I love having a little girl. My husband and I chose to wait to find out the sex of our baby until the delivery room. Lillian has brought so much joy into our lives. I remember a lady at one of my baby showers telling me, “It always gets better!” as in, enjoy every step and don’t stress out too much with the small stuff because as baby grows it will get better.
Lillian is 9 months and that statement is very true. She’s growing a lot quicker than I thought she would. She’s just so much fun. I love when she gets excited and wraps her tiny arms around my neck. They don’t quite touch but she holds on with all her might. It’s her sense of security, knowing she can hang onto her mamma! Another favorite (one of many) is the feel of her long eyelashes on my cheek as I sneak in to give her a kiss. Because she’s so active, she always looking around and when I’m holding her and she turns her head, I can feel her long beautiful eyelashes. It’s a sweet, gentle feeling. I love that we can love on and be a blessing to this little girl that the Lord has entrusted to us. There are many little girls in this world who are not loved and cared for just because they are girls. That hurts my heart. My prayer for Lillian is that she will go further than Andrew and I will ever go. I speak life and destiny over my baby girl! The Lord has a purpose for her life. Thank you, Jesus!
