another girl...

i remember praaaayyyying when i was pregnant with lucy, that she be just like abel. he was the best in every way + it's all i'd known + i loved it. why wouldn't i want an exact replica of his personality only in girl form?!
...well, she's not.
& MAN would i be missing out if she weren't exactly the way that SHE is. she is hysterical + hammy, and girly + sassy + sweet + soooo many things that only she embodies + our sweet guy does not (and vice versa).
aside from adoring abel + all that he was/is, i think i was concerned that i'd compare them negatively or that if she wasn't like him she might not be as wonderful (so ridiculous). like most of my worries, i was wrong. he and she are the two most incredible little humans i could have ever dreamt of, i love them individually + love to celebrate their differences... and now we are having another, another girl!
i can't wait for her to get here + to get to know her + love all of her unique qualities the same way i love my other two. i am so curious if she will look like any of us or have any of the same tendencies! God is so good + so much more creative than we are, He has got something so special for us in her, and i really am just bursting at the seams (in more ways than one haha) ready to hold her + love her + see her life unfold.
it's incredible to me that the three best things i've been a part of creating, have really not had much to do with me at all. thank you, thank you jesus.

So excited for you, Hillary! And super excited to know your new little girl's name :) I'm with you in that I love that my two littles are completely different. I love seeing them grow into the little humans God intended for them to be. Precious photos of you and Lucy <3
