How does it feel to have a girl? I am asked this a lot these past few days. To be honest, I am enjoying every sleeping and waking moment of my new baby. Of Ivy. And the fact that she happens to be a girl hasn't really mattered just yet. Sure, there's the changing of the diapers and little girly squeaks and songs (she sings already, I tell you.)
But she's my baby. Gender not really thought about.
Maybe when I start to pull out more of her pink clothes and very non-boy outfits, maybe then it will start to sink in. But for now, I'm in baby bliss. It's all snuggles and kisses and her warm head resting in the nook of my neck. It's just right. And she's my girl.
