Baby P

I have been dreaming about our girl for over four years.
Dreaming of what she will be like, what her interests will be. I always envisioned my first child being a daughter and Truman admits he was picturing a girl, as well. (Even though he says she's going to be a stinker like I am...which is probably true.) 

She has also had a name for years.
Many friends and family already know (I'm terrible at keeping secrets) but we plan on keeping the full name a secret until she's born. Thankfully Truman likes the name just as much as I do so I don't have to pull the "I'm-delivering-this-baby-so-I-get-the-final-say" card. 
We came home from the doctor's office with a sealed envelope in hand. We had plans of waiting until dinner to find out but I couldn't stand the suspense. I made it all the way to the house but I begged Tru to rip it open the second we walked in the door. I shrieked like a child when I saw "it's a girl!" and started to cry and smother Truman with kisses. We went to dinner to celebrate and as we were discussing what we think she'll be like Truman shyly says "can I tell you a secret? I secretly hoped for a daughter." *Heart melted*


 I dream of who my baby girl is going to be. 
Kind and patient like her father. Creative and strong-willed like her mother.
Having the ability to be silly and weird like us both. 
I can't wait to help her develop a love and appreciation for music and overlooked beauty. We'll take her to shows so she can experience the joy of live music. 

Most importantly, I can't wait to teach her about her Creator.
I pray that she comes to know the love and grace of Jesus Christ and finds complete value in that alone.

 We had so much fun taking these pictures with Blue House Fotos. Rutheah did an amazing job and we can't wait to take more pictures with her as my belly grows! You can "like" her on Facebook and see more of her creative work!
