Looking back 4 years...

Four years ago today I (we) were preparing to bring our 1st daughter into this crazy world.  I was so NOT wanting to mother a daughter. I knew what she would be up against in this world and also knew that I was great being a mom to my boys, but on the drama that I knew went along with raising girls..sigh....I actually cried on the sono table when they told us at 20 weeks we were having a girl....the tech said "oh you are so happy"...I said "No actually I would like you to recheck that she is a she, please..."  lol

I am only being honest here...of course I am so happy now that we have two girls, Molly and Samantha...but all my fears are coming true...the drama...oh the drama...

Tomorrow is Molly's 4th birthday...4 seems like such a milestone for some reason.  I wanted to share some pictures with you over the last 4 years...she walked early (9 months), she spoke early (sing the ABC's clearly at 22 months - see this UTUBE Video of her singing.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skUcMD-OwUQ) and she does everything (or wants to) that her big brother does...



WOW Looking at this picture of Easter years ago...her younger sister, Samie is her twin!

Hi Melissa,
As the mother of 4 girls, please know that you (we) are truly blessed! Girls can be difficult, trust me, the teen years are NOT easy!
In the long run, I wouldn't want it any other way! Girls are a gift!
Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday. Crazy I wanted a girl first because I had visions of a tight Mommy and daughter bond, doing hair, going shopping etc. but mine is a tom boy not interested in any of those things:)LOL I agree on the drama WHEW somedays can be a real challenge:)
