Girl birth announcements still make me a little sad

Back when we found out we were having another boy, I wrote about how I was feeling. 98% of the time I am totally happy that I have two boys. Seriously, there are so many amazing things about being the mom of two boys that I would not get to experience if I hadn’t had them. And if you met my boys, you’d know why I’m totally in love with them.

But every once in awhile, I see/read/hear about someone who is having a girl and I still get a little pit in my stomach. I still miss the girl I never got to meet… you know, the one that I’ve dreamed about ever since I was a little girl. And before you ask, NO, we are not going for number 3. Although, we have kicked around the idea of adopting a girl … later, much later.

Its like I’m grieving over someone I never knew.  It really is a strange feeling to feel like you’re missing someone in your life when you’re so happy with what you have.

    I could have written this post. It’s so complicated isn’t it? You LOVE your boys, cannot imagine life without them but also so want a girl (and have done your whole life) but can’t or don’t want to have more kids. It’s bittersweet. I love your idea of adopting, though. Perhaps you’ll get your girl in the end…xxx
