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!
Have you ever written about why you both specifically prayed for a girl? I couldn’t find that in the articles you linked.
I don’t know if I ever specifically wrote about that. I think we both felt we were better suited to raising a daughter as opposed to a son. I had always wanted a girl. Very long story I won’t get into, but we also really wanted a girl for my mom to have a granddaughter. She was the first person I called after the ultrasound and she was so happy we were having a girl as well.
