on a trip to Meijer to choose whatever you want! Inexplicably to me, she chose this. Our tastes are just so different! LOL!
We’re so thankful for our girl! Caroline is funny, clever, thoughtful, and compassionate. She brings so much joy to our lives. We’re thankful God chose to answer our prayers and send us this wonderful daughter.
Happy It’s a Girl Day!
