Thankful Thursday [Gender Reveal]

Good morning!

Today I am thankful for baby GIRLs….

and sisters, and bows, and dresses, and giggles, and pink.

Well, at least 98% thankful. Which is what the lovely ultrasound tech told us was the possibility of the baby being a girl when my (probably) daughter would not move her legs from the one position that hid her gender. I am also thankful the tech was gracious enough to schedule us for another ultrasound, you know, just to be sure.

A few months ago one of my friends told me she thought the baby was a boy, or a very strong willed girl. I shuddered at the thought of a girl more strong willed than Ina. Now I am starting to think it is correct, because although (probably) she wouldn’t move during the ultrasound, she was having a full on dance party from 2:30 to 5 this morning. 

I am thankful that Dan made dinner last night while I was working.

Ina has a new obsession with my home office and wants to join me anytime I go there. So many things to see and buttons to press! So, I am forever grateful to Mickey Mouse, who kept my daughter out of my office while Dan couldn’t.

I am thankful for snow.

“Momma, let’s eat the snow, ONE more time!” while holding up her one little pointer finger. We tasted the snow “one more time” about twenty times.

I am thankful for the beginning of spring. I know it snowed last night, and the majority of the days ahead show snow in the forecast, but yesterday I could smell it. As I was walking into work, I could tell spring was near. Also, the past few mornings I have heard birds singing, which is always a promising sign, right?

I am thankful that yesterday’s breakfast tasted better than it looked, which was obviously pretty easy.

I am thankful for Danielle and her allowance of Ina being “bare bottom” while potty training. So, for the second time in this post, I am thankful for dresses. 

What are you thankful for?

  1. Oh my goodness, Racheal, congratulations to you, Dan and big sis Ina on most likely another daughter!!! How wonderful! I have four sons and grew up with three big brothers, so I just get so happy when I hear someone is having a daughter! Although I don't have firsthand experience, I truly feel there's something so very special about the bond of sisterhood! I love reading your very human blog and often laugh and nod as I feel your perspective day after day! I'm sharing your hoping spring is very near sentiment, Wisconsin is miserable right now! :) God bless you, friend, and this journey you and your family are walking down!
