dear daughter: Angela writes

As we countdown the days until meeting our baby girl, I asked some friends to write their thoughts on having a daughter.   It means so much that they would take time to share their thoughts and I get more excited with each letter.  I hope you enjoy them too.

All my life I wanted a boy as my first child....every one needs a big brother! However, God somehow knew that I truly needed a girl. She has changed my life in so many ways and made my life a daily adventure. Here are a few things that my little girl does that makes me say, "God, THIS is why I have a girl."
She asks a bazillion questions (I love making up answers to them)
She sits and plays with my hair
She plays by herself for hours
She puts everything away in its exact spot (I have created another OCD person in this world)
She loves shoes
She loves to match all her clothes and hair accessories
She can say the alphabet in French
She begs to wash the dishes
She loves to paint, color, draw, and play games
She started potty training at 1 1/2 yrs old
She has been able to buckle herself in her own carseat/booster seat since she was 2 1/2
She plays dress-up every day...and sometimes I let her go to the store in her outfit with the winter hat on in the middle of summer
She cooks me delicious meals in her toy kitchen
She has her ears pierced :)
She talks to herself constantly
She is a mother to all the children/cousins she plays with
She is the sweetest, funniest, BEST little girl in the world
Liv....you so blessed to get the chance to have a little girl soon...they are completely different and completely wonderful.
Thanks so much Angela  Knowing her sweet Katy, I can say she is all those wonderful things and so much more.

  1. So precious! Girls are wonderful, but not all the same either. My daughter favors her Daddy - in likes and various things. She's not into frilly dresses, pinks/purples, dolls or more. She has always loved other things...but she's still amazingly wonderful!


Here's the thing: I love your comments.
So thank you.

Have a lovely day.
Drink some coffee.
